Club Managers' Weekly Message

 

Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:

 

We would like to announce a  new trial game format.

Daytona has long run a fun and popular type of Swiss Teams format on Friday evening.  You register your pair prior to the game, then show up as a pair and get randomly paired with another pair to form a team.  It's a great way to gain experience with Swiss Teams with a variety of players.  There is no masterpoint restriction to play.  Newer players may be teamed with more experienced players.

Spike Lay (Mr. Bridge) from the Daytona Metropolitan Bridge Club will be directing a trial this Friday Night at 6:30 PM.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so the game can get organized and started.

We'll have players from Daytona attending, so we hope you'll tell your friends and grab your partner and plan to attend.

YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER by SIGNING UP AT THE CLUB or emailing either:

pheading@att.net
jonathon@jcrobbins.net
or
sylviadia ne1@icloud.com.

We'll make sure your pair gets registered.  We will need an even number of pairs to form teams.

We hope to see you there on Friday evening.
 

A Special Invitation to our Friends in Daytona


As some of you may know, the Daytona Metropolitan Bridge Club is getting a new roof, along with some other upgrades.  We're told that the club will be closed during the renovation from September 18th to September 30th.

We'd like to extend a special invitation to our friends in Daytona to come play with us in Palm Coast during this time. 
Our usual $2.00 non-member surcharge will be waived for our Daytona friends and any other non-member who comes to play during this time.  Everybody will pay the $6.00 member table fee for our Charity Club Championships games.

If you are not familiar with our game schedule, please check below for the full schedule this week of Open, 299er, and 499er games.

September is International Fund Month, so all games this month are Special Charity Club Championship games.  These types of games do not allow handicapping, so all games will be stratified.

Fall Class Schedule

In case you missed the last two messages, here is an update for our fall class schedule.

October 1st begins the fall class series.  We are in the process of defining classes.  So far, here's what we have:

Monday morning: Beginning bridge "1" at 10:00 AM with Patrick
Monday afternoon: Beginning bridge class and play at 12:15 PM with Gerry
Wednesday afternoon: Class and play with Kathie Margolin
Thursday morning: Beginning bridge "2" at 10:00 AM with Jinty
Friday morning: Beginning bridge "3" at 10:00 AM with Tom Fletcher

We'd like to encourage new players by offering 1 month of FREE classes to start their bridge "career."  Building our club and making new friends is important to all of us, so we would like to ask our members for their support and suggestions.
