Web Site

The Board of the Minneapolis Grand Slam Club welcomes you to our new website.  The Club, in its 79th year,  has a weekly Friday night game in a tournament atmosphere.  Club members are able to take advantage of many enhanced masterpoint games with no surcharges added.  We seek to maximize the number of pairs you play against and the number of comparisons per board with web and Howell movements.  

Each week one of our members brings treats.  The club provides coffee at no charge.  Members receive a weekly bulletin via email following the game with weekly results and commentary on key hands.

Most of our games are held at the Edina Senior Center (see directions).  During NABCs and when the ESC is otherwise unavailable games are held at the Twin City Bridge Center at 60th & Nicollet.

Partnerships are guaranteed for pair games if you arrive before 7pm.  See the Player Pool tab on the home page.  Gametime is 7:15pm

MGSC Round Robin Teams

This year the 2016-2017 MGSC KOs evolved to an all-play-all round-robin format.

A number of players were not happy with the time commitment required.  The Board solicits  your opinions re. next  year's competition 

The MGSC Board will review this format and consider new options including a hybrid of round robin play (Swiss?)  leading to KO semifinals for next year's event. 

Kudos to the winners:  Eric Hendrickson, Paul Gutterman, Andy Caranicas, and Richard Lawson and to

2nd place:  Joe Rice, Mike Flader, Steve Gaynor, Jean Boettcher, Paul Meerschaert, and Bob Schachter

The Grand Slam Board is pleased to announce that this year's Annual Meeting and Party will be FREE to members.  This is made possible by an improved financial condition, primarily due to the change in the format of the MGSC KOs which brought in increased revenue.

I invite all members to attend the May 19th End of Year Party and Annual Meeting which will be held at 6:00 pm at the Edina Senior Center.  Nonmembers are welcome at a flat rate of $10.00 per person, which includes dinner, bridge, or both.  Dinner will once again be catered by Broder's Cucina on 50th and Penn.

Reservations are required.  You may RSVP to this newsletter, or contact David Neiman, Mike Cassel, or Nancy Meeden by email (found in your membership spreadsheet).

Please let us know if you want a vegetarian option (spinach lasagna).

Reservations must be received by Wednesday May 17.

 

David Neiman, MGSC President, 2016-2017

 

(Note that this is a change to the previous information about the party.  Members who have already paid will have their money refunded.)

 

PLEASE LET US KNOW BY NEXT WEDNESDAY…PLEASE PLEASE.  

The game following will be an individual,  always a social and fun evening.  The game will benefit the grass roots fund.
