NEW 199er GAME STARTS THURSDAY JULY 2nd AT 9:30am
Come join your friends on July 2nd for the newest game on our schedule.  We have heard from a number of our 99ers that you would like another opportunity to play. We decided on a 199er because a few of you are getting close to graduating and it fills the need for those of you who feel you are not quite ready for a 499er or 749er.
 
This game will be attractive to our "morning people" and we should be finished about 12:45. Your afternoons are still open to you for other activities.
 
To kick-off your new game we will have a lunch after the game. Time for FUN, FELLOWSHIP and of course, FOOD. Bonnie is cooking so it should be good.
 
Your Club needs YOU to make this new game a success. Remember that we are not just members, we are owners of the BDBC.  I will try my best to make your new game a very enjoyable, positive experience. ( All my blonde jokes aside)
 
  SPECIAL BONUS OFFER!!!!
 
OPENING GAME: TWO for ONE.   YOU and YOUR PARTNER for ONLY $6   YEAH!!!!
 
Bonnie, your blonde director

NEXT STEP: MONDAY MORNING GAME FOR BEGINNERS

THE NEXT STEP: MONDAY MORNING GAME FOR BEGINNERS

A new bridge game for players with less than 5 master points continues on Mondays from 9:30 until 11:30 AM. Mike DeVivo directs 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. This is the perfect way to gently put your brand new bridge knowledge to good use! Come and play, and let Mike lend a tip or two when needed.

 
BEGINNING BRIDGE DOES NOT STOP FOR SUMMER

The Beginning Bridge Game on Tuesday afternoons at 1 PM is a lesson in itself! There will be a review of previously learned material and then a short game with "guidance" from the director if requested.  Relaxed bridge…perfect for these hot, lazy days of summer.

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.

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.
