Please join me in congratulating Nita Keith, the Fun and Games Player of the Month for July 2018.

Welcome to Fun and Games Duplicate Bridge Club, Inc
What's Happening in July?

♠  July at a Glance ♣ 

♠ HAPPY BIRTHDAY FUN AND GAMES!!!♠ 

Our biggest event this month will be held on Saturday, July 14th, 2018, beginning at 12 noon. 

We will be serving a pot luck lunch/buffet, anchored by prime beef tenderloin provide by three members of the Fun and Games Board of Directors.  

A big "thank you" to Tom Corbin, George Francis, Jr, and Katie Dunlap for providing this treat.

The pot luck will begin at 12 noon; if you've never experienced one of our pot luck meals, you're in for a treat!

We really have some wonderful cooks in this club (as well as people who know how to buy good food!).

There will be a very BRIEF period of announcements, followed by an Upgraded Club Championship game.

These games pay really big points to lots of places, so it's definitely worth attending.

There is no additional charge for this game.  If you need help finding a partner, feel free to contact Susan Williamson

(funandgamesdbc@gmail.com or 405-286-1115).

It promises to be great fun!


  We have 6 NAP games planned for July.

 NAP games are one of the two contests that begin at the club level and advance all the way to the national level.  All those who qualify at the club level will advance to the Unit Finals that will be held in the early fall.  Unit level qualifiers advance to the District Finals, where the winners (even in C!) win GOLD POINTS!

These games pay 1/2 red and 1/2 black points and cost $2 extra per player.  The extra fees are due to the additional monies chaarged by the ABL and District 15 for these games.

There will be more NAP games scheduled in August, as well.

 The monthly Swiss Team event will be offered on Sunday afternoon, July 29th, at 2:00 pm.  There are two sessions available; one for Open players, and one for 0-500 NLMs.  


 ♣ ♣ ♣Bidding Minor Suit Slams 
Saturday July 21 and 28th
10:00 am - 12 noon   

Linda Hughes will be presenting a two-session class on "Bidding Minor Suit Slams" on Saturday, July 21st and 28th, from 10:00 am - 12 noon. Due to the emphasis on playing in major suit or NT contracts, we sometimes forget that minor suit slams produce very nice results on some boards.  If you are uncertain aout the best ways to uncover these potential winning contracts, these two classes are a great way to learn.  It is not necessary to attend both sessions, but of course, that is where the most benefit will be gained.  Each class costs $20 per player, which includes materials and snacks.  Please contact Susan Williamson to register (we need to be sure to make enough board sets) at funandgamesdbc@gmail.com or 405-286-1115.  It promises to be a great learning opportunity!

Changes in the Convention Chart System

        The ACBL has announced wholesale changes to the system of convention charts.  Beginning in November, 2018, the system will be completely overhauled.  Each club will decide which chart they will use for their games, as well as whether systems that are not part of the standard bidding repertoire will be allowed.  If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please contact Don Davis @ 405-204-4016 or aftonsooner@gmail.com
