    In Memoriam - Nancy Sachs
    On Wednesday afternoon September 3, 2014 Nancy Sachs passed away.  She succumbed to injuries from a tragic fall in her home.  Our sympathies go out to her entire family. Nancy's Obituary.  Nancy's sons have proposed a fund in her honor to support Junior Bridge.  If you would like to contribute, please contact Susan Wisner, Unit Treasurer,

    Nancy has been a pillar of bridge in Cincinnati for many years.  Just a few of her contributions include: Board member & President of CBA, Tournament Chair, Bridge Author (4 Books), Midwest Monitor Editor,  Teacher of uncountable numbers of local players, Director at CBC, Secretary - District 11 board, Recorder for District 11 & Unit 124 (Cincinnati), Emerald Life Master - 9869.09 Master Points, and recipient of the CBA's Jerry Steurnagle Award for exemplary ethics, kindness, and character. 


    Special Pairs Game - Practice for the NAPs and play for a chance to win prizes!  1:00 PM Sunday September 28, 2014 at the CBC.  $10/person.  (Note the originally posted September 21 game was an error - ACBL allows only one extra sanctioned game for this purpose, and that game is Sept 28).  

    Midwest MonitorThe July 2014 Issue is now available for your enjoyment.  This is a very big file (6 MB) so use a high speed connection for best results.  For now on District 11 will offer the electronic version of the Midwest Monitor in lieu of the mailed printed version.  In the future all District 11 members with public e-mails will get a notice from the ACBL with a link for the latest issue of the Monitor.  This will improve communications and lower costs to all Units in the District.  Available past editions of the Monitor are on the District 11 website.  You will need Adobe Reader to open this file.  Thanks to Brad Bartol for bringing us this innovation.
