Elinor was also Operations Manager for Silicon Valley Youth Bridge.
New Partnership Request System
Our recent membership survey discovered that many unit members would play more often if finding a partner were easier.
We have added a new partnership request system to our Partnership Desk to match those looking for partners. Now all we need is for those of you looking for partners or open to playing with new partners to identify yourselves.
It's Time to Vote
The nominating committee has found three candidates for the three two-year terms open on the Board of Directors: Paul Davis, Todd Makler and David Puryear. Voters may select three candidates including write-ins. The winners will form the 2014 Board with the current members: Leslie Altick, Jim Harris, Kevin O’Leary and Jody Williams. Find photos and candidate information on pages 4 and 5 of the November Kibitzer with a ballot and voting instructions.
Beginning Monday, November 10, ballots, envelopes and boxes will be at three locations:the Bridge Center, the Unity Church and the JCC. If members play at other locations, they should plan to either vote at one of these three locations or mail their ballots. Follow the directions on the ballot to vote by mail. All ballots must be received by Wednesday, November 19. The election chair, Roy Robinson, will announce the election results at the Unit Game on Sunday, November 23.
