Welcome to The Wachusett Bridge Club
OPEN HOUSE CANCELLED

The December 17th Open House at the home of Kathy and Gerry Kersus has been cancelled. Let us all, instead, gather around the nearest bridge table after enjoying what will hopefully be a Happy Hanukkah, a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.

Our schedule of games has now been updated through the end of January 2018.  Next week's game (12/18) will be our last of this calendar year. Please see the Calendar section for a complete list.

BE A DESIGNATED PARTNER

I’m looking for some volunteers to become “Designated Partners.” Here’s how that would work.

Once every couple months, once a year -- whatever you want -- you, as a Designated Partner, would arrive at the club without a partner. If there remains any unattached player at gametime, you would play with that person. And you would play for FREE.

If you are not needed on that day, you could: (1) go home; (2) help me out around the club and learn a bit about directing, or (3) kibbitz at any table where the players would feel comfortable with you doing so. If you are not needed, you play for FREE the next time you do play.

This is a system which many clubs use in order to guarantee partners for all players. Now that we have moved into typical games of 10-12 tables, it has become increasingly difficult for me to direct and play at the same time. That’s especially true when our game must be split between two rooms. So the Designated Player system is an alternative to me having to require that all players arrive with pre-arranged partnerships.

Each week I will leave a signup sheet near the candy bowl on which you can sign up for a specific date of your choosing as a Designated Partner. You’ll help out me, you’ll help out those who are unable to find a partner or whose partners cancel at the last minute, and you’ll earn a FREE game in the process.

Let’s give this a try.

SAVE THE DATE - JANUARY 8

CMBA's Winter "STaC Week" will take place between January 8 and January 14, 2018. We will hold our STaC (Sectional Tournament at Club) game on Monday, January 8. All STaC games award Silver Points to high finishers, so this game is a good way to begin earning pigmented masterpoints without having to play in a sectional or regional event. Hope to see you on the 8th as we kick off our 2018 bridge year. And please visit other CMBA clubs during the remainder of that week, as most (if not all) clubs in Unit 113 will also be holding STaC games

Come and enjoy our well-lit, modern club area at the Holden Senior Center.  We hold the only ACBL-sanctioned and regularly-scheduled game in Central Massachusetts for players with less than 300 masterpoints.
