Slate Announced: Diane Falla, Paul Moniz, Gene Rizzo.
Nominations from the floor October 23-28.
October is Club Appreciation Month: you’ll see special pair games and special team games scheduled in every session held weekly on our calendar. While all the pair games offer extra black points, the team games also have a small percentage of gold (what Bud Randall called “gold dust!”). No extra charge for these games. They’re a thank you from ACBL for our participation as an ACBL club. See lists of Pairs and Team games for Limited and Open Games in the left hand column of this page.
In addition, we’ll have a food drive for the Neighborhood Center from October 16 to through the 23rd. Bring non-perishable food as well as cleaning and hygiene supplies to the club to be delivered on the 24th. Money is welcome, too. This is a great time to take advantage of BOGO offers at our local grocery stores. Also, you’ll find reasonably priced cases of vegetables at Sav-a-Lot. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, they really need our help. So many people lost all the food they had on hand.
Mentoring season starts in October. 0-300 players, ask a more experienced player to be your mentor. We’ll have a monthly session where mentors play free (second Thursday at 9:30 a.m.), this month on October 12.
The Club Appreciation Team game on Saturday, October 29th, will be preceded by a covered dish lunch. It’s a draw team, so bring your partner and come along. Monday the 31st will be a Grand National Team qualifier ($8, $10). Open is 2500+, B is LM to 2500, and C is NLM to 500—a great opportunity for the C players.
Monday finishes with an Open Individual on the 30th. Players with more than 200 points are invited to join the Monday group for a fun day with great refreshments.
Please be considerate of others. Minimize the use of cologne, scented powder and perfume or aftershave. Park so that others will be able to get in. We’re about to have a lot of sunbirds back.
