Club Manager's Weekly Message

Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:


As a reminder, it's flu season.  The flu can be very serious, so if you have the flu, please stay home so you can take care of yourself and avoid spreading it to others.

Here's a recap of the REACH winners from our club:

  • Aldo Cardia won 4.65 gold
  • Harry Richardson won 2.57G/1.27R
  • Jonathon Robbins won 1.38 gold
  • Kathy Margolin won .96G/.96R
  • Barbara Gomez won .92G/.92R
  • Jinty Chappell won .7G/.69R
  • Pete Chiodo won .7G/.69R

The highest point winner played in the 499er game on Thursday.  All played in 2 to 5 games.  The Club's participation in the Common game gives everyone the opportunity to register and compete in REACH games.  Though it may seem expensive, it's a good opportunity for Gold Points, plus you don't have to travel to the Regional Tournaments, which is also expensive.

Our Annual Meeting was held last Thursday.  We had an excellent meeting where we reviewed the Club's activities for the previous year.  It was a good opportunity for players to add input.  Here's a brief summary of the high points:

  • Sylvia and Joel pointed out that we will be going to the community center unless some other opportunity presents itself (like someone donating 1 million dollars). They also said we would not be spending money from our building fund for a long-term lease. We are still looking for a full-time home with exclusive use.
  • Swiss Team play was also discussed with several possible updates to the format so that the movement was not so confusing.
  • Several slow play concerns were discussed by several members. Directors will be reminding players that we do have a 2-minute rule stated in our standing rules. No board is started with 2 minutes or less on the clock. We also have a policy that play may be stopped after 2 minutes have elapsed for the next round. Directors hate pulling boards but slow play happens often and stopping play and pulling boards is necessary. You can help by checking the clock before starting your last board.
