REMINDER

Please remember that many of our players are “scensitive” to strong fragrances. BDBC is officially a “No Fragrance” facility, so resolve to abstain from wearing fragrance when you play bridge. Thank you.

MAY IS GRASS ROOTS FUNd MONTH

All sanctioned games in May can be held as Grass Roots FUNd Games. Funds raised in OUR club will be returned annually to OUR district to help fund North American Pairs (NAP) and Grand National Teams (GNT) in NABC events. Masterpoints will be 70% sectional rated black and each game will have overall awards. Who knows, you may be helping to fund your own NABC participation as a district NAP or GNT winner!

NO MONDAY 0-5 GAME ON MEMORIAL DAY

Due to the holiday, Director Mike DeVivo has cancelled this game, but will resume the following week on June 1. Any 0-5 players who are able to play on Memorial Day are encouraged to come at 12:30 and play in Director Ann Richmond’s 0-99 game.  For more information or for help getting a partner, please contact Ann at dannwest@bellsouth.net. And see you back at the 0-5 game with Mike on June1!

TUESDAY EVENING GAME IS CANCELLED

 

Due to a lack of response, the Tuesday evening game has been cancelled for the time being. The club would like to thank everyone who has supported this game, including directors Dennis Luft and Sandy Smith, along with the members who came out regularly to play in this game.

THIS Saturday, May 30th, the NO 2 LM GAME is on! With Hamburger/Hot Dog cookout!

The next scheduled No2LM Game (No Two Life Master) will be this Saturday, May 30 at 10am.  Clay will direct, and give a BLT at 9:30am, cook hamburgers and hotdogs.  This will be a grass roots fund game, extra points for $7. Be sure to begin setting up a partnership now. It’s going to be a great game!  

THE LONGEST DAY(S)

Our LONGEST DAY charity event will take place Sunday June 21 AND Monday June 22. On these TWO DAYS we will play bridge to benefit The Alzheimer's Association. Make your plans to play ALL day long! This will be our first time to play for TWO DAYS for this great cause. A schedule of games/events is attached and posted at the club. Please sign up to play in all "extra"/non-regularly scheduled games. Memory cards will also be on sale beginning this week for $5 each in memory or honor of those struggling with this debilitating disease. All other games the week of 5/22 will be charity games in support of Alzheimer's as well.

THE NEXT STEP: MONDAY MORNING GAME FOR BEGINNERS

A new bridge game for players with less than 5 master points will start on Monday, January 5 from 9:30 until 11:30 AM. Mike DeVivo will direct the game which will start with a brief lesson followed by informal supervised play.  Players will be allowed to review notes and ask questions during the auction and play of the hand.  This game is ideally suited for graduates of beginning bridge classes who have very limited or no playing experience at the club.  For more information or to make a referral, contact Mike DeVivo at devivo@uab.edu.
