HBC Annual Meeting

The annual membership meeting of the Harrisburg Bridge Club will be held on Saturday, December 8 at 11 a.m. The agenda for this meeting includes the election of five members to the Board of Governors, who will serve three year terms.  The Nominating Committee has nominated the following individuals: Holly Appleyard, Ginny Burtnett, Kathy Gaither, Cathy Becker and Matt Sherman (the annual meeting notice letter erroneously listed Georgi Hess as a nominee). The meeting will be followed by a catered luncheon and an Open Pairs game (with a separate 0-750 section, if there are sufficient tables in both sections). Both lunch & game are free for HBC Members. Please sign-up in advance, so that we can have an accurate head count for the caterer.

No Stress Bridge - With Masterpoints! (updated)

Enjoy bridge but wish the atmosphere could be as relaxing as a social bridge game? Enjoy social bridge but wish you could be earning masterpoints? Well, we have the answer!! Our new Wednesday morning game seem to be a real hit among our members, and table count is growing, making the game even better. The game is handicapped, so that partnerships with a combined average of less than 1500 masterpoints will get an upward adjustment to their scores (depending upon the number of tables in play, and the average masterpoint holding of the players in each partnership) to enhance their chances to win. And the best part? The game is FREE (that's right, FREE) for all members of the Club (non-members will pay just the $2 non-member fee) during the months of September and October. Beginning in November, the entry fee will be our regular fee of $8.

Some more details: the game will be a regular weekly game except for the Wednesdays when a Swiss Team (evening game) is scheduled. All of the games through November 7 will be extra point games.

Are Your Points Incorrect?

Image result for incorrect

We are experiencing a glitch with our club member database, which has caused members to be listed with more Masterpoints than what their ACBL records show. This needs to be manually corrected. If your masterpoint holding is incorrect, leave a note at the director's table so that your record can be corrected. Thanks.
