Friday June 21 is The Longest Day.
In partnership with ACBL, NKBC will hold a fundraiser to benefit The Alzheimer's Association.
100% of all proceeds go to benefit The Alzheimer's Association, all your donations, all director fees, all ACBL fees, all of it.
Everyone of us has a relative or an immediate friend with Alzheimer's disease.
Each of us has seen this disease rob our family and friends of their lives.
We have to eliminate it.
On The Longest Day, NKBC will host three games (10:00, 2:00, & 6:30).
Entry fee for each of these special games is $5 (or play FREE all day if you write a $100 check to Alzheimer's Association).
We'll have food for you, raffles, and double points all day long.
Please come and be as generous as you can.
Join us for the fun, the food, and the fight against this disease.

July 10 is National Clerihew Day. Named after Edmund Clerihew Bentley, a clerihew is a humorous autobiographical poem. It must contain four lines, two rhyming couplets, AA/BB, a person's name in the first line, and then say something about the person. For example:
Sir Humphry Davy
He lived in the odium
Of having discovered sodium.
If you read your personal clerihew to us on Wednesday evening July 10, you'll get a chance at a FREE game.

Our annual Mentor-Mentee program runs from May through August.
In this program, 'more' experienced players are paired with 'less' experienced players. Pairs should try to play about twice a month over the period. Mentors should share their 'wisdom' ONLY in areas where the mentee has asked for advice. This 'wisdom' sharing should occur AWAY from the table.
If you would like to participate, but haven't yet been assigned, please see Greg.
Mentor-Mentee pairs may, of course, play together anytime. However, three games each month have been designated as special Mentor-Mentee games. At these games, official Mentor-Mentee pairs will play in the strata of the mentee.
Special Mentor-Mentee games for this year are:
