Advance your clocks forward this Saturday night (technically, Sunday morning 2am) for the daylight savings program. To help with the time change, remember the old saying, "Spring Forward, Fall Back."
Welcome to March. We have a Unit Game at Redwood Bridge Club on Wed. March 12th and at Hayward Easybridge on Thursday, March 27th. Please see our Calendar for details.
Our March Table Talk is available. It includes the President's message, San Felipe and Hayward EasyBridge! columns, a Light Overcalls article and a South County Unit News article. Enjoy!

About Unit 500
Unit 500 is part of the ACBL (the American Contract Bridge League) and represents Southern Alameda County. Unit 500 is also within District 21 (Northern California, U.S.A) of the ACBL. District 21 is part of the Western Conference (Districts 17, 21 and 22), the publisher of the monthly Forum newletter. Southern Alameda County has ACBL duplicate bridge club games, a South County Sectional in August, local Unit tournaments and many special events. There are nearby Sectional and Regional tournaments too (click on "Tournaments"). There are local duplicate games ("Bridge Clubs" menu) for players of all abilities from novice to expert, and bridge lessons "Learn" menu).
There are Sectional Tournaments at Clubs (STaC Games) three times a year in May, August and December. If you play in these games, please check the web site to see how you "stack up" with all the other hundreds of people who played. The exact dates can be found on the ACBL Web Site STaC Calendar and they will be advertised on this web site when it's time.
Did you notice our District 21, 1,000+ Master Point list... and are you on it? How about our Unit 500 annual master point list? These can both be reached by clicking on the "Master Points List", under District 21 on the right side of the our Unit 500 home page.
To see special events (i.e. higher rated games that pay more master points) please see the above "Upcoming Special Events", "Upcoming Unit Games" or our Special Event "Calendar".
All duplicate clubs in our unit have sanctioned ACBL games with web sites where game results can be viewed on-line.
