Happenings
Message from BRBC President Frances Schenk

 Dear BRBC Members.

We had our first board meeting of the New Year.  I believe it was productive and the minutes will be posted on the bulletin board (and this website).  Different committees and members serving on them were approved.

Several topics were discussed among them what we could do to make your experience at the bridge table an enjoyable and fun experience.  We want to compete with McDonalds and make our club a “Happy Place”

That being said, most of the discussion boiled down to us as members being courteous, kind and thoughtful to one another.  Makes me proud to say we do pretty well in these categories. However I am sure there is room for improvement. I am going to list a few of the things and ask each of you to look over it and see if you can improve.  I know I can.

  1.  This is so simple and takes two seconds.  When you empty a toilet tissue holder please put on the new roll.  

  2. Our Directors should not have to pick up your dirty dishes. Please take the time to rinse and place the dishes in the dishwasher.

  3. Sometimes we forget and when we leave a table we leave trash behind. Let’s try and pick up after ourselves and clear the tables before we leave for the day.  It would also help to push your chair under the table. 

  4. This brings us to parking which is a premium.  Please make sure you park between the lines. 

  5. Finally, the club and Directors are going to make every effort to enforce the cell phone and electronic rules. This means you should not have your cell out at the table.  Even between rounds. If you expect an important call please leave phone at the desk. If you need to make a call please go to the hallway or outside etc. This includes checking your phone at the table for weather, stock etc. each infraction will warrant a penalty.

Please, help us make our club the best.  Something as simple as not changing the toilet tissue can be annoying to the next person. A very small thing indeed!!  But our goal is not to annoy.

THANK YOU SO MUCH

Frances Schenk

Thoughts
I heard an expert say there are less than 10 truly gifted bridge players on earth that were capable of teaching  the game perfectly.  
Isn't it  just awesome how often we all get one as our partner !!!
