Silver Life Masters:
On June 21, 2018, our club will be having a day of bridge with all profits, including the director's fee, being donated to the Alzheimer's Association. We are asking members to make a direct donation to the Alzheimer's Association Longest Day Fundraiser by clicking the link below. Please join your fellow members by coming to play and making a donation to this worthy cause. The dollars you donate help fuel the care, support, and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association.

On game day, we'll have a late morning session, followed by lunch and a Silent Auction of some very nice items donated by local merchants and members of the Club, followed by a second, afternoon session. It will be a "fund" day of bridge (pun intended), with good food and fellowship for a truly worthy cause. You can also follow the Club's progress in reaching our goal by clicking the link below. In previous years, the Club has raised thousands of dollars for the Alzheimer's Association thanks to the generosity of our members. Let's do it again!

Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:
Here's an update from Sylvia regarding our permanent home search.
I understand there has been some talk about the future availability of the property which is currently the Palm Harbor Academy. I have been in contact with County Schools, with whom we have a very good relationship. While there is no change currently scheduled at that property, County Schools is aware of our interest in that or any property that may become permanently available.
As always, we continue to explore all avenues in our quest for a permanent home.
A week from tomorrow, Monday, May 29th we're planning our Memorial Day Lunch and game. We're planning on Hot Dogs and Hamburgers and would like our members to bring side dishes and desserts. You'll find a signup sheet at the club this week, so let's all plan to attend. Lunch will be around Noon with the game to follow. We hope to have a big game with two sections.
The Longest Day - Alzheimer's Benefit
Well, we've been talking about the Longest Day event for some time now. June 21st will be here before you know, and we've been making good progress toward our fundraising goal. Russ has been doing a fine job coordinating the event and the fundraising efforts. Our thanks to Russ.
The Longest Day event will be held on June 21, 2018. This ACBL-wide event benefits the Alzheimer's Association. Please consider making a donation on our website, or by following the link below. You can also donate at the club.
Russ is manning the donations table at the Club and has been doing a great job. You can donate by cash or check. He usually sets up a table in the break room, so please consider making a direct donation at the Club if you haven't already done so on the website.

And the usual
We are updating our member database for the next printing of the directory. A loose-leaf folder will be at the Director's station. Look up your name and verify or correct the information. As yet, we have had just a few people make changes or approve the current information, so please take a moment to check your information and either make changes or initial or write "OK" if it is correct.
Try our 99er class and supervised play every Monday afternoon with Gerry Calabrese. Newer players with under 100 masterpoints are invited to learn and share experience with other players. It's a good opportunity to gain experience.
We continue to have some difficulty in getting some of the trash cleaned up after the game. We know many of our players have been very good about throwing out their trash and recycling cans and bottles, but we would like to request that everybody take just a moment to clear your own tables of trash after each game.
Here's this week's schedule: All games are District Grass Roots charity games with extra masterpoint ts awarded.
