A Couple of Items

Stardust Week has been extended by two days! That means there’s still plenty of time to win bonus masterpoint® awards in the Virtual Clubs on Bridge Base Online.
All club games held in Virtual Clubs this coming Monday and Tuesday (September 28-29) will be counted as Stardust Week games. Don’t miss your chance for gold points and beyond!

Points earned from any Virtual Club games this past Monday and Tuesday (September 21-22) will still be honored. Two days are being added to Stardust Week because some players may have missed their “golden opportunity” due to a technical issue.




We wanted to give you a heads-up on a great deal that only comes "once in a blue moon"!

Starting this Saturday, September 26th, there will be 3 games hosted on Bridge Base Online under the direction of the great Howard Christ. The biggest news is that they are only $3!  You do have to be an ACBL member to play in them, but that is the only requirement.

We are trying out 3 different times ot see which times would be best for all our members. You can vote by playing in the game!

The games start at 10 AM, 2 PM and 6:30 PM.  Get your partner and play (or if you are missing a partner, you can be paired up with another single - or even a robot if you desire!)

Guaranteed Partner

The “Guaranteed Partner” program is up and running.  We need 2-3 volunteers for first, third, and fourth Tuesdays and a volunteer for the third Wednesday.  I am delighted with the level of participation!  Remember, if you need a partner for Tuesday or Wednesday post the request on the web site first; still in need, come to the game and you will be able to play.
