No Illini Regional this year

ACBL has cancelled all tournaments through July, so our annual Memorial Day regional is off for the second straight year.

We're all eager to get back to face-to-face play at tournaments and especially at our local club. Your Ginger Creek directors are working to make this happen as soon as possible. Until then, we hope you're enjoying our online games and free classes. 

A big Thank you! to everyone who has supported Bridge at Ginger Creek by playing in these games the past year.
