This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

August 21

The Calendar

 

 

Calendar theft.jpg

 

 

 

Thankfully, the calendar that they took was not our club’s bridge calendar because we have so many upcoming special events for you to mark on your calendar and attend.

 

On Tuesday (August 23) and Wednesday (August 24), you have a chance to participate in a Gold Rush pairs event Online right here at our club. However, you need to register to play in this event. You can find the link on the club’s website (www.stpetebridge.org) If you need help or more information, see Charlie at the club on Monday before the game and/or arrive at the club by 6:00 pm on Tuesday. You can also email Charlie at cfgill@verizon.net

 

We have a set of bridge classes lined up for the fall. Look under lessons to see what is planned. In the meantime, I have been approached by a group of 8 to start a beginner class on a Monday and we have decided to start it this Monday (August 22) at 9:30. Anyone wishing to join this class is welcome.

 

To improve your game and prepare for our Labor Day tournament, plan to attend the seminar that we are offering on Wednesday August 31 at 9:30. Andrew Garnett will be discussing “The Challenge of Bidding Two-Suited Hands.” Sign up at the club.

 

Our four-day Labor Day sectional tournament begins September 2. Make your plans now. Flyers are at the club and on the website. If you are able, sign up to bring snacks/cookies and other goodies others would enjoy.

 

Did you hear about the poor guy who lost his job working at the calendar factory? He got sacked for taking a day off.

 

You will not want to take a day off from playing at the bridge club this week. Of particular note: We are having a special game on Friday August 26 to raise money for Karl Miller and his wife Becky, who is continuing her battle with cancer. The extra dollar will go to help them with medical expenses. In addition, we will also be offering you the opportunity to make additional contributions at the club throughout the week.
