Club Manager's Weekly Message

Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:

This week, we have an entire week of Club Appreciation Games.  This means extra black awards at 81.8% Sectional Rated.  Club Appreciation games award more points than a Club Championship game with no extra charges;  the game fee is just $5.00 for members.  All games this week, open, 299er, 499er, and handicapped are Club Appreciation (CA) games.  That's a pretty good deal for everyone, so we hope you will come and play with your favorite partner.  See below for the complete schedule.

October 27th SectionalOur new Open Sectional will be on Friday, October 27 and Saturday, October 28 with open and 499er pairs games at 10:00 AM and 2:30 PM with lunch available in between sessions.  On Sunday, October 29, we have a Bracketed Swiss Teams play through beginning at 10:00 AM until about 5:00 PM with lunch provided.


District 9 NAP Finals.  Our club is one of the sites for the “District 9 North American Pairs” qualifier games starting Saturday October 28. The first round starts at 1:30 PM and the second round is at 7:00 PM.   


It’s highly unlikely that the third and fourth rounds on Sunday at 10:00 AM and 2:30 AM will be required.
 

The game format will be separate sections for each stratum; A, B, and C.  So, you only play against players in your peer group, making it a more competitive game for everyone.
 

You should consider playing in the Saturday NAP game just to see how well you stack up with other players. All players will have qualified at their respective clubs, so it will be a more competitive game, but in most ways, it's still just another bridge game that may find you and partner playing your best game.

 

Of course, we need your help with the NAP and Open Sectional, so please sign up at the club with your donation of help, food dishes, or a financial donation.
