♠ 6/13/21 OUR FIRST FACE TO FACE (F2F) GAME was a QUARTERLY CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP and went very well!!!
We play on Tuesdays in the Brunswick Forest Shopping Center at 1120 East Cutlar Drive. Plenty of free parking with some handicap spots very close to the venue. Start time is 12:45. Please click on the "About Us" button in the left menu column for more details about the location, fees, etc.
In June we are running four special events. We played our "Quarterly Club Championship" game on June 8th. Other special games in June are the Unit Upgraded Championship Game, an Alzheimer's Charity Game, and a NAPQ (North American Pairs Qualifying) Event. If you do well in the NAP game you will qualify for the District Finals in your stratum. Click on the "Leland Face to Face Calendar" button located in the menu column to see the Monthly Calendar.
STATUS of TUESDAY'S LELAND Virtual Game: We will keep that game running in parallel with our F2F game for a while to see how it fares. Some players may want to continue playing with their distant friends.
♥ OUR SE CAROLINA VIRTUAL LIMITED & OPEN GAMES WILL CONTINUE AND EVERYONE CAN PLAY IN THOSE GAMES. CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW FOR THE WEEKLY GAME SCHEDULE. LET'S MAKE OUR VIRTUAL GAMES MORE SUCCESSFUL -- 3 WAYS!!
1. Register early as this encourages others to register. Players should never leave what may appear to be a small game since the table count often increases quickly due to procrastinators who register in the last few minutes. (If the game fails, there is always time to register for the next game).
2. If you want to play in any SE Game but have no partner please complete the GREEN "Request Partner" button below a day or two before the game. You should get several responses from others needing a partner.
3. If you decide at the 11th hour that you wish to play in a virtual game but have no partner, just add your name to the Partnership Desk and you will still be able to play.
♦ Now everyone is Guaranteed to Play: Want to play in any SE game but have no Partner? NO WORRIES Anyone that signs up at the partnership desk can play if they want. Sepop is a surrogate player that we add to the partnership desk before game time. If no one is available to be your partner, then a few minutes before the game starts you can invite Sepop to be your partner. Once the game starts, you will see Sepop magically turn into a robot. It is your choice -- play with a robot (or request a live person) or not play!
RANK ADVANCERS AND RACE LEADERS: Congratulations to Ron Patch, who has reached Silver Life Master Status, and to Sherron Herdtner, who is now a Life Master, and kudos to Mike Helton, a new resident of Leland. Mike just joined the ACBL and is leading both Rookie Races. And congratulations to those Leland Club Members who are leading numerous 2021 masterpoint Races in our Unit!! All of our Rank Leaders and Rank Risers are shown in the Center Boxes.
Leland & SE Carolina Open Stacked Games: Masterpoint awards are much higher in all of our Open games due to our ability to stack each of our Open games! We count the # of tables in Limited Games held in the same session and add that table count to the open game. Example: If we get a total of 20 tables in two limited games and 10 in the Open game, ACBL will consider our Open game to have 30 tables. The two winning pairs in that Open Game will earn 4.5 Master points.
