Game time is 1:30 Monday March 2 for the National Seniors Game. There will be separate sections for 0-199 and 200+ players. We’ll honor new Golden Age Masters Ann Murray and Annette Smith. Past GAMs play free that day.
Our Charity for March is the Neighborhood Center. Bring non-perishables and cleaning and hygiene supplies any time this month for delivery on the 31st. We’ll also put out a bowl for cash donations. We kick off the charity month on the 5th. See the calendar for other dates. Also on the 5th, we’ll honor Jerry Meronek at break time with a “retirement party.” Jerry has had some health problems and has regretfully decided he hasn’t the stamina to play. Make a point of coming on the 5th to greet our old friend.
We’ll have Quarterly Club Championships on the 11th and 13th, as well as an ACBL Membership Game on the 21st.
We round out the month with an Open Individual in the 199er game on the 30th—all are invited—and a Grand National Team Qualifier on the 31st ($6 for members of our club, $8 for visitors).
Sharon Lessard continues Supervised Play on Tuesday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30. Lynn Berg will offer special workshops for 0-299 playerstwo Wednesday mornings each month, beginning with “choosing the opening bid” on March 4. Charge for either of these programs is $5 for members and $8 for non-members of our club.
Our monthly Mentor Game will be held on the 12th, with the Mentor Session on the 19th. Mentors play free on the 12th.
We can still use help with on-going projects to improve the club. The ceiling fans need an upgrade as do the blinds(25+years old). Bidding boxes are being refurbished, cleaned and painted white, while Lefty boxes have been cleaned and painted blue. Work continues on the kitchen as well.
