2018 San Diego Spring Sectional

Once again, Unit 539 will be hosting its bi-annual Open Sectional at Marina Village, Friday, March 2nd through Sunday, March 4th. Set in a relaxed atmosphere in Mission Bay with lots of parking and fresh air, this Sectional will boast a variety of events as usual. If you favor pairs events, you'll find the right one for you. Open pairs are offered morning and afternoon sessions, both Friday and Saturday, as well as 2 limited events (1499ers, 299ers) for those who prefer to play with their peers. If teams games are your favored event, single session stratiflighted swiss team games are being held on Sunday. In addition, we will continue to offer a pairs game at 1:00 PM on Sunday for those who prefer to play a single session of bridge on Sunday.

The good news is that we have managed to secure one LARGE room for the Sectional which will hold the majority of the events. A second smaller room will be used to supplement it as needed.

A light lunch will be served daily and snacks will be available throughout the day. For those playing Swiss on Sunday, we promise a nice hot meal provided by our favorite caterer, San Diego Catering.

2017 NLM Sectional – Mission Accomplished

This year's NLM Sectional was a great success with 68 tables of competition, exceeding last year's total of 64 tables. The Sectional was a joint venture by the San Diego (539) and La Jolla (526) Units. The tournament was held on Friday and Saturday, October 13th and 14th, at the Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center at 4128 Executive Drive in La Jolla. Thank you, one and all, to the players who made this year's NLM Sectional a rousing success—HOORAH!

It takes a lot of work and a lot of people to put on a Sectional. Thanks go to all the volunteers and workers—seen and unseen—who made this event possible. They include Mike Koscielski, Lamya Agelidis, Ellen Michaud, Gigette Caldwell, Peter Moyer, John Boackle, Kathy Byrne, Pat Sullivan, Maritha Pottenger, and Judy Rimer; Lynne Anderson, Matthew Kidd, Helene Miller, Gail Dunham, Yvonne Gallagher, Debbie Hedenberg, and Bob Brobst; and finally, Gareth Maden, Wirt Gilliam and our Director Davis Bennett.
