Our second TEAM game of 2019 is on Wednesday evening. It will be a Board (-A-) Match game.
As in all TEAM games, your score against your opponents is all that matters. Unlike other TEAM games, you either win (1), draw (½), or lose (0) the board.
There's no bonus for big scores. SO, use pairs strategy, i.e. overtricks matter, NT vs suit contracts matter, etc.
It's helpful to the director to know approximately how many TEAMs will participate. So, if you know you'll play, please sign-up ahead of time.
Thursday January 31 is our New-To-You Partner game. This "mixer" is filled with lots of laughter and good camaraderie.
A new-to-you partner hasn't been your partner in the last 3 months. New-to-you partnerships get a chance in a drawing for a FREE game.
If a new-to-you partnership includes a player whose last game at NKBC was prior to November, they automatically receive a FREE game. These partnerships are not part the drawing.
Let the fun begin!
