To Whom It May Concern:
We are writing to you as long time Mah Jongg enthusiasts. We have been playing Mah Jongg since we started dating nearly ten years ago. Now that we have been married for almost five years and work at the same school, we would like to bring this game to our students. We are hoping to create a Mah Jongg club at the High School of Commerce in Springfield, Massachusetts. As a history teacher and the school librarian, we have come to know many of the students and we know that many of them would be interested in learning to play Mah Jongg. We would like to start a Mah Jongg club as an after school activity to help broaden the horizons of our students and introduce them to a great past time that they can take with them into the future. We feel that a game like Mah Jongg can benefit the students in many ways. It helps promote logic, critical thinking, and creates a positive social environment. We hope to not just teach the students how to play Mah Jongg but also introduce them to some of the historical and cultural parts of the game as well.
Our school is an urban school that is struggling to meet the needs of its students. The community struggles with violence, drugs, and gangs. We would like to provide a positive after school activity for students to participate in. Our district has been hurt by budget cuts and we have been told that there will not be any funding available for extracurricular clubs this year. We will not get paid for running this club, but we would still like to create it anyway. We are hoping that your organization would be willing to donate cards, tiles, etc. to help get our club started. We understand that times are tough for every one, but any help would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Special Notes (March 27, 2013).
Dear Sirs:
I am emailing from a London-based independent television production company called Wag TV. We produce a series for the Discovery Channel called How Do They Do It?, which looks at the manufacture of some of the world's most amazing products. We are currently producing our 10th series.
One of the stories we are filming is on the manufacture of Mahjong sets. We have a crew out in China at the moment filming this, but we would like to include a few shots of Mahjong being played elsewhere in the world as well. As it happens we have a crew due to film in the USA (around Boston and then up into Maine) in about two weeks' time, and I was wondering if you might be able to recommend any local Mahjong tournaments, clubs or societies in the region who might be willing to play a game on camera.
Below is a little more information about the show:
How Do They Do It? is one of the world's most popular technology magazine shows and is broadcast across the world to over 1.25 billion Discovery Channel subscribers. In previous series we have filmed stories about how NASA train astronauts, how 'time' is measured, how nuclear power works, how sea sponges are collected, how Bentleys are made, and how money is printed. We have also filmed everything from piano production with Steinway to silver mining in Mexico. More information about How Do They Do It? can be found here: http://science.discovery.com/tv/how-do-they-do-it/
Thank you for your time and I hope this is of interest. If you would like any more information please do not hesitate to contact me.
Many thanks, www.wagtv.com
On Sunday April 7th 2013, USAMJClub went to City Of Gloucester MA, where a special event took place. Thanks to our nice members and friends Loie et al, British TV crew could take footages of their games at Loie's lovely home in Gloucester. They worked for more than three hours (10:30AM to 1:30PM) and filmed long records including personal close-ups and eight special interviews when director David asked questions such as: why do you think Mahjongg is so popular in the whole world; why do you like to play Mahjong, etc...
General filming of the games went on even better, there were two tables and many stand-by players at site. Fans behaved well; no fighting, cheating, or smacking of tiles...:-) It might take more than 6 months before all comes down to final editing and broadcasts on Discovery Channel "how do they do it?", about Mahjongg tiles manufacture story.
Even when it was a short notice USA MAHJONGG CLUB tried very hard and successfully mobilized Mahjong fans across the region. In fact, we got unbelievable responses from as far as New York, Vermont, Florida, Missouri... Mostly positive; such as Wright Patterson groups arguing that their style was the eldest in the US, not Joker/Jewish game. Of course, as usual, there were jealous reactions, even sabotages; arguing all over the places, saying jewish players were addicted; or their ways were the only real thing, not USA MAHJONGG CLUB, etc..
No matter what, we worked and everything turns out well. We showed our USA MAHJONGG CLUB 2013 Mahjong Card with total-balance hands on it, players do not get frustrated and angry, and will not try to cheat.., when they use our healthy hands.
We'll let you know as soon as we get notice about Discovery Channel broadcast time!
The "MAHJONGG (traditional Bone-On-Bammboo sets)" episode was aired first time on US Science Channel -- Discover/National Geographic Network -- January 16 & 23, 2014

To Whom It May Concern:
We at the Worcester Art Museum are in the midst of planning our Family Day set for Sunday, November 8, 2009. This year's theme is entitled East Meets West that will be focusing on Asian culture and its influence on Western society.
I wondered if there were any mahjong clubs or players in the Worcester area that would be interested in teaching mahjong to visitors that day. The event would be held at the Worcester Art Museum, in Worcester, MA from 1:00p-4:30p. Any resources or contacts would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to email me back or contact my colleague, Katrina Assistant Director of Education at 508.799.4406 ext. 3059.

Hello, I'm a reporter who covers Judaism for Religion News Service, the national, non-sectarian newswire. I've read about resurgences of mahjong among young Jewish people who have nostalgic memories of their grandmothers' and mothers' games. I'm based near Boston and wonder if there are any groups or clubs that play regularly that I might contact to interview for this article, or if there is any information you can provide me about this trend and how it manifests itself. Thank you, Holly Lebowitz Rossi Reporter, Religion News Service 781-777-1422HollyRNS@aol.com
