Our good friend, James J. Karius passed away peacefully surrounded by the love of his family at home on Friday, January 20th at the age of 85. We of Unit222 are all the poorer for his loss. Jim will be missed for his love of his family and friends, his witty conversation, and his wonderful sense of humor. It is fair to say he will be missed by everyone who knew him. Rest easy, Jim. Visitation will be held on Friday, January 27, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. until the time of the 3:00 p.m. memorial service at the Randle-Dable-Brisk Funeral Home, 1110 S. Grand Avenue, Waukesha. Memorials in Jimís name are appreciated to the charity of the donorís choice. http://www.randledablefuneralhome.com/obituaries/James-Karius/#!/Obituary

No pre-sign up is required. The topic will be discussed and then prepared hands will be bid and played. On 1/25 and 1/27 we'll bid and play hands reviewing responses to when partner opens 1NT.

The Unit 222 Annual Meeting will have many changes this year. The Progressive Finals will be held on Saturday, March 4th (please note the day change as usually held on a Sunday)at The North Shore Event Center (formally The Radisson Hotel), 7065 N. Port Washington Road. This year players will have the option to play in one or both sessions. The morning session will start at 9:30AM and the afternoon session will start at 2PM. The cost per session is $8 and instead of a buffet lunch, a Unit subsidized box lunch will be offered at a cost of $5 to bridge players. Players may also bring their own lunch or run to a nearby restaurant to eat before the annual meeting. The annual meeting will start around 1PM. The format will be different this year; the morning and the afternoon progressive finals sessions both will be pair sessions. There will not be a team event in the afternoon. Qualifying for the morning pair session will be held February 13-18 and qualifying for the afternoon session will be February 27-March 3. Even though both sessions are pair sessions, each one has a separate qualifying period. As always, there will be side games for both sessions for those people that did not qualify for 1 or both sessions. Payment for bridge will be paid on the day of the Progressive Finals on Saturday, March 4th. See you on March 4th. John Pereles Unit 222 President
