Jerry Flemming to serve as ACBL president

-A A +A

Bridge involves a lot of thought and teamwork. Players need to communicate with teammates to determine, based on their cards, whether they should bid to take certain tricks or sit back and defend.

It is also a card game that Los Alamos resident Jerry Flemming has loved since attending college in the mid-‘60s. “I find bridge to be an absolutely fascinating, challenging card game,” he said.

Flemming’s love of the game has taken him far in the bridge world. Starting Jan. 1, he will serve a one-year position as president of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL).

As president, his primary duties will be to preside over the board of directors and their meetings, which are held at each of the three national tournaments held during the course of the year. He will also run a hospitality suite during the tournaments and assign board members to committees.

Becoming president, he said, “is an honor. It’s recognition of the work I’ve done on the board of directors.”

Flemming said he is finishing up his 10th year on the ACBL board of directors. He represents bridge clubs in New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, southern Nevada, the west edge of Texas, half of Wyoming and a “little bit” of Utah.
