  Mentoring Game

Wednesday October 21 at 9:35 AM  
Reservation are a must!.
Mentors are limited in number so first sign-ups will get priority. Email Jeanne at Jeannesholl@gmail.com  to reserve or for questions.

Here is how it will work:

  1. Cost will be $5.00 with the mentee paying for the mentor. Total cost to mentee $10.00. 
  2. Mentees wishing to play must reserve with Jeanne by Wednesday October 14th.
  3. Mentees who will bring their own mentors must reserve with Jeanne by Friday October 16.

    3. Phone Number
  5. Mentees and Mentors will receive a confirmation of the reservation sharing each BBO Handle.
  6. Mentees should “follow” their mentor handle on BBO after receiving the reservation confirmation.
  7. We are asking that mentee and mentors be able to continue for at least 15 minutes after the game to work with each other on bids and hands.
  8. The mentor, in agreement with the mentee, will make the choice of how they wish to communicate after the game by phone, chat, email or Zoom, etc.

Day of Game:

  1. Mentees and Mentors will log in at 8:30 AM.
