This mailing list is announce-only.
For those playing in the Asheville Clubs online BBO game.
Once or twice a month we send out favorable stats of those that have had a good month playing bridge. From time to time we include a little humor and announce winners in certain categories. Several times a month we send out a general news email.
We don't share anything with anybody!

I’ve so enjoyed our virtual games that a complete transition back to clubs may be ...Continue Reading
