We start the month with the World-Wide Pairs on June 2 ($8, $10). In addition to hand records, there will be a brief analysis of each hand.
Every Wednesday, in addition to the usual 0-299 game, we’ll also have a 0-20 relaxed 12 board game. Both start at 1 p.m. 0-20 players can come with a partner or be paired up at game time. The 0-20 session will last around two hours.
The Summer months are North American Pairs Season, and we’ll hold sessions on the 9th, the 19th and the 28th. Points are half red/half black. Strats are C=NLM to 500, B=LM to 2500, A=2500+.
ACBL has made the Alzheimer’s Association a major charity beneficiary for some years now. We’ll participate on the 23rd with a special game, starting with a covered dish lunch at 12:15. Help support this very good cause. Few of us can say we haven’t been affected by the troubles of Alzheimer’s.
We end the month with an Open Team Game on the 29th and an 8 is Enough Team on the 30th. For the 8 is Enough, C=NLM to 750, B=LM to 2250, A=2250+.
