Zero Tolerance: The Unit 430 Board is concerned that not all players are aware of their responsibilities (both in terms of ethics in play, and also the importance of respect to partner and other players) and would like all members to read this article by Peter Morse, President of Unit 430, concerning Zero Tolerance.

Because of a number of troubling events where player behaviour fell below acceptable levels, some of them referred to in Peter's article, the Board has decided to request our Directors to enforce Zero Tolerance at all Unit 430 sponsored-events. This includes our Sectionals, Future Stars (non-Life Master) Sectionals, 199er Sectionals, Monthly Unit Games and Mentor-Mentee Games. Repeat offenders will be subject to penalties which may involve matchpoint penalties, suspension from participation, or expulsion for serious offenses.

Matchpointer: Here is the Autumn 2015 Matchpointer.

For New/Intermediate Players: The page for
New and Intermediate Players has links to teachers, lessons and games suitable for newer players. Plus helpful articles!

Historical Information Added to the Website: Unit Board President Peter Morse has been busy compiling lists of winners of the various trophies and we now have a history available on the Unit Website, thanks to the further efforts of UB Member John Teschke. This is still a work in progress, but you can access the links under "Trophy Races" at the top of the page, or check here for: past trophy winners, and a guide to when trophy events are played.

The earliest record we have is 1968 for the Phil Wood Trophy. There are still a few pieces of missing data; if you can help complete the information, please reply to one of the Unit Board Members.

Unit Information Added to the Website: We've also added a list of past presidents of the Unit and, if you're interested, minutes for board meetings and annual general meetings going back to 2013.
