Welcome Summer!

The summer bridge season got off to a roaring start at the end of May.   I wish to send out HUGE thanks to Kathy Pollock and Joyce Greenspan for a wonderful and successful job on the Future Stars Sectional (non-life master sectional) that was held May 30 and 31.  With a count of 51 tables for the two day event, many silver points were awarded. A special thanks to all who helped out to make this happen.

The Unit has a full slate of events for this summer season. Highlights here but look for full information on this web site.

Welcome to the Western New York Unit 116 website.  Our unit of over 450 dedicated bridge players is part of the American Contract Bridge League’s District Five.  Geographically, we encompass the counties of Erie and Niagara, at the eastern end of Lake Erie and western end of Lake Ontario, in New York State.  We often have players from across the Canadian border playing at our clubs.

Our goal is to promote bridge and support local bridge clubs.   We have six open, active clubs. We host three sectionals each year – January, April/May, and September – as well as a Non-Life Master sectional in the summer.  The District Five Regional is held at the end of October and famously titled “Spooktacular”.  Numerous unit games are held throughout the year.

We publish a bi-monthly newsletter, Bridge Buff, for and about its members.  It regularly includes extensive interviews with several members, an interesting bridge hands and analysis, and perhaps a good recipe enjoyed at a Unit game.

The "Bridge Buff" issues were retrieved (thank you  Kathy Pollock  and Alex Kowal) starting with  issues back in the past. You can read old and current issues to see where we were and where we are going as a bridge community. There was a gap in publishing from March to October 2007, when the bridge community was torn apart by controversy and the Buff was on hold.
Help preserve the bridge history of Unit 116 by downloading the files and saving them - you will never know when and who from the future generations will read them.
