DESIGNATED PARTNER:NEED ONE !!
Our schedule of games has now been updated through the end of November 2018.
I’m always looking for some volunteers to become “Designated Partners.” For newer arrivals at our club, here’s how that works.
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. Whether you are needed or not, you also 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.
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.
