DONATION TO LOCAL AREA FOOD BANKS

Again, this year, the CMBA Board of Directors has voted to donate to the local area food banks to share our good will with those less fortunate.  We increased our donation to $1500 which is almost double what we were able to donate last year.  The money was distributed as follows:  Worcester County Food Bank: $600; Rachael's Table in Worcester: $250; Montachusett Veteran's Outreach Center: $250; Community Action Center of Gardner: $200 and lastly $200 also to the food bank program of the Pilgrim Congregational Church in Leominster. This covers all the areas we play in and where most of our players reside.  Rachels' Table and the Worcester Food Bank provide help to Grafton, Auburn, Worcester, West Boylston, Holden, Rutland and many other towns around the Worcester area.  OUR THANKS to all of you who made this possible by coming out to play in our monthly Unit Championship Games and our Spring and Fall Sectional tournaments.  All the members of CMBA should be proud of this accomplishment.  HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!!  Keep on playing and see you at the bridge table soon.

SPECIAL CELEBRATION AT OUR UNIT GAME ON JULY 12
Welcome

WELCOME to the Central Mass Bridge Association, or CMBA Web Site. CMBA is Unit 113 of the ACBL, American Contract Bridge League. Membership is open to all Central Massachusetts contract bridge players who enjoy this challenging, competitive and mind-stimulating card game.

The greater Worcester area has several games a week at five locations. Click on the CLUBS in Unit 113 in the upper left hand corner for a list of all weekly games and locations.

OTHER GAMES -In addition, games are sponsored monthly by the Unit and are held at the Auburn Senior Center, 4 Goddard Drive, Auburn, Ma 01501. One or two of these may be two-day Sectional tournaments. See schedule to the right.

NEWCOMERS are always welcome at CMBA bridge games. Some clubs provide partners if a player arrives 15 minutes before the scheduled game time; or call the club contact, listed in the club section, to ensure that a partner can be provided. DUPLICATE BRIDGE is similar to party or rubber bridge games. Most games are stratified which allows players of similar experience to compete with one another playing the same cards in each session.
