District 9 will again host the NABC in a few years, and fund raising has already started. Play in one of the District 9 NABC games for sectionally rated masterpoints. 0-300 players on April 9, Open games on April 10 and 12.
We’ll hold an ACBL Membership Game on April 25. Anyone may play, but only ACBL members will be eligible to win masterpoints. If you’re not a member of ACBL and would like to join, the club can offer an Instant Membership—at a reduced rate of $28 for first-time members. There are real advantages to joining: besides supporting and helping to promote our favorite game, you’ll receive the national Bulletin monthly and Florida’s Sunshine Bridge news six times a year.
0-200 players, don’t forget the Friday morning game which is just for you—9 a.m. to noon on Fridays.
Supervised play is also starting again, on Wednesdays from 9:30 to 11:30. Come on alone or with a partner for this casual chance to practice and ask questions. Our monthly free mentoring session will be held on the 17th, also 9:30 to 11:30.
Tuesday, April 29 is an Open Team. Sign up if you need partners or teammates.
Our 299er Sectional March 22-23 was a big success. Many thanks to all the players who donated snacks and desserts and got our club ready for the big event—and back in shape afterwards! This would not be a great money-maker without concerted effort from a lot of members. We have another in-club 299er Sectional scheduled for August 9-10, so mark your calendars.
We hope all the snow birds are flying off safely. Hurry back, folks.
