UNIT Election Game/Dinner

On Saturday, January 13th, the annual UNIT 532 election dinner and game will be held in its entirety here at BA II!  The game will be FREE for all UNIT 532 members or for those that wish to sign up on that day!  The dinner will be a potluck so we're asking that each of you sign up (on the UNIT Bulletin Board) to bring an entree, apetizer, salad or dessert.  Dinner will start at 6 pm with a 2 section pairs game to follow at 7 pm.  Hope you'll all be able to join us!!!!

Bob Gruber's Bits and Pieces

Slow Bidding

Last month (October 2017), I used Santa Barbara’s Slow Play e‑mail as the major portion of this column.  In that e‑mail, “slow play” was used as an overarching term for the combined bidding and play of the hand.  This month I’d like to look at the bidding portion of a hand with some thoughts on how you might speed up that part of your game.  For most readers, these tips will be a refresher of your current practices, but there may be a new item or two.
