Special Events at Sedona Bridge Center for October

We have several special events at our Sedona Bridge Center for the month of October.  As you know, October is ACBL Club Appreciation Month.

(1)  Open Team games have been scheduled for Wednesday October 4, Tuesday, October 10, and Monday, October 30th.  Also, a 199'er team game has been scheduled for Thursday, October 19th.

 

Why all the fuss?  Club Appreciation games are 100% sectionally rated (interpretation - lots of points), and the club does not have to pay any surcharge for these games.  So, we try to squeeze in everything we can.

How to Fill out your Convention Card
How to Fill out your Convention Card

Many students of the game ask how to fill out the Convention Card.  I was browsing the ACBL website and found a wonderful set of articles, titled "Conventional Wisdom" that describe in detail all the features of the convention card and what they mean.   The articles also give a brief explanation of certain conventions (such as Smollen) that I think is very informational for those who want to expand their knowledge base.

I have uploaded the 24 "Conventional Wisdom" articles to our website for players to use at their pleasure.  Just click on the link "Convention Card - how to fill out" link on the left hand side of our home page,  and the articles are listed in order.  Please note, there is usually one article for each box on the convention card.

I hope this information is helpful.

Thank You
Please - No perfumes or scented after-shaves and lotions

The Sedona Bridge Center Board of Directors has voted 7-0 to implement a club policy that prohibits the useage of perfumes or scented after-shaves or lotions when attending our club.

Some people have an extreme sensitivity to fragrances (colognes or perfumes).  Because duplicate bridge requires players to be in close proximity to each other, individuals who suffer from fragrance-related reactions cannot avoid those who are wearing them.  Among the commonly reported symptoms are intense headaches or breathing related problems.  For those individuals, the issue is much more serious than simply disliking a particular smell - it is a real health problem.

We ask our members to understand this issue and to adhere to our new club policy. 

Thank you,

The Board of Directors
