October 2019 Southern California Bridge News
We do have a district website and a Minnesota bridge blog, but those aren't the same as having a newsletter that comes out on a regular basis (be it monthly or quarterly). I remember when I lived in Northern California in the early 90's and played bridge for ...
October 2019 Southern California Bridge News
I wasn't involved in that decision - it probably occurred before I even moved to Minnesota. It probably had something to do with the fact that there are 5 large states (geography-wise) in our district.

Open Las Vegas Discussion Thread
In 2010, the Fall NABC was at the Orlando Marriott World Center, near, but not in Disney. I liked that location. I believe it had free parking and we found many good nearby restaurants and grocery stores - we did have a rental car.
