Wanted: More School Bridge Clubs
How can you help?
If you know of someone who will help recruit students to try out a school bridge club, please inform any board member of New England Youth Bridge, Inc. The recruiter could be a school faculty member or other school-connected individual who would personally reach out to students, a parent who will recruit not only their child but also the friends of their child and/or will personally coordinate responses to a notice to parents from the school’s Parent Teacher Organization, or a student who will recruit his/her friends to join. New England Youth Bridge (NEYB) will help the bridge club succeed for the recruited participants by supplying lesson plans and – if you do not want to teach the students yourself – by recruiting a bridge player to teach the lessons. Just contact a board member of NEYB (names are listed below) to talk about how to proceed.
Now is the time to follow up, so that a new school bridge club can begin soon after the start of the 2015-16 school year.
NEYB is a tax exempt charitable organization. NEYB, which charges no fees for teaching youth to play bridge, offers not only lesson plans, teaching tips, cards, boards, and bidding boxes, but also, as necessary, financial assistance to help the youth bridge club succeed.
NEYB board members are Jeff Lehman, Lisa Allison, Pam Miller, Adam Parrish, Jim Rasmussen, Adam Grossack, and Barbara Doyle.
District 25 has a reservation specialist for the Master's regional in Mansfield, November 4 - 8, 2015. If you have any problem making a room reservation at the bridge rate, please call the hotel directly at 508-339-2200 and ask for Martha Morris. You can also contact Martha via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For partnership requests please contact the Tournament Chairman, Joe Brouillard, via email at Joe@JoeBrouillard.Com.
