Plans for the next Birmingham Regional have begun!!

Oh, Oh, Oh, it’s Magic! Please Help Us Advertise Our 2020 Regional

Believe it or not, we are already making plans for the Magic City Regional during

the week of March 2-8, 2020, and you can help us spread the word. When you

go to a tournament, wear a button advertising our event, and take business cards

to give to people that you meet from other clubs. The cards and buttons are

located on the shelf that holds the pencil sharpener and timer. We have plenty of

cards to distribute and about 50 buttons for tournament-goers. In addition, let co-

chairs Martha Chitwood or Beth Stewart know if you are heading to a tournament

that will allow us to hang our banner. We’d love for you to take it.

Thanks for your help. It’s going to be a magical event!

Martha and Beth

Please arrive early!

Please arrive 15 minutes before game time to allow our directors enough time to effectively plan the layout so that we may begin playing at the scheduled hour. (If we begin on time, then we can finish in a timely manner.) Thank you!

ICE Machine

Our ice machine is a delicate instrument for our pleasure. However we need to treat it properly. Please do not ever pour drinks, coffee or anything other than water and ice down the drain there! A new machine will cost us all $4000.

HOSTS NEEDED

We need YOU as a host at your favorite game.  All games are in need of hosts, and the respective directors would appreciate having you on the host schedule.  Check with the directors of the games in which you are interested in hosting, and let them know you want to volunteer.  (Game hosts need to arrive a little earlier and be prepared to play with a person they have not met or played with before. Hosts are allowed a free play, and in the event a host is not needed that day the free game may be applied later.)
