Mentoring clip.webp

January - April of 2023 in Unit 169 is Mentor-Mentee Season.  

One of the BEST ways to develop as a player is to have a Mentor, an experienced player who will partner with a newer player and help them grasp new concepts and skills at bridge.  We hope that YOU will be a part of this, either as a Mentor or as a Mentee.  M-M pairs are asked to play together at least 4 times in local games during Jan. – April. The season culminates on April 15, with the special Mentor-Mentee Celebration at the Unit Game in Greensboro. Please reserve this date on your calendar, andcontact one of the M-M Coordinators to sign up.

Please sign up to be a Mentor or Mentee today!

Coordinators for the 2023 Mentor-Mentee Program are: 

For the Greensboro area:  Cecelia Ray (, 336-375-6805), assisted by Rich Peffer

For the Winston-Salem area:  Martha Meyer (,  
336-416-6998), assisted by Cindy Wright

Unit 169 Players Club 2023

December 28, 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 quality 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 increased 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 Unit 169.  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.


Please note that our annual expenses for Unit 169-sponsored tournaments total approximately $80,000 ... before the first attendee walks thru the door!  Even though our bank balance is healthy, it is because of these up-front expenses that the money in our account is maintained as a 6-9 month reserve.  


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
