Reopening Wednesday September 13 at noon. Welcome Back!
We’ll be open as usual on Labor Day.
Starting September 6, we’ll have Open and 299er sessions on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. The Open game gets credit for the tables in the limited game, but the two games are otherwise quite separate.
We’ll have Quarterly Club Championships on the 5th, the 13th, 14th and 29th.
September 18-23 is ACBL Membership Week in our Club. Extra points for no extra charge, but non-ACBL members will be ineligible for masterpoints. We also have ACBL Instant Membership forms here at the desk for anyone who would like to join.
We finish the month with team games on the 29th (Open) and the 30th (Eight is Enough). For Eight is Enough, C is NLM to 750; B, LM to 2500. Please sign up so we can plan refreshments for this game.
Work on the Ladies Room is complete now. Kudos to Nancy Zook, Ken and Cathy Cappy and Lynn Berg for the results.
Our club education programs are alive and well. We have Chat Bridge every Tuesday morning at 9:30. The lesson games on Wednesday mornings and Sharon Lessard’s Defense in the 21st Century continue on Thursdays. Check the bulletin board for topics.
Lynn Berg will present a Workshop on Negative Doubles on Thursday, September 21, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Charge is $20. There’s more to this useful convention than you may realize!
Our yearly Mentoring program starts in October, so now is the time to set up a mentor partnership. If you need a mentor or are willing to mentor, let Lynn know. As in previous years, there will be a special Mentor Game on the second Thursday of the month.
September Birthdays: 2-Andrea Woodham; 16-Diana Bitler, Marianne Hansen, Ken Cappy; 19-Susan Williams, Joan Padgett; 22-Virginia Winters; 26-Ann Murray; 28-Larry Padgett.
The parking lot is about to fill up as sunbirds come home—please make sure the exit lane and the grass parking areas are accessible for late arrivals.
