Beginning April 17 in Lansdale, Penn., Craig Robinson embarked on his journey to visit 100 bridge clubs across the nation in 100 days.
In its 74 year lifetime, no ACBL President has taken on the challenge of personally visiting such a large number of clubs. After receiving requests from hundreds of the ACBL’s 3,200 affiliated bridge clubs, Robinson narrowed down his tour to 100 clubs. The tour will be split in half, with the first leg of the tour ending just as the Summer North American Bridge Championships (NABC) commence July 21 in Toronto, ON. The western tour begins August 10 in Fargo, N.D. after the NABC, and culminates in Vancouver in late September.
“The clubs are the lifeline of the American Contract Bridge League, and where the majority of new members come from,” Robinson said. “This special trip serves as a ‘thank you’ to all the clubs for helping make the ACBL the success we are today.”
