Our President, Steve Maltzman, signs the Lease on November 26. As soon as the architect's drawings are complete, demolition and refurbishing will begin.
PLUS WE'LL HAVE A GREAT RESERVATION SYSTEM
The Board also agreed to use the friendly-user reservation system now being used by Small Slams and Tucson Charity bridge clubs, so many of you will be familiar with it. We will be sending out an email with more information on how the system works in the near future.
Pictured is the entrance to the Mountainview Plaza, the home of the Northwest Tucson Bridge Club, Inc., our brand new ACBL bridge club opening in early 2019. The address is Suite 147, 1171 E. Rancho Vistoso Blvd., Oro Valley, AZ 85755. Click anywhere on this section for a link to a map. Membership is open to all players in the Greater Tucson area who play in one or more of our games. Beginning February 1, 2019 (if not sooner), we will have open games on Wednesday and Thursday and Limited games on Tuesday and Friday. We hope to add a Monday game as soon as there is sufficient interest. Additionally, special games and training sessions will be offered by a team of qualified and certified bridge teachers and directors. Initial table fees will be $8 for Open games and $6 for Limited games. Next step: demolish the old.
