    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!

Partnerships:

SLO (Monday 12:30 & Friday 12:30):

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

Contact Don    dald10@charter.net

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.
