Once per month, Unit 551 holds its Unit Game. We hold Unit games at the Knight of Columbus hall in Glendora. The address is 2024 Rte 66, Glendora.
A Unit game is just like a club game, but it pays better master points.
Game time will be 11:00 a.m. We do not serve lunch, but there are always plentiful snacks available. Coffee is free, and sodas and water are available for a nominal charge.
The entry fee for Unit games is $7 per person, except when the game is a STaC, in which case it is $8.
The Unit's Board of Directors meets before each game at 10:00 a.m. Anyone is welcome to sit in and listen, and Unit members are entitled to speak on the various issues which are discussed. Do you have a suggestion? Or, perhaps, a complaint? This is the forum where you may be heard!
Directions to the Unit game site:
From the 210 Freeway: Exit at Lone Hill. Turn north on Lone Hill.

La Fetra will be hosting the Longest Day event once again this year. The actual solstice falls on Saturday, June 20, which is when we would normally hold our Unit game. We're going to move the Unit game to June 13, a week early - and hold Longest Day sessions at the Knights of Columbus hall in Glendora. Tentative game times are 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Stay tuned to this station for more information.
Due to the COVID-19 mess, our Unit game (along with all the other games) has been suspended. The My 16 gane us iffy, We won't know about the April game until the Knights of Columbus authorities inform us that the Glendora hall is open again.
Our joint Sectional at the end of May has been cancelled. We are looking at rescheduling it for perhaps September or October. With the reduced staff at ACBL headquarters, getting anything along these lines accomplished is not going to be a fast, easy process.
The Unit Game results are also available via ACBL Live-for-Clubs.
