ACBL hosts Youth NABC in Las Vegas

Hundreds of students will gather this summer in Las Vegas to compete in the annual Youth North American Bridge Championships. From pair events to team events, players 19 and younger will play for fun, trophies and scholarships.

Players of all skill levels are welcome, with special events for those new or just learning the game. For the more serious player, up to $4000 in scholarship prize money will be awarded.

This event is free to all ACBL members, and membership is only $15 for those who would like to join.

Preregistration is now open. More information can be found at:

District 16 is one of five districts that has been chosen to receive the “Charity of the Year” grants for 2014.

Beginning in 2005, the ACBL Charity Foundation began issuing grants--these grants are now referred to as Charities of the Year.

If you have a charity that you would like to be considered for a grant, please submit your request—the organization must be a designated 501 (c) 3 organization.  Please include any information that may be helpful in understanding why the organization should be considered and in need of receiving the grant. Also, include the name, address and contact person/information of the organization.

Please note that grants will not be awarded to any organization related to bridge. There are two other foundations that award grants specifically to the bridge community:  Educational Foundation and Foundation for the Preservation and Advancement of Bridge.

Request for grants must be received by July 1, 2014.   Please submit your request to:  Nancy Strohmer, District 16 Charity Committee Chair, 114 Broad Oaks Court, Houston, TX 77056 / nastrohmer@yahoo.com.

If you have any questions, please contact Nancy Strohmer (Houston) nastrohmer@yahoo.com or committee members Jim Harp (Dallas) harpiii@aol.com,or Larry Davis (Austin) larrysdavis@att.net.
