  Virtual Club News of the Week October 7, 2021

October is Club Appreciation Month.  Those of you playing F2F have, or will notice pairs and team appreciation games.  For the Virtual Clubs next week - October 11-17 – will be our Club Appreciation event.  All Virtual games next week will pay out 200% black points for no additional fee.

Remember if you want to play with a partner from somewhere else just let me know that partner’s BBO name.  As long as we stay within the percentage of “guests” allowed by the ACBL, all should be well.  We love having new opponents to freshen our game.

Virtual games will continue as scheduled. We note some changes in Virtual Club schedules in nearby Units.  If your local game is no longer available, try out one of ours.

  New Life Master - Gail Hurst - Oct 2021

Gail Hurst 

1. How long have you been playing bridge?
     Have been playing about 50 years, 9 years at duplicate.
2. What helped you develop your bridge expertise?
     My "bridge expertise" is still very limited, but taking classes with Joe Siqueira, and reviewing with my husband were the reason my game has improved.
     Herb and I went to quite a few tournaments and playing in that type of environment really helped to improve my focus.
3. What advice do you have for new bridge players?
     Relax and enjoy the game and great company. Take advantage of classes if offered, the books available, and participate in as many tournaments as possible.
4. What are some of the things you enjoy most about bridge?
     My favorite thing is the old and new friends I get to see on a regular basis.
     I do enjoy the mental challenge even on those days I think my brain was on holiday. It's great fun .
5. What effect does virtual  bridge  have on your game?
     Not aware of any .
6. Compare your experience between Face to Face vs. Virtual
     Virtual was certainly a perfect way to keep in touch and play during the pandemic, but I personally, was quite happy to come back to face to face. I prefer the face to face, just really enjoy being around people

 With the recent CDC and Virginia guidance that the fully vaccinated should wear masks indoors being a recommendation and not a requirement the Bridge Center policy will not be changed. Only the fully vaccinated will be permitted to enter the Bridge Center for all club games. The wearing of a mask is an individual decision and will not be required by the Bridge Center. Hope to see you at the bridge table.
