ACBL to move North American headquarters
These two photos should be of interest to bridge players (click to enlarge). About one year ago, the American Contract Bridge League sold its office complex near the airport in Memphis, and the search began.
This building in Southaven MS, about 10 miles from our present location, has been chosen to be our new headquarters. The Mississippi Governor will make an announcement this Friday about what they are calling "an exciting economic development." I'll have to be there with (unfortunately) a tie and jacket.
I grabbed my point-and-shoot camera about a month ago, and took a short trip. These photos give bridge players an advanced sneak peek.
The ACBL serves 160,000 members in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Bermuda. There are also a few bridge clubs overseas in various locations, as well.
Here's a shot of the old building in Memphis near the airport:
