ACBL District 7 is now requesting nominations for the District 7 Goodwill Committee from each Unit. The Goodwill Committee is comprised of individuals who are recognized and honored for making the game of bridge more enjoyable for everyone through their actions, which in some cases is by volunteering, teaching, mentoring or just helping others. It is strictly an honorary committee. Each honoree is given a Goodwill pin and is recognized at a Goodwill dinner at the Greenville Regional. The honoree does not have to attend the dinner.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!!!
The DBAA or Duplicate Bridge Association of Atlanta is the local name for Unit 253 of the ACBL. Unit 253 is comprised of Cherokee, Cobb, DeKalb, Forsyth, Fulton and Gwinnett counties. The Association is granted some rights and responsibilities from the ACBL, but the primary focus is to promote bridge in the metropolitan Atlanta area. In that roll, the DBAA organizes, promotes, develops, and manages many different bridge activities to benefit the area players and to encourage new players to join our ranks.
The organization is funded by tournament receipts and by a small percentage of our members’ dues. We are always seeking volunteers to help us with this programming. Please email: President@DBAA.us, if you are willing to help.
