Collectively we have LOTS of talents at Clear Lake Bridge Club! Did you know John Taylor is an artist?! He shared one of his works with the club (we hear he held back on his true masterpieces),
A few of Nelson's thoughts 25 years after the semi-official start of CLBC:
"We have a great community that still thrives in large part due to the small and large volunteer efforts that work so well.
From the beginning it was all about our volunteers. Rachel Johnston sent her housekeeper once a month to clean the building and celebrated each holdiay with decorations. Directors were volunteers. Growing through the purchase of the building, volunteers did most of the maintenance including roof repairs, toilet stoppages, tree planting and cleaning. Keeping us spoiled are members who do the shopping for snacks, drinks and bridge supplies. Our sense of community is sustained by volunteers who manage an array of regular social events celebrating holidays, special programs and rank advancements. As a thriving center for bridge, we modernized along the way with members installing hardware and software that are state-of-the-art. Through it all, introducing new players with successful teaching and special programs including Mentor/Mentee games and monthly 'Breakfast, Bridge and a Lesson'.
Most of the time, members were not asked...they just jumped in and got the jobs done.
And many thanks for members who served on the Board and managed as President.
When you can't get back to the table and are selecting an online game, please make our Choose Houston Games you priority.
Why? Because when you Choose Houston all the club revenue for the games stay with our Houston Clubs. We hope you feel the way feel: keeping our Houston Clubs financially healthy supports our ongoing bridge community. It is the strength of our local community that sustains tournaments, beginning bridge players/teachers and the cordiality of our bridge friendships developed while playing together at the table.
