This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

July 26

Dear Charlie

dear abby.png

 

Dear Abby was founded by Pauline Phillips in 1956. Her daughter Jeanne was born in 1942 and in 2000 was introduced as Pauline’s “Dear Abby” successor. It is a little known fact that Jeanne had a younger brother Charlie.

 

********************************************************

 

Dear Charlie,

 

I need more practice playing bridge. I would love it if there was a supervised play class in the evening. Any advice?

 

Plays Golf in the Morning

 

Dear Golfer,

 

I have good news for you. Starting this coming Wednesday, there will be a supervised play class on Wednesday evening at 6:30. To kick things off, we will be serving pizza at 6:00.  Bring your friends.

 

Charlie

 

**********************************************************

 

Dear Charlie,

 

I wish my life was more colorful. Almost everything I have is black. In fact, all the points that I earn in bridge are also black. Can you help?

 

Monochrome Mike

 

Dear MM,

 

I fear that you are looking for points in all the wrong places. Try playing this coming Monday afternoon when there is a NAP qualifying game. ½ of those points will be red.

 

In August, there will be several more NAP qualifying games as well as STAC games (August 17-23) which will give silver points.

 

Also, on Labor Day weekend there will be a tournament that offers all silver points.

 

That ought to put a little color in your life.

 

Charlie

 

**********************************************************

 

Dear Charlie,

 

I like playing in games and doing lessons that are appropriate for my experience level. I don’t have many points. What should I do?

 

Afraid of the Big Guys

 

My Dear Little One,

 

I understand how the “big guys” can be intimidating. While you should not worry about playing with them, here are some events this week which would work for you:

 

Monday at 9:30 – 0-20 Game

Tuesday at 9:00 – 299er Supervised Play Game

Tuesday at 6:30 – Intermediate Game

Wednesday at 6:30 – Supervised Play (Pizza at 6:00)

Thursday at 9:30 – The Next Step – Competitive Bidding

Friday at 9:45 – Supervised Play

 

That ought to keep you out of harm’s way.

 

Charlie

 

**********************************************************

 

Dear Charlie,

 

I am addicted to bridge. My wife says that if I play much more bridge, she will leave me. Is there a cure?

 

Thirteen is my Favorite Number

 

Dear Triskaideka,

 

I do not know of a cure, but you can feed your addiction this coming week at these games:

 

Monday at 12:30 – Open and 499er NAP Qualifying Games

Monday at 6:30 – Open Game – free mini-lesson at 6:00

Tuesday at 9:00 – 299er Supervised Play Game

Tuesday at 12:30 – Open Game

Tuesday at 6:30 – Intermediate Game

Wednesday at 12:30 – Open and 499er Games

Thursday at 12:30 – Open and 299er Club Championship Games

Thursday at 6:30 – Swiss Team Game

Friday at 12: 30 – Open and 499er Charity Games

Saturday at 12:30 – Open Game

 

You will be so busy that you will not even notice that your wife is gone!

 

Charlie

 

*********************************************************

 

If you have any questions for Charlie or requests for partners, you can email him at cfgill@verizon.net or you can see him at the club.
