December STaC Game

We have registered to play in the STaC (silver point) game for Monday Dec 4th and Sunday Dec 10th. There will be an extra dollar charged to cover the extra cost to the club. These are open games, and all players are welcome.

Stratified Games on Sunday

At a directors' meeting on Oct 22, amongst other issues, we discussed the scoring of the Sunday game. We decided to change it to a stratified game, with A, B and C strata. We'll see how this works out.  If members are happier with it, we will keep it.  This is the same system that is used for most club games and tournaments.  It does mean we will not be using handicaps, but will position you as A, B, or C players based on your ACBL point count. This is the same thing that we normally do on Mondays.

Welcome to Solivita Bridge Club
Solivita Senior Olympics

The bridge club is entering an event again in the Solivita Winter Olympics in January.  Entries are on sale right now, and the proceeds will go to charity. Cost is $20 for the first event you enter and $5 for any subsequent event.

We will run the event the same as last time, with a beginners level game, an open game, and a team game.  They are all part of the one bridge event.  There are no ACBL points for winning these games, but you will have a shot at Senior Olympic Medals. The more who show up, the more fun we'll have.  Last time we had 5 tables at the team game.  We would like to see if we can beat that number this time round.

Team Games

We had eight teams come out for the Swiss Teams game on Friday, November 17th.  This was our largest turnout yet, and is probably the maximum number of teams we can fit in that venue.  People had a good time and the desserts afterward were delicious.  Thanks everyone for taking part.

We will be running another game on Friday, December 15th. Again, we will plan to serve dessert after the final round (it helps keep the cards from getting so sticky).  Donna is suggesting only four people bring food, as there was much more than we needed last time. We will run this game with ACBL points and there will be a charge of $2 for residents and $3 for non-residents.  

Donna is asking people to make up your own team ahead of time. She has a list of players if you need to contact people to help make up a team. (It has become very difficult to try and pre-arrange teams if players have to cancel or decide to come at the last minute.)

Please plan to arrive before 6:15 PM. Make your reservations to play with Donna by e-mail at dmc3726@yahoo.com. This allows us to set up the game for the computer ahead of time, and arrange the food. Beginners are welcome, but you should feel comfortable enough in your game that you can play in a timely manner. It will be a friendly game and we will uphold the ACBL policy of “zero tolerance” for rude or unfriendly behavior...this one will be for master points, but should still be fun.

We will be offering a bridge team game in the Solivita Senior Olympics again this year, and these Friday evenings will give you a little more experience.

ACBL Numbers and Scoring - Alan McIlwain

I have given up on the ACBL number entry from the Bridgepads again.  So many of you were not able to enter your numbers (for various reasons) that it made it more work than it was supposed to reduce. 

Instead I have been using table slips, at least at the Monday games.  This way people can enter their names (or ACBL numbers) on the slips. If you spell them right, we should be able to find your numbers in the database, and you should get credit for any points you earn.

We'll see how this works for a few weeks.
