  What's Happening at TBBC the Week of September 26th

CHARITY GAMES ALL WEEK AWARDING EXTRA POINTS!

LESSONS

This Monday, Sept 26, STEVE ASHE will continue teaching lessons on card play and bidding from 11:30-12:15 with an open game following at 12:30.

LARRY SULLIVAN continues his lessons at noon on Tuesdays prior to the 12:30 799 game.

MENTOR/MENTEE GAME

This Thursday, September 29th we will hold a MENTOR/MENTEE game.  We already have several pairs signed up to play but have Great mentors available for any mentee interested in playing.  Please contact Mark Smith at shotgun68@hotmail.com if you would like to play but need a mentor.  Please sign up on the back bulletin board if you plan to play.  As a reminder the cost is $12 paid by the mentee.  The game begins at 12:30 but plan to come a little early to go over your convention card with your partner.

JIM RELIHAN EMERALD LIFE MASTER CELEBRATION LUNCH

In recognition of JIM RELIHAN reaching 7500 points and making Emerald Life Master, TBBC will be holding a luncheon at 11:30 prior to the 12:30 game on Friday, September 30th.   Please come out to help us celebrate Jim’s fantastic achievement and join us for the lunch and open game.  Please sign up on the back bulletin board and let us know if you will be attending the luncheon.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS MEETING

Friday, Sept. 30th at 4:00 after the game we will hold our monthly Board of Directors meeting.  All meetings are open to any member who would like to attend.

SUNDAY SUPERVISED PLAY GAME

On Sundays there is a supervised Play Game for players with less than 20 MPs.  In this game you are able to ask questions during the bidding or the play of the hand.  A great way to get better at bridge.

TROPICAL STORM IAN

Of course, the schedule this week is pending what happens with TROPICAL STORM (SOON TO BE HURRICANE) IAN.  We will notify you via email if any game or event is cancelled or postponed due to the storm.  Any game cancellations will be posted on the website also.

On behalf of the BOARD OF DIRECTORS we wish our members of the Jewish faith a Happy New Year!

  TBBC Covid Policy

If someone in your household has Covid, the morning before you play you must test negative and you must wear a mask while at the club. 

You must wear a mask and continue testing until 5 days after the household member tests negative. If the household member continues testing positive after 5 days, you can stop testing and wearing a mask after testing and wearing a mask for 10 days.

In plain English the motion says that testing and wearing a mask can stop:

10 days after the household member's first positive test or 5 days after the household member has a negative test.

  New Cell Phone Policy

At the July 25th BOD meeting the TBBC Cell Phone Policy was changed.

There will be no penalty if a cell phone rings.

There will be a ONE Board penalty if a player answered their cell phone.

At the beginning of each game you will be asked to silence your cell phones.  Please do so there is not disruption to the game.
