A. J. Stephani ACBL Board of Directors District 11 Representative
June Update on ACBL Developments - I’ve been providing more updates than usual, which shouldn’t be surprising given the rate at which the ACBL is making on-the-fly adjustments to news in the world around us. It’s certainly a period in our lives that we won’t easily forget, unfortunately so, and I hope you’re making the best of it. I want to put in a plug here for making sure you can receive email communications from the ACBL. This is the best way to receive news about what’s going on in the bridge universe, and not just for the ACBL. Our District, your Unit, and even some of your clubs use your ACBL preferences and contact information to notify you of developments. If you don’t currently receive these messages, here’s what you can do:
• Go to “ACBL.org”, then click the
• "MyACBL" button (you’ll need to register if you haven’t done so already), then click
• "Privacy Settings" in left hand menu, then click
• "Subscribe" under "General Email Communication", (make sure your current email address is correct under “Member Information” and correct if necessary), then click the
• "Update" button ...MORE
Spring 2020 Update
Special Report (March 2020)
When does face-to-face bridge reopen? State and Local Health Regulations and Orders matter, and so does common sense. Here are the ACBL Reopening Recommendations.
COVID Screens - some states require barriers between people situated closer than 6 feet from each other. If your club is considering reopeining and you want an affordable do-it-yourself table barrier, see this Bridgewinner's Article COVID Screens.
