April 18--Charity Swiss Team Results

The Unit's first online Swiss teams was a great success.  Twenty-Six teams played and the event went off without any issues.  Barbara Greenspan chaired the Swiss teams and was able to get everything to work perfectly. Thanks, Barbara.

Stan Dub(Shaker Heights), a brand new Unit board member, captained the winning team. Besides Stan, the team was Michael Drozhinskiy(Solon) and Philip and Muriel Altus(Tampa, FL).

You can see all the results HERE.
