Upcoming Events

CHANGE IN SMOKING AREA

The Board of Directors has decided that for health reasons the smoking area by the front door will not be allowed.  We have placed a bench by the back door for those who want to smoke. The deck outside the back door is a covered area, check it out even if you don't smoke.
Please adhere to this new ruling.

Beginners Bridge Classes
Judy Skellenger's beginners classes are on Saturday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 continuing through December 10th. The fee for each class is $10.
 
2017 Dues
The club is now collecting dues for 2017.  Annual dues are $15 if paid prior to January 15, 2017.  Thereafter, the dues will increase to $20.
 

 

Enhanced Mentoring Program
To make our program more effective for all levels of bridge players, we will be initiating a two-tiered Mentoring  Program under the direction of Anne Johnson. The two tiers will encompass a new Buddy System for novice players (0-20) points,  while revamping our traditional Mentor Program for players above this range.  The mentoring program will now encompass more flexibility in points for the mentors.  For example someone with 100 or more points could Buddy with a player with 0-20 points. As the scale of points increases for the player to be mentored the number of points required to mentor also increases proportionately. Example: Mentor has 200 points, mentee has 100; Mentor has 500, mentee 300 and so forth. We hope this approach will encourage a comfortable and enjoyable coaching experience for all participants.
 
For anyone who is looking to be mentored or who would like to be a mentor please contact either Anne Johnson if you have over 299 points or Fran Ebner if you have under 299 points.  Anne can be reached by email: anneandrich@bellsouth.net, or call 904-829-2305, cell phone, 973-714-8108. Fran can be reached by email, franebner@comcast.net, or call 904-471-4846, cell number 904-315-7320.
