Under 300 Masterpoints Play Free on Special Saturdays

We have received a generous offer from an anonymous CBC player who will pay for any player under 300 points one Saturday a month for 6 months thru June. This donor would like to see the Saturday game continue to grow and while this is not necessarily about the money, it is more to get newer players in and socialize with CBC members.  We encourage those  under 300 to ask someone over 300 to play with you, or come with your current partner. This will continue to be an Open Pairs game. Please look for this on the CBC calendar and come play.

Play and Learn

How do you get better? ... you PLAY and LEARN.  This is geared for those beginner and intermediate players who want to hone their skills and be competitive at the next level.

Could We Have Set Them?
Should I Duck the First Trick?
How Can We Find the No Trump Game?
We Were the Only Pair NOT in the Slam – Again!

Do you want to improve your game or learn something new?  Then come to PLAY and LEARN with Chris Webb.  One Saturday each month, Chris will review the boards you’ve just played.   He will pick out interesting boards, difficult boards, explain a winning line of play, show how to defeat the contract or just answer questions.

The regular game fee applies but there is no additional charge for the session with Chris – so stay after the game and learn something new!

Check the calendar each month for this special session, then call your favorite partner and join us at the CBC.
