If you come upon an issue that involves conduct or ethics and you wish to report it either confidentially or not, please click on this article to pull up a form for you to fill out and submit to Russ Pearly, our Club Recorder. This is an additional procedure set up to supplement the Zero Tolerance card to help maintain a friendly atmosphere at the bridge table.
Russ will be up North from June 26 to Sept 30. However, he will still be open for business. His Village phone will be transferred automatically and his mail will be forwarded. Of course you can always scan the form and send it to him as an email attachment.

Thursday June 28 - Class on How to Minimize your Mistakes taught by Charlie Showalter
Following the decision taken at the Annual General Meeting held earlier this year, the Board has now completed the process of Incorporation for the Club. As a result of this, we have been able to effect some welcome changes with our Banking that are of benefit to the Treasurer, plus we have now been able to obtain Insurance Cover which we have felt for a long time was an essential necessity to protect the Club and its officials against mishaps. All of this has been undertaken with the complete knowledge and support from The Villages. Our official name is now The Villages Duplicate Bridge Club, Inc.
Our club has announced the following temporary venue or game changes:
The Club will be sponsoring the ACBL's Instant Match Point Game on Monday afternoon, July 9. This will be a Special game with higher master point awards than a regular game. In addition, Gold points will be awarded to all Section winners. All other awards will be half Red and half Black. Only games with no upper master point limit will qualify for the extra awards. Accordingly the game at Sea Breeze and the one at Laurel Manor will both be open games with no master point limits. The game at Sea Breeze will start at 12:45 PM and the one at Laurel Manor at 1 PM. Since both games will be idential, please go to the venue closest to you.
