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

looks like a million dollars and has a smile on her face to match!

Thank you, Nita, for all you do to promote bridge at Fun and Games.  we are very lucky to have you!

Sunday Afternoon 299er changed to 0-500 NLM

Effective January 1, 2018, the Master Point Limited section of the Sunday afternoon game has been expanded to include all non-life masters with fewer than 500 points.  The Open Section will still be offered.  The change was implemented in response to requests from several players, and was felt to be appropriate in light of the fact that the Life Master designation now requires 500 points.

If you need a partner, please call Joan Thorne at (405)314-9998.  She welcomes players of all levels, but especially "C" players.

Halloween Party and Celebration of New Rankers

On October 28th at 12 noon, Fun and Games held a Halloween Party and Annual Business Meeting, complete with recognition of New Rankers.  The menu included chili, both beef and chicken, provided by the Board of Directors, and sides and desserts provided by players.  

Costumes were optional, but several players got into the spirit and dressed up.  Several witches were seen, along with a clown and joker, a "dealer", the "queen of the club", a bag lady and a baker (guess who?).  A committee of three chose the "Wicked Witch of the West" (Jackie Hertweck) as the first place winner.  She wore green make-up, complete with warts, long gray hair, the characteristic black dress, and hat.  Second place went the the Clown and Joker (Ramona Bienstock and Cherry Blevins); we were delighted to be "stuck in the middle with you", and third place went to Don Davis as the dealer (ask him about his belt and suspenders!). Look for pictures soon.

After the introduction of Board Members, Jane Hughes presented a Treasurer's Report, which shows that operating income is meeting operating expenses, but very little more.  Tom Corbin gave us an update on the Patron Program.  Our fundraising effort has been successful enough that we are very hopeful that our landlords will no longer require a guarantor on our lease.  Tom also pointed out our Donor Tree, which was designed by Board Member James Stammer.

Susan Williamson, Executive Director, announced that Fun and Games is now the second largest club in District 15, in terms of table count.  For years, the Springfield Club has far out-distanced everyone else, but we are closing the gap rapidly.  Through our three classes for beginners, we've added almost seventy-five new members since we opened fifteen months ago.  We've also honored more than 65 New Rankers just this year.  

Other changes for the upcoming year include the cancellation of the Thursday night 0-1750 game after the November 16th GNT game.  There will be Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced Intermediate classes offered in that time space.  Saturday mornings will also see classes offered.  The other change that was announced is that, effective January 1, 2018, the price to play will be increased to $10.  This action was reluctantly taken in light of ever-increasing fees and cost of supplies.
