THE LONGEST DAY
The longest day of the year is Wednesday June 21st.  The Bridge Connection will be joining bridge clubs nationwide and in Canada running charity special games on this day to support the Alzheimer's Association.
We'll have a short (15-16 boards) open game at 9:30am; a separate game at noon for players with 0-499 masterpoints and an open pair game.  At 7pm we'll have another open pair game.  The games will award considerably more masterpoints than we usually do.

You can make a tax-deductible bid to partner with an expert by completing a bid form at the table opposite the director's desk.  Also, you can place a bid in a silent auction for classic bridge books - all books and bidding forms are on the table against the east wall.  Lastly, we are conducting a 50/50 raffle.  The winner gets 50% of the total collected.  There will be several consolation prizes donated by local merchants.  Tickets are $1/each or 7 for $5.  See a director..

SCHEDULE OF GAMES

GRASS ROOTS PAIRS: All games Monday - Wednesday 5/29-31.  Extra high masterpopint awards; game benefits District 12 support of Grand National Teams and NAPs.

World-wide Pairs - Sat. June 3, 12:30pm.  Side game for those choosing not to play in WW Pairs.
