Welcome to the Unit 484 Website!

Unit 484 is affiliated with the American Contract Bridge League (ACBLacbl logo small) which fosters the game of bridge throughout North America.  We are a member of District 20 (D-20 ), one of 23 North American districts under the auspices of ACBL.  Unit 484 is a non-profit organization in Jackson County located in Southern Oregon.  The bridge clubs in our unit run ACBL sanctioned games available for players of all levels in competitive yet friendly and nurturing environments.

Bridge games within Unit 484 are located in the Rogue Valley—home to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Britt Festival.  

We have several clubs offering games, excellent bridge instructors, games for players of varying levels and a bridge community of vibrant, interesting players whose goals are to have fun,make friends, improve their bridge, and to bid and make all their slams!

  Announcements

 More sad news, I'm afraid.  This note from Kemble Yates:

 
The southern Oregon bridge community lost a titan last week.  Scott Foster, a quiet gentleman with extraordinary bridge prowess, succumbed to colon cancer.  Scott has been part of the Unit 484 scene since the early 1970s.  He quickly established himself as one of the best players in the valley, and over his life, he accumulated almost 7000 masterpoints.  Scott won multiple regional pairs and teams events, and twice his team represented the open flight of District 20 at the nationals in the Grand National Teams.  All of Scott's partners will attest to his incredible calm at the bridge table.  He rarely even acknowledged his partner's mistakes, let alone felt the need to point out those errors.  Few people actually got to know Scott well -- he was quiet and somewhat reserved.  But for those of us who did, he was a treasure.  He had a rich sense of humor, and his analysis of bridge (and his many other interests) was deep and insightful.  Scott had a very successful career leading the Jackson County Housing Authority, retiring just last year at the ripe age of 80.  Scott is survived by his widow, Julie Foster.

We will have short remembrance hour after the Saturday Unit Sectional on March 24.  Memorial Services are planned sometime in April.  I will let you know.
