Looking Ahead

Coming in April April is Charity Month

All sanctioned club sessions may be held as Charity games during April. Each session's games alternately support the ACBL Charity Foundation and local charities. Masterpoints are 64% sectional-rated black and include overall awards. Get extra masterpoints this month while supporting worthwhile causes. A win-win!

ACBL-Wide Charity Game Thursday 4/27 We will be participating in the ACBL-Wide Charity Game on Thursday 4/27 at 9:30 AM. For this day only, it will be an OPEN game. Masterpoints will be 82% sectional-rated black with overall awards at the club, district, and national level. Winners will be recognized on the ACBL website and in the Bridge Bulletin. Hand records and analyses are provided and the game supports the ACBL Charity Foundation. We will have a separate 499er section that will not be participating in the charity game but will be playing the same hands.

Raffle!!!

A Raffle Starting April 1, 2017, The Birmingham Duplicate Bridge Club will have a drawing on the last game day of each month. Game Directors will be happy to sell you raffle tickets. The cost is $10.00 a ticket and the monthly prize is a $150 Publix Gift Card. There are approximately 400 members in our club of whom approximately 300 attend games on a regular basis. There will be twelve monthly drawings a year, increasing your chances. Note: There is no limitation on the number of raffle tickets you may purchase each month if you want to increase your chances to win the monthly $150 Publix Gift Card prize. Please support this monthly raffle. It will make our club even stronger and better able to promote educational programs and have ready cash when our facilities require upgrading. The club has been relying on special tournaments to fill in the gaps that slow months bring.

Education Opportunities

 

BEGINNER CLASSES Classes will be offered: Mondays mornings at 9:30 Tuesday evenings at 6:30

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!

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.)
