Welcome to Sedona Bridge Center
Weekly New 299er FtF Game

Hi Bridge Enthusiasts

I have some VERY GOOD NEWS for you.  Starting November 3rd, and each Wednesday thereafter, there will be a 299er Novice game offered as a separate section from the Open game scheduled for the same day.  This will take the place of the “old” Thursday game. In other words, there will be two different games taking place in two separate areas of the Elks bridge room.  The “Novice” game will have fewer boards with more time allowed to play each board. You will have your own Master Point awards and will not have to compete with the more skilled players. As time progresses, depending on interest as well as director availability, the Thursday 299 er game could be reinstated. But in the meantime, this is a wonderful alternative.  Time will tell on that decision.

I hope you will join us on Wednesdays at 1 pm for a fun day of bridge.

Darryl and Marsha's Sister-In-Law Passes Away

Darryl and Marsha have lost their beloved sister-in-law, JoAnn Helton.  She succumbed to a struggle with Alzheimer's.  Darryl and Marsha recently drove to Mississippi to provide support to Darryl's brother and family.  In a matter of a few weeks, she passed away.  Please keep Marsha and Darryl, as well as Darryl's brother and his family in your thoughts during this sad time.

 

George Welsh Joins the Club Director Ranks

Once Monthly 199er Games Paused

The Sedona Bridge Club Board has authorized the addition of one monthly game day for those under 200 points. It will be held once a month once the COVID Pause has completed and new Directors are available.  The format will begin with a Bridge Workshop on the same day starting at 11 am. The Workshop will include a free 30-minute lesson and additional time to play hands with assistance from more advanced player(s). Watch the calendar for future dates for this fun activity.  The Bridge Workshop will not be held in September or October, or possibly future months, until the Club resumes FtF game and has Director coverage. Look for more information regarding 199er games in the near future. Players can also take advantage of the evening District-level 99er Nightclub games in the BBO Virtual Club area as well as our Sedona Open games in BBO Virtual Clubs.

Sedona Bridge Club Online Play via BBO

The Sedona Bridge Club is providing online play via Bridge Base Online (BBO). A recent survey provided guidance for changing the times of BBO Online games.  They will be held Tuesday and Friday at 11 am.  Thursday game will be held at 1 pm.  These changes begin the week of October 11th.   Week-end games during scheduled enhanced ACBL games will also begin at 1 pm. All games are unrestricted except for the first and second Thursdays, which are "Pro Am" games.  "ProAm" games require at least one member of each pair to have less than 500 masterpoints. See BBO News area for ACBL special event schedule. Please note:  all of these changes in game times will be evaluated over the coming months to determine if they meet the needs of our members.  If you have additional thoughts, please contact Jackie Haugen at jackie_haugen@yahoo.com
