Dear Bridge Players, After much consideration and discussion, the EMBA Board has voted unanimously to CANCEL our upcoming April sectional at Watertown, due to the increasing concerns over CoronaVirus (COVID-19), and for the health of our players, directors, caddies and staff.

The Governors decision to bad large gatherings has affirmed this decision. We thank you for your understanding and look forward to seeing you (hopefully) in May, our next scheduled event.

With Gratitude and Regrets, Paul Harris President, and The Entire EMBA Board.
