Welcome to ACBL Unit 490 (Salem-McMinnville Clubs)

CANCELLED—The Wednesday (October 2, 2019) and Saturday (October 5, 2019) games at Capital Manor have been cancelled due to the Seaside Regional being held during that week.

During the balance of Sept. 2019 Kevin will be teaching a 30 minute class on 2/1 Saturdays at 5:30 pm.  Hopefully you will stay and play bridge after the class.

Swiss Mixer AND Club Appreciation (Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Capital Manor at 6:00 pm) – This is a wrinkle on the traditional Swiss Teams game style – Players arrive at the game in pairs, not teams – Right before game time, the field is divided up into “more experienced” and “less experienced” pairs – Each team is created by semi-randomly matching one “more experienced” pair with one “less experienced” pair.  No super-teams! – With a relatively balanced field, everyone has a chance to do well. AND, we’ll sprinkle a little Gold Dust.  If you have questions or think you might come to play, please contact Kevin Kacmarynski (2dragons@peak.org or 503-838-1102).  Reservations are *not* required but I would like to have a rough idea of about how many people to expect.
