This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

April 28

 

The Old Guy Gets a New Life
*
 

The old guy grabs his metal detector and heads to the beach. Because his life is so boring, he goes there most days and every day he finds something. Sometimes it is jewelry. Often a few coins. Some of them are real silver.

*

 

If you are a 499er (not a Life Master) looking for silver points, make sure you get involved in the 499er Silver Point tournament this week. There are pairs games at 10:30 and 3:00 on Thursday (the 24th) and Saturday (the 26th) and a Swiss team game on Sunday (the 27th) at 10:30. We hope to see you there.

 *

 

It doesn’t happen often, but when the old guy finds something of value, he takes it to the pawn shop and cashes in. Then he goes to the horse track and bets $2 on horse number 5 (his favorite number) on each race that day. Amazingly, in 10 races, he finds he wins about 12.5% of the time but he usually comes home with less money than he went with.

*

 

Talking about horse racing, the bridge club is having a Preakness Party on Saturday evening May 17. The party kicks off at 5:30 and includes prizes for the best costumes, a barbecue dinner and bridge. Mark this date on the calendar and sign up at the club.

*

 

One day, he notes that St. Petersburg Bridge Club is offering beginner bridge lessons and that the first lesson is free. This sounds more interesting than toting the metal detector each day and he signs up.

*

 

We are offering a number of lesson opportunities starting in May. Here is the line-up:

*

 

Monday at 9:00 – Novice Supervised Play

Monday at 6:00 – Free Mini-Lesson

Tuesday at 9:00 – Roy’s 299er Supervised Play Game

*Tuesday at 9:30 – Beginners Class (first lesson is free)

Friday at 12:30 – Free Mini-Lesson

*Saturday at 2:30 – 2/1 Bidding Concepts

*

 

*Starts the week of May 5 – other sessions are ongoing

*

 

The “feeling a little younger” guy finds a whole new energy in bridge and gets hooked. He wants to play bridge all the time.

 *
