    Welcome to the home page for Unit 540. Event Locations

The purpose is to keep any and all bridge players in San Luis Obispo County informed about what's happening and where, to provide a guide for any travelers passing through our small piece of heaven to any of the many games and great hospitality our area is so famous for, and lastly just 'cause it needed to be done!

    Please enjoy! 

Save this date: Wednesday, June 21 (The Longest Day)

The Rank Advancement Brochure is available on 'the Board' page 
The brochure lists all of those who have achieved the next ACBL rank.  For those on their way to becoming Life Masters, we acknowledge your perseverance and determination to improve your player skills.  For those who are already at the Life Master level and are reaching beyond, we applaud your continued growth and encourage you to share your expertise.  Our unit is stronger for your efforts.  

Thanks for supporting our games and our educational efforts.  We look forward to seeing your achievement in 2017.  





Please be certain to email Don Alderman directly for all partnership requests for SLO.  He gets your email immediately on his "smart phone."

Don has two email addresses and they both go to his phone (click below):


He has the group email on his phone and can send your partnership request out immediately.  This could be especially beneficial if it is "last minute."

When you need a partner and see the group email partner request, if you click on reply or the reverse arrow, no one will see your reply.  You must compose a new email or just call the requestor.

The body of the email needs to include how you wish to be contacted (email, phone, telegraph).  It is desirable to add your mp total or special conventions you like to play.  That way Don merely copies and pastes this information into the group email partner request.

Please do not omit the contact info so that Don does not have to hunt for that information in a previous email or find your email in the sender's email drop down.  It wastes his time and he may have to send you an email asking for more information, thus causing delay.

5 Cities:

Any 5 Cities Club partnership requests need to go to Bettye Landino at



Our Monthly Unit game is the 2nd Saturday of each month. The next unit game will be on May 13th 12:30pm at SLO Senior Center.

Very Important:

The ACBL has instituted a new privacy policy and our unit has adapted it to our own electronic and hard copy distributions, email, game results and partnership searches. In order to be included in any distributions generated from the unit you must fill-out, sign and return this form to your club. For those that play at multiple clubs, it is only necessary to return it to one club. The following is a pdf copy that you can print out bring with you!
