Cast your ballot in the Primary, and then come play bridge.
BUT, we won't be playing at the Elsmere Senior Center!
Instead, we'll be playing at PeeWee's Place in Crescent Springs.
If you come to play, it's $15
($5 for your game and $10 for lunch).
Pay for lunch in advance, see Cindy.
Lunch includes soup/salad/sandwich.

What a sweet deal, all the homemade pie you can eat AND a club championship. It all comes together this Wednesday 5/22!
While not originally planned as HOMEMADE PIE NIGHT, the club's pie bakers have demanded a venue for their wares.
And YOU can be the beneficiary of their insistence as there will be more pie than we can eat!
If that isn't a sweet enough deal for you, Wednesday is a designated Club Championship where you'll win double points. If you're first, your picture will take its rightful place on the 2019 Club Champions picture board, right next to three time club champs Jack & Brenda.

Wednesday May 29th is a 5th week special pairs game. That evening you can win a FREE game. All you have to do is be the best at predicting your game percent.
This will play like a barometer game. After each round, everyone's goal, game percentage, and proximity to their goal will be posted.
You'll have to choose whether to go for the best game you can achieve, or the one closest to you prediction.
Swiss TEAM game last Thursday of May!
We'll play the Philadelphia movement which provides hand records and the same swing board opportunities for all teams! This is the fairest swiss game you can play.
Get your TEAMS together now, and sign-in at the club.

At the end of May, we'll play our annual Pro-Am pairs game. This mixer gives you a chance to partner with someone you normally don't. It's a chance to see a different perspective in action. It's a chance to have a good time.
Please come without a partner.
We'll divide the attendees in half and make a random assignment of Pros and Ams. We'll take 10-15 minutes to discuss convention cards.
Then we're 'off to the races'.
Pre-arranged Pro-Am partnerships are OK, but please see Cordell before the game. NO regular partnerships, Mentor/Mentee pairs are OK.
If you are less than 500 you are AM. If you are more than 1000 you are PRO. If you are Bronze (500-1000), you choose.
AMs are encouraged to ask a PRO to play. GO for it!

Our annual Mentor-Mentee program runs from May through August.
In this program, 'more' experienced players are paired with 'less' experienced players. Pairs should try to play about twice a month over the period. Mentors should share their 'wisdom' ONLY in areas where the mentee has asked for advice. This 'wisdom' sharing should occur AWAY from the table.
If you would like to participate, but haven't yet been assigned, please see Greg.
Mentor-Mentee pairs may, of course, play together anytime. However, three games each month have been designated as special Mentor-Mentee games. At these games, official Mentor-Mentee pairs will play in the strata of the mentee.
Special Mentor-Mentee games for this year are:
