Welcome to the Unit 484 Website!
Unit 484 is affiliated with the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) 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 at two venues, 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!
Those who played at the Dan Voorhies Center on the Wednesday prior remember Bettie as she always was-- cheerful, elegant and genuinely concerned about everyone as well as highly competitive. Her last game she and her team placed second in the GNT Qualifying event. As she was on that day is the way she would want to be remembered.
Bettie's family plans a memorial Celebration of Bettie's Life on the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 29th at the Rogue Valley Country Club in Medford. The bridge community is invited. The event will be at 2:00 PM. Reservations and RSVP's are not necessary. The Friday bridge game is scheduled to begin at 10:00 am so that players may attend both the game and the memorial service.
Bettie will be missed by us all. She lived in her own special style--always a vital part of any event or occasion.
At this time there are no details available concerning pending services.
