NOT TOO EARLY TO THINK ABOUT MENTOR-MENTEE!

From Mentor-Mentee Director Dennis Luft: The Mentor - Mentee Program kickoff game will take place on Thursday, August 21 beginning at 1:00 p.m.  The first game will be preceded by lunch beginning at 12:15 p.m. Once the program starts, a Mentor - Mentee pair can play in any game in which both are normally eligible to play with the Mentor playing free.  They may play as many times per week as they agree, but the Mentor plays with no fee only once per week.  The advantage to playing in the Thursday afternoon game is that only Mentor - Mentee pairs are allowed.   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 aspring 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.  I encourage all of the intermediate and novice players to consider participating in this program.  The best way to learn more about bridge is just to play and in this environment there is an experienced player across the table from you to help you gain more knowledge.   Experienced players, do you remember when you were learning to play and there were club members who helped you become a better player?  I am sure this is true for all of you.  Now is your chance to pass that gift along to another newer player.   Please volunteer to be a Mentor.   Club members wanting to participate in this program may contact me directly by email at wbryant5276@charter.net or by telephone 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.
