Happy Holidays ABA
It seems like only a
few weeks ago we were celebrating the holidays and getting ready to ring in
2014 and now we are ringing in 2015. Where does the time go?
2014 was a banner
year for our tournaments in Las Vegas and Atlanta with near record table counts
and attendance. It was not so good a year in recruiting new members although
our scrip award campaign did bring in 178 new members. Not as well as we had
hoped, but something. Our Membership chair, Dorris West-Sides and her committee
have put together a program we hope will encourage membership and play in the
American Bridge Association.
As we celebrate this
holiday season, let us not forget our sick and shut-ins, our Final Grand
Slammers and those less fortune than ourselves. Call a friend or lend a helping
hand to someone.
I’d like to extend
Holiday Greetings to our members and wishing you a Happy and Prosperous New
Year. A special Holiday Greetings and thank you to the staff in our national
office: Gertrude Guffie, Madeline Miller and Willetta Phipps and to their
support help, Launa Hooks and Tim Beauford.
