As impossible as it seems summer is almost over with schools back in session and many activities starting a new season. Fall is on the horizon and now is the time to put some special games on your calendars. On Saturday August 27 our unit game, held at the Georgia Taylor Rec Center in Winston-Salem, is a STaC game with special point levels. This game is close enough to get to easily. August 30 -September 6 there is a Regional Tournament in Atlanta, Ga. As always go to www.ACBL.org for full details. If you plan to go, it’s time to make hotel reservations.
