February Game Schedule

Change in strata: The Tuesday and Thursday games will now have the strata of A = unlimited, B = up to 800, and C = up to 240.  This should result in fairly equal size strata on those days.

Except for the special games mentioned below, all afternoon club games this month will be the usual $40 peso open pair games.

 

Friday, February 24th – A 10 is Enough Charity Swiss Team game with an entry fee of $60 pesos will be held. Each team can have no more than 10 team member points where A players are 3 points, B players are 2 points, and C players are 1 point. For example, a team can have three A players and one C player, four B players, etc.--mainly just not 4 A players.  The player strata will be these:

A = unlimited, B = up to 1500, and C = up to 200.  (Note change to strata and relaxed upper limit of 10 team member points to encourage more participation.)

 

The San Miguel de Allende Regional will run from Tuesday, Feb. 28th, through Sunday, March 5th. The club will be open during this time but expect the games to be smaller than normal.

ˇFeliz Navidad 2016!

What do Churchill, Sharif, Gates, Buffett have in common?

 

They are well-known bridge devotees together with Dwight Eisenhower, Mahatma Ghandi, Deng Xiao Ping, Agatha Christie, Oprah Winfrey, Woody Allen, and Martina Navratilova.

The most challenging mental sport, bridge is a game of skill, concentration and infinite possibilities. It’s part science, part math, part logic, part reason and embodies cooperation, problem solving and has even been linked to higher test scores among children. It is an easy game to learn, a hard game to master and you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it.

Millions of people worldwide play at home, in clubs or on-line. Many advance to tournaments or “duplicate” bridge to enjoy its social competitive aspects.

The medical profession is only now coming to realise that, as people are tending to live longer. Remain mentally fit may be as important as maintaining their levels of physical fitness. More and more often chess, bridge, backgammon and crossword puzzles are being cited as excellent activities for keeping the brain exercised and stalling the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Bridge provides an excellent mechanism to improve a player’s:

  • Logical thinking skills
  • Mathematical ability
  • Memory
  • Teamwork
  • Social skills
  • Concentration
  • Critical thinking ability
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving ability, and
  • Inferential reasoning

Bridge is one of the few games played today by people of all ages and nationalities.
