Thanks to everyone who joined us at the

Thanksgiving Party and game,

Particularly the intrepid 299ers who survived playing in the open game since the 299er game did not make.

CHOOSE HOUSTON!

In case you have not yet checked out our online games… we now lead with “CHOOSE HOUSTON!”. We want to draw attention to the fact that the support of local clubs is important for the health and stability of our bridge-playing community. When a local virtual club game is bypassed for an out-of-town game, we lose the revenue that pays the bills for our local clubs. Especially now, with reduced F2F table counts at clubs around town, virtual club game fees cover the expense of operating local facilities.  

Beginning Monday, August 30, the Houston pool (Apple, BCOH, Clear Lake-Galveston) offers open and IN online games in the morning and in the afternoon. Open online games are offered three evenings a week.

We Play Friendly!
We Play Friendly!

Do you remember reading "Highlights for Children" magazine?

If you do, I bet you recall the Goofus and Gallant page, featuring gentle suggestions for good and not-as-good behavior.

While Gallant might say "Thanks for giving our Open game a try!",

Goofus might say "Nah, I'll never try that."

While Gallant might say, "We are glad to see you at our F2F game!",

Goofus might say, "Forget that online stuff. Ugh! I only play REAL bridge."

Let's all try to be less Goofus and more Gallant. Some friendly messages:

Thanks for driving all the way to our club for a F2F game!

We appreciate your giving our online game a try.

We know you have moved out of town, so thanks for supporting our club by playing in our games online.

Thanks for being an Ambassador/ online game sub. You help us be successful!

Your financial support is a big help. Thanks!
