During the week of July 23, 2018 the Gainesville Bridge Club will hold both the Monday night and the Friday afternoon games at The Village at Gainesville retirement center. These will in the nature of test runs to see how well this facility will fit our needs and how well the club's games will fill the expectations of the staff of the Village.
Games will be held at our normal times of 7:15 PM on Monday and 12:30 PM on Friday. Both games will be held in the Tower Club facility with the Monday game in the Season room and the Friday game in the Studio room.
The Village is located South of NW 39th Ave off NW 83rd Street. The address is 8000 NW 27th Blvd. The address can also be reached by using NW 23rd Ave. To see directions go to https://thevillageonline.com/directions/ for a map.
Prior to the game, we will be coordinating with the facility's security to insure access for all players and for parking.
It is likely that additional test games will be held before a final decision is made on a permanent change of venue.
Please plan to attend to check out this great possibility for the club!
Please contact Eric Taylor, Bill Connellan, Delores O'Connell or Carolyn Brown if you have any questions!
On July 12, 2018, Carolyn Brown and Eric Taylor met with the activities director for the Village for coordintion. We can report that they are very excited to have us play there and will be doing everything they can to support us.
A couple of items to note:
1. When you come in the gate, just tell the gate guards you are with the Gainesville Bridge Club and they will pass you through.
2. Follow the entry road to the Tower Club building (about a half a mile.) You park in any othe spaces near the Tower Club or on road in front of the Club.
3. We recommend you get there early so you can take a look at the facility.
