ABSENTEE VOTING INSTRUCTIONS
Place a check mark or "X" on the line next to the name of the nominee for whom you wish to vote.
Vote for no more than three. No more than one vote per nominee. Ballots with more than three
selections will be disqualified.
Once you have made your selections, fold your ballot and place it in a small envelope and seal it.
Place the small envelope in a larger envelope and seal it. Place your ACBL number on the back flap
of the larger envelope and sign your name. Once received, your name will be checked off the unit
roster as having voted. The outer envelope will be discarded and your completed ballot will be
added to the ballot box.
You may give your ballot to Pat Lombardi, OR mail it to her at: 4500 Bob Billings Parkway, #305,
Lawrence, KS 66049, OR you may bring it to the Election Game on July 22, 2017.
Mailed-in ballots must be received by July 21, 2017.
Ballots received in the mail after this deadline shall not be counted. No more
than one ballot may be sent in the same envelope. If multiple ballots are in one envelope
and one of the ACBL numbers submitted is declared unqualified all ballots will be invalid
because there would be no way to determine which ballot belongs to the disqualified
voter. A normal disqualification would be a member who was not current with ACBL
dues on the date the roster for verification of voters is requested.
BRIEF BIOS SUBMITTED BY THE CANDIDATES
DAVE CHIPMAN--No bio submitted
Introduced to bridge by college friends in 1966, I have played duplicate since the late 70s. I am a director and a bronze life master, working toward the silver level. After a 3-year absence from the game, I am so very glad to be playing again. I currently live in Parkville MO, but still belong to Unit 234. Besides playing bridge,I enjoy giving piano lessons, singing, and - best of all - spending time with my 3 children and 5 grandchildren. I play in the Leavenworth and Lawrence games as much as I can. As a retired teacher and instructional program administrator, I would love to share my creativity and organizational skills as a member of the board.

Soon after I retired I went to renew my driver's license and I discovered the Kaw Valley Bridge Club next door. My mother had taught her children to play bridge when we were in Junior High and we played as much as we could over the years. But I had never played duplicate. Chris encouraged me to come to the Thursday lessons and before long I was addicted. I have been to lots of local tournaments and have traveled to a few as well: Omaha, Des Moines, Gatlinburg, Colorado Springs, Nationals in Reno and KC... I am also addicted to quilting. In addition to family and travel, that fills my life these days.
