Want to teach bridge through OLLI?

OLLI (Osher Lifelong Learning Institute) provides a way for people who have something to teach to connect with people who want to learn.

Classes run for eight weeks, and there are three sets of classes a year. Classes are held in one of the six OLLI locations around Denver.

Support for OLLI classes from the ACBL includes materials and a small stipend.

For more information about OLLI, go to http://universitycollege.du.edu/olli/. For more information about the ACBL support, go tobhttp://www.acbl.org/teach/life-long-learning/.

Welcome to the Denver Unit web site!


Message from Margaret Devere, Unit 361 President:

August 10 update

July 2017 sectional: table count: 385, down from 481 in 2016 and 507.6 in 2015.

July 2017 sectional: financial report: Profit of $2020.26, up from $1735.90 in 2016.

--------------------------

It's July 10, the day after our July sectional. I don't have the table count yet, or the financial report, but I will post both as soon as they're available. Thanks to all the board members and volunteers who helped put this on, and special thanks to all the kind souls who staffed the Bridge Help Desk.

The final financial report from the regional is in, and we made approximately $4000. This is in line with our projections. YTD we are keeping pretty close to our budget.

A couple of things to note: 1) We now have an online directory, thanks to Rob Vetter. More info below, or click here to have a look. 2) The fall 299er tournament will be held on September 30-October 1 at Denver Metro Bridge Studio. Click here for more info.

Thass all folks :)

Online Directory

The Denver unit now has an online directory! Click here, enter your ACBL number and email address, and Bob's your uncle. :)

Thanks to Rob Vetter, who put this together for us with Sheryl Siegel's able assistance.

A couple of things to know:

  • We get the data directly from the ACBL, and we'll update it monthly or so. If your data is wrong, correct it in the ACBL database and it will be updated in due course.
  • If you have told the ACBL not to share your data, you will not appear in this list.
  • If you don't have an email address, you will not appear in this list.
  • If you're not a member of Unit 361 but you have a valid reason to be in our directory, we can do that. Just let us know -- send an email to the Membership chair.
  • If for some reason you want the data in this list to be different from your ACBL data, we can do that (there's an overwrite function). Just let us know -- send an email to the Membership chair.
  • If you don't want to be in this list at all, we can do that too:) Send an email to the Membership chair.
  • On certain smartphones using certain browsers, you can send an email directly from the email address in the list (how cool is that?).

P.S. I can't resist adding this. Do you know the origin of the phrase "and Bob's your uncle"? The common belief is that British Prime Minister Robert Cecil was a prime practitioner of nepotism, so if Bob was your uncle, you were in like Flynn. (Do you know the origin of the phrase "in like Flynn"?)
