Welcome to the Unit 176 Home Page


Unit 176 is very excited about implementing a program to bring new players to our wonderful game of bridge. We will be using the Learn Bridge in a Day (LBIAD) curriculum.   Our plan is to teach this five hour class on a regular basis.  Our 1st class is conjunction with the Labor Day Regional.  It will be Aug 29th 10:30 – 3:30 at the Renaissance Hotel.  This is not for you but it is for your family, friends and neighbors.  Help us spread the word.  The registration form is here.   If you have ideas for another venue contact Martha Young or email DallasUnit176@yahoo.com.

The ACBL has activated a new site
( http://live.acbl.org/) where tournament results are posted. You can also opt for E-MAIL and/or text notification of you results.
