President's Message 

 

Happy Holidays ABA Members,

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.

George Hudson
