Club Managers' Weekly Message - Week of September 16th

 

Members of the Palm Coast Duplicate Bridge Club:

The Board meets this Friday, September 20th at 9:30 AM for their regular meeting.  All Club Members are invited to attend.

ACBL International Fund month continues with our full schedule of games this week.  We'd like to encourage our 299er/499er players to also come to play on Wednesday or Friday.  It would be nice to see more players on those days.

We have a relatively quiet social calendar until our Halloween Party.  We have some time for that, and we'll keep you posted.

Our Fundraising drive and raffle has officially concluded for the year.  Tom Pinter was the last lucky winner of our grand prize.  Congratulations, Tom.  Also, many thanks to Howard for coordinating the event which has made such a difference to the financial well-being of the club.
