Release 2.19n

Week of November 18 – November 23

The November STAC is over, but not to worry.   If you are still looking for silver points, there will be another STAC from December 9 to 14.  

The games this week will run on the normal schedule.  The Friday evening game is the mentoring game, please sign up.

The annual Holiday Party held by the Southbay Unit 568 is going to be on Saturday, December 7 at the South Bay Bridge Club.  Lunch will be provided by the Unit at 11:30, and the pairs game will start at 12:30.  The game is a Unit Championship with extra points.  Reservations are required because space is limited.  Sign-up sheets are at the club on the table with all the other sign-up sheets.

Here’s a reminder about club closures for the week of Thanksgiving.  On Wednesday, November 27, the morning game will be played as usual.  The club will be closed, however, for the evening game;  this is the evening before Thanksgiving.  On Friday, November 29, the club will be closed all day.  The Saturday game will be held as usual.

See you at the club!


Thursday 5:30 Supervised Play

Coming up in December:  Thursday, December 5 will be the kickoff game of Mark Raggio’s supervised play sessions.  He will start at 5:30, and play will last about 2 hours.  The cost is $5.  This is a fantastic opportunity to play hands with someone right there to help correct bidding, play and defense problems.  If you want to improve your game, be sure to come.
