Dennis is offering a special Educational Foundation game on Tuesday morning. The ACBL Educational Foundation's purpose is getting more people of all ages and walks of life to play and enjoy bridge. The Foundation primarily does this by awarding grants for bridge educational programs.
Ron (Wednesday) and Mike (Thursday) will be covering for Bonnie again this week.
Your Board of Directors approved the purchase of a new ice machine that has 60% more capacity than the current machine. Think cool thoughts and hopefully we will have it installed soon.
Note: when the Mentor-Mentee game begins August 1, the Thursday morning 1999er morning game will begin at 9:15.
CALLING ALL MENTORS!!!! If you would like to coach an eager up-and-coming player during this year's Mentor - Mentee Program please let me know. Mentors are members with more than 500 master points or any Life Master member with fewer than that. The club has a large group of new members who are anxious to learn from a more experienced player and I am sure they would appreciate your time and effort. As a bonus you get to play for free (special games are extra) once per week during August, September or October if you are playing with your Mentee. The special Mentor/Mentee Game will be added to the game schedule on Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. during that period, but if that time does not work for you, you may still mentor someone during any game in which you are eligible to play. For example, if you have less than 1000 master points, there are many other games in which you could play with your Mentee if that should be more convenient for the two of you. The 1999er games are also a possibility for those of you with more than 1000 but less than 2000 master points. I would love for some of the newer Life Masters to participate this year. Remember those who helped you when you were getting started? Pay it forward....... Call me at 205-661-2369 or email email@example.com.
Oh, Oh, Oh, it’s Magic! Please Help Us Advertise Our 2020 Regional
Believe it or not, we are already making plans for the Magic City Regional during
the week of March 2-8, 2020, and you can help us spread the word. When you
go to a tournament, wear a button advertising our event, and take business cards
to give to people that you meet from other clubs. The cards and buttons are
located on the shelf that holds the pencil sharpener and timer. We have plenty of
cards to distribute and about 50 buttons for tournament-goers. In addition, let co-
chairs Martha Chitwood or Beth Stewart know if you are heading to a tournament
that will allow us to hang our banner. We’d love for you to take it.
Thanks for your help. It’s going to be a magical event!
Martha and Beth
Please arrive 15 minutes before game time to allow our directors enough time to effectively plan the layout so that we may begin playing at the scheduled hour. (If we begin on time, then we can finish in a timely manner.) Thank you!
We need YOU as a host at your favorite game. All games are in need of hosts, and the respective directors would appreciate having you on the host schedule. Check with the directors of the games in which you are interested in hosting, and let them know you want to volunteer. (Game hosts need to arrive a little earlier and be prepared to play with a person they have not met or played with before. Hosts are allowed a free play, and in the event a host is not needed that day the free game may be applied later.)
