Welcome to Unit 498's Website

                                                           The games will begin at 12:15 on Saturday, July 18, 2020.   

                                                           There will be a 499er limited game and an Open game.


                                                               Signups will be open 2 hours before the start time.

                                                                                            Fee is $6.00. 


June 21, the longest day of the year, has come and gone, but the 2020 Alzheimer’s Association collaboration with ACBL ends this session on July 31.   Our local committee has generated a few ways for how to join the Unit 498 effort before the 2020 campaign closes. 


For a $100 donation, you can choose an Expert bridge player who will review your convention card, play a session with you at a BBO/ACBL table, and provide a review of your bidding and play with tips on how to improve your game.  Donors can suggest a local star with whom they’d like to play.  Fred Chasalow, Marcus Ballinger, and Cheryl Haines have volunteered to mentor, and just like last year, many experts will be willing to participate.


For a $200/table donation, four players ($50 each) can join a teaching table on BBO and be given a lesson with pre-dealt hands to play.  Raad Bunni and Mark Sorenson have volunteered to teach the play lessons.


For a $50 donation, you can play at a regular BBO/ACBL game with a teacher or mentor and receive constructive comments and tips on your bidding and play after the game.  Mark Sorenson and Jenny Kuhn have already volunteered to mentor.  We can assign a partner for you, and we can try to line up the special player you request!


These are wonderfully feel-good opportunities to be part of a great cause and improve your bridge skills and experiences.  Please know that all donations make a difference, and you don’t have to play to participate!


Please DO NOT reply to this email.


Reply to sorensonmark717@gmail.com with your request to play 1) and learn with an expert 2) at a teaching table for four with  a lesson and  supervised play of hands, or 3) a BBO game with a mentor. You will pay the table fee on BBO for yourself and your partner.  You and your partner can decide on the play date, but please send your donation by 7/31.


You can view the list of 2020 contributors and send your donation before July 31 at:



If you prefer, you can mail your donation with the attached form. 

We are grateful for your joining the effort and the chance for us to connect again, albeit virtually.

Thank you kindly, Your Unit 498 Longest Day Committee
