A big shout out to everyone who was involved in making our Longest Day fund raiser such a huge success. Special appreciation goes to Cindy Cagno and her team for organizing and preparing all the raffle baskets, door prizes and delicious food, Sue Becker for sponsoring it in lieu of her Monday night game, Kevin Phipps for volunteering to direct, and to all who came and played bridge and donated their time and money to this cause. According to the Bridge Bulletin," a handful of studies have already found a link between activities such as bridge and a reduced likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease. That may be why the ACBL considers it so important. After the final tally was done on money collected, it is fantastic news that we have surpassed our last years amount with a total of $3540. Donations will be still accepted from anyone who cares to give. Thank you all for a job well done!

Responder's Second Bid
If you are the responder to an opening bid, your next bid depends on your partner's (the opening bidder) rebid. If your partner's rebid is 1 NT, we as the responder need to direct the opening bidder. If the opening bidder's rebid is a suit, we as the responder need to further describe our hand.
If the opening bidder's rebid is 1 NT, they have 12 - 14 HCP - no singletons and no voids. You as responder become the director of the auction and the opening bidder is your puppet. You as responder ask the questions and determine the final contract.
If the opening bidder's rebid is a suit ( or a support double), our job as a responder is to describe our hand rather than to direct the auction.
Congratulations to All of Our StaC Game Winners

How to Triumph Like A Girl
Ada Limon - 2015
I like the lady horses best,
how they make it all look easy,
Like running 40 miles per hour
is as fun as taking a nap, or grass.
I like their lady horse swagger,
after winning. Ears up, girls, ears up!
But mainly, let's be honest, I like
that their ladies. As if this big
dangerous animal is also a part of
that somewhere inside the
skin of my body, there pumps
an 8-pound female horse heart,
giant with power, heavy with
Don't you want to believe it?
Don't you want to lift my shirt
the huge beating genius machine
that thinks, no, it knows,
it's going to come in first.
