Luck o’ the Irish, Special Events and Summer
Technically, today is the “Ides of March,” but let’s focus on St. Patrick’s Day! It’s a much luckier day, and it’s less than two days anyway. Get ready to (sham)rock and roll with our latest updates.
Do You Believe in (Hollywood) Magic?
The spring online tournament – Hollywood Magic – spreads over four days a little later this month (March 24-27), and we hope you’ll join us!
The schedule is full of both two-session and single-session events, so there’s something for everyone – including lots of chances for gold points. We’ll also be uploading new videos from celebrity speakers on Thursday, March 24, so be sure to visit the Hollywood Magic page on our website during the event.
Playing Bridge to Support CommunitiesApril is Charity Month! Throughout the month, face-to-face clubs can hold special games that will raise funds for the ACBL Charity Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to awarding grants in each of the ACBL’s districts. Face-to-face clubs will also have chances to hold special games supporting charities in their own community. Oh, and there are upgraded masterpoint awards for players!
In the virtual clubs, there’s Charity Week (April 4-10, Monday to Sunday), and a portion of these table fees will go to the ACBL Charity Foundation, too. Plus, players will win double black points.
Keep an eye on our Upcoming Events page for more details coming soon!
