Weekly "Early Bird" Game Trial Extended Through December 

We are extending the trial of an "Early Bird" open game on Thursdays through December. It is a SHORT game, usually 18 boards, 20 max. The game starts at 9:30 am and has a goal of ending at 11:40. It has the same rating as the 11:30 am game that day and is held in the small room. If attendance warrants, it will become a regular Thursday game. NOTE: This game does not have a guaranteed partner.  

UNIT 207 2020 MENTOR PROGRAM
Submission deadline: December 13, 2019

The Mentor Program is designed for those with 0-70 master points, who have a desire to improve their bridge game and want to supplement classes and individual study. The program has been very successful in the past years and we are looking forward to a successful 2020 Program.

The goal of the Program is to facilitate the transition from social bridge to duplicate bridge. Being accepted in the Program is a one-time opportunity and those who are accepted as mentees will be asked to be mentors in the future. The Mentor is asked to serve as a resource of information and as a bridge buddy to help you become more comfortable at the duplicate bridge table.

The Mentor Program is designed to build skills over a 4 month time period beginning in January after the Mentor/Mentee luncheon and continuing through May. Unit 207 will pay the Mentor’s entry fees twice a month for the 4 month period. Mentees pay their own entry fees. Mentors and Mentees are encouraged to play twice a month at any club in Unit 207. There is no transferring of days from one month to another, i.e., if you can only play one time in March, you can’t add the missed day to another month.
