Club Managers' Weekly Message - Week of March 4th


Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:

The St. Augustine Sectional is still going on as this message is being written.  We'll let you know how our members did in a later message.

It may be likely that this Saturday's game will be canceled due to the Daytona Sectional.  Stayed tuned to the website and we'll keep you posted.  We'll also send out a supplemental email.

The Daytona Metropolitan Bridge Club is open for business this week.  Their "Spring Fling" Sectional begins this Thursday and continues through Sunday.  Click the link above in the "Upcoming Local Tournament" section for all of the particulars.  We were grateful (and we still are) that many of our friends came to play with us during the renovation of their club.  We hope to still see many of them from time to time.  Let's let them know we appreciate hosting them by attending their tournament.

Non-member who play with us will now be charged the regular $2.00 surcharge.  We invite all guests who played with us during the Daytona closure to join our club and come play with us as often as you wish.
