This week is STaC WEEK

We will be participating in STaC (Sectional Tournament at Clubs) Week Dec. 15-21 with Districts 7 and 10. Start lining up your partners to win Silver points just like you're at a sectional tournament without leaving home. Strats for Open games are as follows: A=2000+, B=750-2000, C=0-750 by higher player, NOT average MPs. Minimum of 5 tables required for Open games to be eligible for overall awards. The fee is only $7.50, less than a tournament entry. It’s a great deal!

 
Education Opportunities

NEW CLASS: HAND DISCUSSION

Have you ever wanted to talk about a hand right after you played it?  Did we bid it right, get to the maximum/best contract, make the right lead, defend well, can we make the contract and how? If so, then we have the class for you. A Hand Discussion class is beginning on Tuesday, January 6, 9:30 AM-11:30 AM.  This 8 week class is targeted to advancing beginner/intermediate players and will consist of 8 hands per week (each one progressively more difficult) which you'll play and then turn face up on the table for all to see and discuss bidding, leads, play, and defense.  Each class is $10 and you can sign up in the notebook on the education counter. If you have any questions, please contact teacher Sandy at 602-7823 or smwvs@bellsouth.net.
