At the end of this coming week, we will be celebrating 10 years of time in which St. Petersburg Bridge Club has had its own clubhouse. We look somewhat different than we did ten years ago!
In recognition, this Friday (October 31), we will have a celebration. A piece of cake, a glass of wine and a great bridge game. We hope that you can join us.
Speaking of 10, if you invest a little time by attending the Larry Cohen seminar, it will pay off for you at least ten fold. Larry’s seminars are very helpful and informative, as well as entertaining. The date is November 8. The topics are Signals and Dealing with the Opponents’ Pre-empts. Sign up at the club today.
Ten is such a great number that it was suggested that we change the 8 is Enough game to 10 is Enough. If we did this, “A” pairs would count for 3 ¾ ,”B” for 2 ½ and “C” for 1 ¼. However, we will stay with 8 is Enough. The next such date is Thursday evening November 13.
