We will be open the week of November 2 during the Daytona Regional. There will be no Open Game on November 14 because of our 299er Sectional that weekend. Want to play on Thanksgiving afternoon? Sign up if you’re interested.
299ers—plan on playing in our Sectional November 14-15. There will be pair games at 10 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, as well as 2:15 p.m. on Saturday. Sunday afternoon at 2:15 there will be a team game. If you need a partner or teammates, let Lynn know. Too many points to play? You are still needed to help with food, donate goodies, etc. Sign up to help, please. If you know someone who has a budget problem with participating, our club has a fund to help members: talk to Lynn or any other game director.
Take advantage of Supervised Play on Tuesday mornings (9:30-11:30), a chance to ask questions during bidding and play. Easybridge continues on Wednesday mornings from 9 to 11. Topics in November are Take-out Doubles, Responding to NT Openers, Invitational and Forcing Bids and Preempts.
Our monthly Mentor Game will be held on the 12th at 9 a.m. Mentors play FREE. Need a mentor? Ask any game director for help.
Leaving the Bridge Club Board in November are Mary Bennett, George Flack and Burt Rosenberg. George is head of the Nominating Committee. If you are asked to run, please consider doing so: it’s not onerous and it’s so important for our incorporated non-profit to have a complete Board. Nominations will be taken from the floor the week of November 16, with the election to follow the next week if there are more than three nominees.
As we have for several years now, we’ll have a Food Drive to benefit the Neighborhood Center the week of November 16. Extra points all week for our charity. Bring non-perishables and cleaning supplies.
Quarterly Club Championships this month on the 10th and 13th. Does that make Friday the 13th a lucky day?
Finish the month with a 199er team game on the 30th.
Don’t forget: our parking lot gets full as snow birds return. Please don’t block the exit lane or the egress to the grass lot at the back.
If you have a cold, don’t share it! Stay home if you’re sneezing and have a runny nose, please. And speaking of noses, be considerate of the perfume-phobic, please.
