There will be no open game on August 9—the first day of our two day 299er sectional. Plan to play if you’re eligible, bring goodies and help if you’re not. Its success depends on a joint effort, so please sign up to help.
We’ll continue with Summer North American Pairs grassroots qualifying games on the 5th, 21st and 23rd. Awards are half red points. The “C” strat is non-lifemasters to 500 points, “B” is Life Masters to 2000.
District 9(all of Florida) will hold a Sectional Tournament in Clubs(STaC) August 11-16: no extra charge for members of our club, but $8 for non-members. Strats are 0-750, 750-2500 and unlimited for open games. Monday and Wednesday will have their usual limits.
Our Friday morning 199er game continues this summer. We start at 9 and are done just after noon. Come out and have some fun—and still have most of the day free.
Our charity this month is the No-Kill Journey’s End Animal Shelter. Bring towels and linens, anything for pets, or donate cash. All will be welcome!
We’ll have charity sessions on the 25th, 27th and 28th.
We finish out the month with an Open Team on the 29th and and 8 is Enough Team on the 30th.
