Unit Directory

The on-line Unit Directory has been re-added to this website.  In January the ACBL required that the Unit provide a method for members to 'opt out' of having their information shown in any directory, either on-line or in print.  To that end, the Unit has provided a page where members of Unit 174 can indicate they do not want their addess, phone number(s), and/or email address to show up in the directory. 

To access either page, click MyUnit174 on the far right of the above menu. If you have not previously registered, you will need to register using your ACBL # and a password of your choosing. 

The Unit intends to publish a print directory in the near future.  If you do not want your information shown in the print directory, please update your privacy options on-liine or contact Bill Riley at

UNIT 174 Board of Directors Club Connection Program

Bill Riley, Nancy Strohmer, Sue Williams, and John Caudill

The Board continued our program to connect with our Unit members and traveled to Sugar Land. The Sugar Land DBC has a well organized game at 9 AM every Tuesday morning at the Sugar Land Community Center.

Three of the board members (Nancy Strohmer, John Caudill and Bill Riley) and 2 spouses, Hans Strohmer and Nancy Riley, played bridge on June 2. There were 13 tables with pre-dealt hands and hand records at the end. All had fun and good bridge.
