Club Manager's Weekly Message

Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:

There's a lot going on this week at the club.  We have Rita Gottlieb's Celebration of Life and our NAP District Finals and Sectional Tournament.
 

Before we go into details, we do need some additional dessert items and snacks for the Sectional Tournament Our food has always received the highest praise, so let's continue this tradition by showing our guests a great time.  Cakes and Pies are always favorites of our guests, along with snack items.  Please consider donating a dish.  You can sign up at the club, or speak to Sylvia or Victoria.

Remembering Rita Gottlieb

This Tuesday at 11:30 AM, we'll be celebrating Rita Gottlieb's life with a light lunch and snacks.  Rita passed away just shy of her 100th birthday, we had planned to celebrate this Tuesday.  Instead, we'll be gathering to celebrate her life with her son and friends.  Please join us as we share some of our memories of Rita.

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; you must play both sessions. IF NECESSARY (but it’s highly unlikely), play continues Sunday at 10:00 AM and 2:30 PM.

Many of you have asked, “Should my partner and I play in the NAP game?”  District 9 has 18,562 members and comprises Florida, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.  Qualifying pairs from each club will be playing, the best of the best.  An exceptional pair like Mike Dalton and Spike Lay have a shot at winning here and at the Nationals in Philadelphia. We recommend that unless you are planning to continue on to the Nationals (if you qualify here) and you and your partner are an established, fine tuned pair, that you do not play in the NAP.   Instead, it’s best to enjoy playing in our sectional.

Open Sectional Tournament

Our new Open Sectional starts Friday with open and 499er pairs games at 10:00 AM and 2:30 PM.  Sunday, we have “Bracketed Swiss Teams” play through which starts at 10:00 AM and is over at about 5:00 PM.  Lunch is available at the pairs events for just $5.00 and is included at Swiss Teams.

Whatever you decide, we hope you play this weekend at our club’s NAP and Sectional Tournaments.  We do need your support and help.  Our tournaments provide the club with much needed income, without which, we could not operate.  Please join us; you'll be helping the club and you'll have some fun, too.
