New Mentor Game

Starting Wednesday morning September 7, we will offer a 'mentor' game in which at least one of the two players in each pair must have fewer than 750 masterpoints.  The game will take place every Wednesday morning and will be flighted according to the higher masterpoint total of the two players in each pair.  For the first month, card fees will be ten dollars per person.  Our lunch buffet will be included. 

This game will be in addition to our usual open stratified pairs game and will be open to any pair unless both players have more than 750 points. 

Increased Limits for New Player Games

Effective immediately, the masterpoint limit for our Monday morning and Wednesday evening limited games has been raised to 150 points.

Extra Masterpoints During September

During September, all of our games will pay extra masterpoints at no extra charge.  Each of the games will be an International Fund Pairs game which will pay extra masterpoints at no extra charge.

Keep in mind that our Monday morning, Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning, Wednesday evening, Thursday morning and Friday morning open pair games use the table count from the concurrent I/N games to add additional masterpoints.  Enjoy duplicate bridge in our state-of-the-art club and earn the maximum number of masterpoints allowable.  

Card fees are twelve dollars per person ($11 with an account) for all of our morning games which include our excellent lunches, except for the Monday morning 99er and the Friday 299er games.  The Monday morning 99er, new Wednesday mentor game, the Monday and Wednesday evening open games, the Friday morning 299'er and the Saturday afternoon games are $10 ($9.50 with an account).  The Wednesday evening 99er game is only $7. 

 

Full Schedule of Games

We offer flighted open pair games every morning Monday through Friday plus on Saturday afternoon and on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  In addition we have the following limited games: 0 - 1500 (flighted) on Tuesday mornings, 0 -1000 (flighted) on Thursday mornings, 0 - 300 (flighted) on Friday mornings and 0 - 149 on Monday mornings and Wednesday evenings.  The open games will award masterpoints based on total table count when held at the same time as a limited game.   

The limited Monday morning, Wednesday evening and Friday morning games are all preceded by a free lesson from Chuck Goudey.  The limited Thursday morning game is preceded by a free lesson from Blair Young.

Come enjoy the fun and challenge of duplicate bridge at the appropriate level for you.

Slight Change in Flight Limits for Open Games

We have raised the limit for Flight B in all of our Open Games to 2500 masterpoints.  With the exception of NAOP Pair Games, all of our open games determine flights by the average masterpoint total of the two players.  The limit for Flight C will remain at 750 masterpoints.
