    HELP WANTED -
    The Cincinnati Bridge Association is posting a Bridge Center Manager Job.  If you are interested please contact John Meinking at jokingme71@gmail.com or any current Unit Board member. Compensation discussed privately.   JOB DESCRIPTION
    CBA MENTOR PAIRS - Coming May 2 to Northern Kentucky and May 31 to the Cincinnati Bridge Center -
    Experienced players and advancing players (non-life masters for the most part) pair up for a series of games over the Spring and Summer. Many players form partnerships on their own, but for those of you who don’t, we’ll make every effort to pair you up with an appropriate partner. You can read more about the program and sign up online at www.cincybridge.com. There’ll be paper sign-up sheets available at the CBC. 
    For those of you who aren’t able to play in the designated games (or for masochists who want to play even more often), we’ll be selling $10 passes that will allow you and your partner to play together in any game at the CBC. You can purchase passes from Barb Levinson, Mike Lipp, or Bob Fisk.  The first official game in Northern Kentucky is Tuesday May 2 at 10 AM.  The first official game at the CBC is Wednesday, May 31st at 7:00pm. Sign up soon—the earlier the better!  CBA Mentor Program Page (and Sign ups)
