Special Games this week

Tues 9/16 AM 750 Game International Fund Game (card fee $7)

Tues 9/16 Aft Open Game International Fund Game (card fee $7)

Wed 9/17 Noon Open Game International Fund Game (card fee $7)

Thurs 9/18 AM 299er Game International Fund Game (card fee $7)

MENTOR MENTEE PROGRAM continues Thursday afternoon at NEW time.

To minimize conflicts with previous games, the Mentor-Mentee game will start at 1:15  

 

Each pair will consist of an experienced player (generally 500+ master points) and a less experienced player (generally under 500 master points), so there is no competitive advantage for any pair.   This is a great time for aspiring players to play in an unlimited master point game but with an experienced partner from whom they can pick up good tips along the way. Club members wanting to participate in this program (as either a mentor or a mentee) may contact Dennis directly by email at wbryant5276@charter.net or at 661-2369.   Participants may arrange their own partnerships if they wish.  Others will be matched up with an appropriate Mentor or Mentee.   Sign up forms will also be available at all club games and should be turned in to the game director, or placed in the blue box. PLEASE CONSIDER PARTICIPATING AS A MENTOR FOR A REWARDING TEACHING EXPERIENCE, OR AS A MENTEE FOR A VALUABLE LEARNING EXPERIENCE. EITHER WAY, IT’S A WIN-WIN!

 

 

 

THE MENTAL ASPECTS OF BRIDGE: TAUGHT BY EMILY HARRELL

How do your thoughts and feelings affect performance at the bridge table?  We are pleased to announce that Emily Harrell will be teaching a FREE 4-week series, beginning Monday, September 15 at 2pm (or as soon as the Monday AM Open game ends) and will last 30-40 minutes. Learn how to improve your bridge game by developing focus, managing mistakes, controlling frustration and more. Bring your lunch and join us for this excellent Lunch and Learn series. (This class is geared to intermediate and advanced players.)

New tuesday evening games begin TODAY!!

Director Dennis Luft would like to cordially invite you to attend the kickoff event of the NEW BDBC TUESDAY EVENING GAME tonight, Tuesday, September 16. Two games will be offered on Tuesday evenings, with the following schedule for each:

 

A 299er Game will begin at 6:00 pm and end no later than 9:30 p.m.

An Open Game will begin at 6:30 pm and end no later than 10:00 p.m.

 

Great food will be served around 6:10 or 6:15. (Those already playing in the 299er Game can help themselves after they complete the first round of their game.)  Open Game players can help themselves before their game starts. There will be NO CHARGE for the delicious goodies. Thank you, BDBC, for treating us!

 

The 299er Game will be a traditional stratified game. The Open Game will be handicapped in a manner similar to what was used for the Open section of the Tail Gate Party. Pairs can score master points based on their raw score and also based on their score with the handicap included. A graded handicap will be employed (more handicap added to the raw scores of the pairs with fewer combined master points, less to the intermediate pairs, and none to the highest pairs, etc., a great way to level the playing field). Handicapped games are not stratified because of this feature. 

Great food, great bridge, and hanging out with Dennis…can’t get much better than that! Mark your calendars now, folks, for the NEW evening game on September 16!

 
8 is Enough Team Game for Sept

8 is Enough Team Game For September

Our monthly team game is on Thursday September 25 at 6:30 p.m. and will be an International Fund Game ($7 card fee). Each team may have no more than 8 points:   A players (2000+ MPs) count as 3 points, B players (LM-2000 MPs) count as 2 points, and C players (NLMs) count as 1 point.  Team masterpoints will be averaged for stratification purposes.   This is a fun, relaxed game with a level playing field.   If you need help putting a team together, let director Sandy know at 602-7823 or smwvs@bellsouth.net.   A FREE play will be given away if we have 6 or more teams.
