Extra Masterpoint Games

There are no extra point games this week

Gabby's Game

Gabby's Game, Sat., Sept. 15

The club would like to thank all the players who turned out to support Gabby’s Game on Saturday.  We certainly had challenges with the large turnout.  The board will be reviewing what we can do better in the future, and we will learn from this experience.   In spite of our difficulties, the highlight of the event was having Gabby’s daughter come to the club to see the turnout in honor of her mother.  Again, thank you to our players for your patience and for honoring Gabby’s memory.


Club Etiquette

Club Etiquette

Each pair should have at least one, and preferably two, convention cards during a game.  Also, one player in each pair should keep a private score so that questions about scoring can be investigated and solved.  Our directors thank you for your cooperation.
