Help our players!

Many people have serious, and even life threatening, allergic reactions to scented lotions, perfumes, colognes and other scents. The CCBA and club owners seek your cooperation to avoid these situations by coming to all bridge events "scent-free."

Please help us by abiding to our new policy. Thank you for your consideration.
