Announcing New Sanctioned Game

For the month of March, we will holding an additional sanctioned game on Wednesday afternoons at 1pm.  Come out and have some additional fun beginning March 1.

If this day and time is successful, we'll continue.

Did You Know?
If you want to browse though all the past issues of the Grand Slam News, click on "View in Browser" at the top of this email, you will see at the top left corner, "Past Issues". 
Cards Need TLC
Please give our cards some T.L.C. when pulling them out of the boards, snapping them onto the table (snapping also annoys some people) and then replacing them into the boards.  When they become bent, the dealing machine rejects them.  Thank you.
Call for a Secretary
Our secretary, Lynn Moon, has decided to step away from the board and on behalf of them, I would like to thank Lynn for all her years of voluntary service to the Midland Bridge Club.  She has been such an asset and we will miss her dearly.

So now we need a secretary and are asking for someone to step forward from the membership to make agendas and take minutes and distribute those minutes to board members for approval.  As a board member, the secretary also gets a vote on those important club decisions.

Email Vern Beacock ( or Wendy Smith ( or speak to any board member for more information.

Need A Partner?

This is a great tool, however, it only works if people use it.

Finding a partner could not be easier using our website, but its only good if members use it.  You will need to log in.  If you need to reset your password, passwords can be as simple as your birth year or even your ACBL number or your Bridgemate number.

Please excuse my terrible computer line drawing and printing, but here's a picture of the Find A Partner feature.  All you need to do is check a box under the PR column and click CONFIRM.

Zero Tolerance
Many years ago, our club agreed to a Zero Tolerance policy regarding bullying. The Zero Tolerance policy at the ACBL involves calling the Director, and the Director determines the penalty, from a warning to a trick penalty to an expulsion from the game.  This policy is to ensure a high comfort level for all members and players.

Remember that the comfort level of members and players, not only what is said directly to them, but what is said around them, especially what is said between the opposition.  If the opposition are arguing and lecturing each other, that is deteriorating the comfort level of everyone at the table.

The Midland Bridge Club board realizes at our small friendly Canadian-type club, no one wants to call the Director and make a scene.  However, anyone who feels they have been bullied at the table, even if only subtlety, should bring it to my attention as your Club Manager.  I will discuss the incident with the board and we will determine how to proceed.  We can avoid many incidents by remembering the following:
If no one asked you for advice, that means your advice is not wanted.
Keep any solicited advice to that small window of time between rounds.
