Hoping all of our players are safe and healthy!

We understand that the Peggy Brown Building is still closed, and the future of duplicate bridge games is uncertain at this time.

We will let you know when anything changes.

As of now (May 28th), there are no clubs open in the USA or Canada (as far as I know...).  There is a lot of conversation about how to open safely when it is time.   Elsa and Carolyn have been carefully washing all the cards and boards.   That
won't do anything to protect us from Covid-19, but it will eliminate many of those other pesky germs and bacteria.

Some ideas to consider are:   (1) using tablets (iPads) instead of cards so we won't have to touch something somebody else
has touched, (2) constructing Plexiglas screens that go diagonally across the table in each direction to prevent droplets
from reaching us, (3) having no communal food, (4) shortening the game by using fewer boards; (5) taking the temperature
of everyone coming into the room.

The ACBL has asked each club to give it two-week's notice before re-opening.

We'll post information here when we know how we will proceed.

Take good care.

Hugs to you all!  
 

Marti and Bob
