This Week at St Petersburg Bridge Club

 

August 30

Oh, That's Bad...No, That's Good

 

Sam the Sham.jpg

 

“This is a short week for regular games at the bridge club.”

 

“Oh, that’s bad”

 

“No, that’s good. Because that means there is a silver point tournament starting on Friday.”

 

Our annual Labor Day tournament runs from Friday September 4 to Monday September 7. Full details are on the website (www.stpetebridge.org) and on flyers at the club. Make plans with your favorite partners today or email cfgill@verizon.net if you need a partner/teammates.

 

“The only trouble is that we need more people to sign up to bring snacks and cookies and perhaps even an egg casserole.”

 

“Oh, that’s bad”

 

“No that’s good. Because when people go to the sign-up sheet to offer to bring something, then they will see the sign-up sheet for the Jack Brawner Competitive Bidding seminar.”

 

Jack will be conducting a seminar on When to Bid, When to Pass and When to Double on Wednesday September 9. He is excited to be speaking on one of his favorite topics. So, keep that pencil in hand and sign up for the seminar at the same time as volunteering to bring items for the tournament. Details of the seminar can be found in the usual places.

 

“The only trouble is that Jack has taken a job as Club Manager of the Naples Bridge Club.”

 

“Oh, that’s bad.”

 

“No, that’s good. Now maybe I’ll have a chance to win one of the team games that Jack has been playing in.”

 

We will be having the usual Eight is Enough Team Game on Thursday September 17 and then the Pat McCully Memorial team game on Saturday September 19.

 

“The only trouble is Jack will likely still be playing in those before he goes and my chances to finish first will be diminished.”

 

“Oh that’s bad.”

 

“No, that’s good. When I play, I find out that I need to learn more about bridge and there is a great line-up of lessons starting in September.”

 

Here are the lessons planned.

 

Tuesday at 9:30 – Competitive Bidding Class (starts Sept 15)

Tuesday at 6:30 – Audrey Grant Beginners Class - (starts September 22)

Wednesday at 9:30 – Easybridge Beginners Class (starts September 23)

                                      Tell your neighbors and friends

Wednesday at 6:30 – Supervised Play (good for returning Easybridgers)

Thursday at 9:30 – Intermediate Class (starts September 17)

Thursday at 6:30 – Competitive Bidding Class (starts September 17)

Friday at 9:30 – Hand Analysis (starts September 18)

Friday at 9:45 – Supervised Play

 

“The only trouble is that we have to wait a few weeks till most of the lessons start.”

 

“Oh, that’s bad.”

 

No, that’s good because I will be busy playing in all the events at the club until then.”

 

Here is a list of the events this week:

 

Monday at 9:30 – 0-20 Game

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

Wednesday at 6:30 – Supervised Play

Thursday at 12:30 – Open and 299er Games

Thursday at 6:30 – Swiss Team Game

And then, the tournament.

 

“However, this is the end of this note.”

 

“Oh, that’s bad.”

 

“No, that’s good!!!”

 

See you at the club.
