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 club s back at  the Edina Senior Center for the balance of the season.

March 31 New Partner Night.  Those of you too shy to ask a new partner can join the pool.

The April schedule was rearranged so that our two-session Open Pairs did not conflict with the IMP Sectional at the end of the month at the ESC

 

The GNTs are only 6 weeks away.
