This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

December 4

"Foresight"

Many of you have read the article on Arnold Palmer playing bridge in our monthly bulletin which is available at http://stpetebridgebulletin.org/Dec-2016-1/index.html

In one of his last golf games, his opponent may have asked him how many notable bridge events were coming up in December in St. Petersburg, just as he was swinging. Palmer yelled “Fore!”

 

Let’s review this and see what he had in mind.

 

Event 1. – The Holiday/Christmas party on December 10. A Pot Luck dinner is planned for 6:00 and the Jack Batcheller Memorial Game will begin at 7:00. Make plans today, sign up at the club and don’t forget a toy for the families of Isaiah’s Inn.

 

Event 2 – Defense Boot Camp/Seminar – December 17/18.

Palmer spoke at many seminars, like the one pictured above, but he was thinking about the Defense Boot Camp on December 17/18 with Andrew Garnett. Details are on flyers at the club and on the website at http://www.bridgewebs.com/stpetersburg/2016%20Dec%2017-18%20Defense%20Bootcamp.pdf This is a great deal for $40 for one day or $65 for both days. Sign up at the club or email cfgill@verizon.net

 

Andrew’s book, Basic Defensive Communications, has just earned an A- rating from the editor of the ACBL Bridge Bulletin.
