Our 299er Silver Days are April 1 and 2, so there will be no open game on the first Thursday of April. Not a 299er? Help us with goodies or volunteering for a session. Sessions start at 10 a.m. and 2:15 p.m.
We continue with the Neighborhood Center for our charity games in April. This local institution supports children and families in need, provides emergency shelter and has a much-used food bank and thrift store. We’ll have charity sessions on April 6, 18 and 21.
Other special games: ACBL Membership Game April 10 and Quarterly Club Championships April 14, 20 and 25.
We round out the month with a 299er Team Game on the 29th and an Open Team Game April 30.
Our monthly Mentor Game will be held on April 9. Check with your partner ahead of time, please. If you need a partner, let a game Director know ASAP. These sessions will continue this summer if attendance warrants.
The free Monthly Mentor Session on the third Thursday is on vacation April to October, resuming October 15. Many thanks to Pat Gregory, Sharon Lessard, Claes Lindh and Virginia Winters for giving their time for these sessions.
Lynn Berg will offer a Workshop on NT bidding and Stayman on Wednesday morning, April 15, from 9- 11
Starting this month, our newsletter will be available only on line unless you ask a game Director to make you a paper copy. Instead of the newsletter, the reverse side of this month’s calendar will be the special games for the following months.
A word to our snowbirds: Come Back! We’ll miss you!
