On Sundays we hold a casual, shorter game and invite new players to join us.  The cost is $5 and partnerships are arranged. Game time is 12:30.
 
North American Pairs (NAP)
A highly prestigious “grass roots” event, the North American Pairs starts at the club level in June, July and August. A player may qualify as often and with as many different partners as desired. Masterpoints are 50/50 red/black at 81.8% sectional rating.  AB and C level winners who qualify may move on to district and finally national championships!  Good luck to all.  No extra fees.  Check schedule for the dates.

New for Tuesday Game
When you enter the club you will stop at the collection desk to pay or present your pass.  There will be no seating cards at the collection desk.  Instead we are going back to placing stratification mats on the tables.  There will be an "A" mat at table 1; a "B" mat at table 2; "C" mat at table 3 etc. to table 18.  Pairs will seat themselves at an appropriate table with consideration for players who have health issues. 
The stratification  based on  AVERAGE MPS OF PARTNERSHIP for A,B and C are as follows:  A=over 1200; B= 400-1200; C=under 400. Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to game time and sit at an appropriate table.  The director may have to make some changes to balance the field.  We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation.  The game is fairer when the field is properly seeded.
