UNIT 169 PLAYERS CLUB 2023
November 16, 2022
Our mission is to provide challenging and fun bridge tournament experiences for Central Carolina Bridge Association members
Our focus is to successfully execute four quality bridge tournaments each year. This entails using great venues with easy access and parking, clean facilities, providing appropriate snacks and beverages, and using qualify ACBL directors. In order to achieve this goal, we need additional financial support. We are asking our friends who love this game to help. The cost of hosting a quality tournament has increase and, as we build back our attendance at our tournaments, entry fees do not completely cover our cost. Therefore, we are seeking a yearly contribution from those who can and are willing to help. We will not be passing envelopes at club games asking for contributions. By securing appropriate funding up front, we can plan and budget appropriately for each tournament. Those who chose to help will become members of the Central Carolina Bridge Association Unit 169 Player’s Club. There will be recognition and appreciation events for those who join.
TOURNAMENT SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
SILVER LEVEL: $100—$249 per person
GOLD LEVEL: $250—$499 per person
PLATINUM LEVEL: $500 and up, per person
Checks should be made payable to "Central Carolina Bridge Association" and given to one of the Unit's board members, or mailed to Dixie Culver, Treasurer, 2318 Kirkpatrick Place, Greensboro, NC 27408
