Unit 421 Newsletter

Unit 421 Newsletter April 2022

The board talked about the need for better communication. This newsletter is an outcome of the discussion. The monthly newsletter will have information about the club, a few bridge tips, and a calendar of the upcoming games for the month. Partnerships on Thursday: The board members will continue to provide a spare person on Thursdays to ensure everyone has a partner. If you are unable to find a partner, let someone on the board know and they will help you find a partner. The spare person will be the last person to get partner and if they aren't needed, they will leave or read a book. However, to start the Thursday game on time, we will enforce the requirement that players need to arrive no later than 12:15. If you arrive after that time without a partner, you will probably not get one. Rod Southworth will provide a new phone listing of all the club members. If you need to find a partner, please start with the phone list.

Bridge etiquette (gleaned from ACBL) 1. Be nice, smile. 2. Don't give lessons to anyone at the table. 3. Keep your voice even and the gestures consistent when making bids or playing the hands. Don't snap your cards or make any unusual movements to get your point across. Be ethical. 4. When on lead against a contract, LEAD and then write down the contract on your scorecard. Same thing for dummy, lay your hand down and then write down the contract. 5. Don't discuss the hands until the round is over. 6. Avoid playing with the bidding box. Decide on your bid before touching the box. 7. Avoid taking a card out of your hand before it is your turn

The following information should help protect players from getting sick while playing bridge.  ♠   ♣ 

Remember to practice good hygiene. Washing your hands often and thoroughly or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer will go a long way, and if you’re sick, you should stay home to protect others.  You should cough or sneeze into a tissue and then discard it as soon as possible.  Avoid touching your face as germs are easily transmitted that way.  If you have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, you should wear a mask to protect others.

 

DUPLICATE BRIDGE IN CHEYENNE - updated April, 2022

In July, we will have and Eight is Enough Team game on the 7th and a NAP Qualifying game on the 14th.  August will also have a NAP game on the 18th and another Eight is Enough Team game on the 25th.  For the Eight is Enough team game, the team can have a maximum of 8 points - where A players (>900 MPs) are worth 3 points, C players (<200 MPs) are worth 1 point, and B players (200-899 MPs) are worth 2 points.  This keeps the game balanced so every team has a good chance at winning.

Let's have more players at all of our games - partners guaranteed.  Our Indial Paintbrush Sectional will be Oct 1-2 in Cheyenne with a session just for players with less than 200 MPs (more later).

Thursday Afternoon Bridge 

The cost for Thursday games will be $3 for each player, including the club championship games, NAP games, and Eight is Enough Team games..  Note: some special games with extra points may cost everyone $5 and will be announced on this website.

It is important to show up by 12:15, or have a partner there by then, so we can know how to set up the game.  Players who are late may not be allowed to play!

Food will not be provided by the unit.  Water/coffee will be available.  Everyone is expected to help putting away bridge supplies and card tables/chairs, etc. after each game.

Game results will be posted on ACBL Live shortly after the game is completed.  Knights of Columbus bar (Casey's Club) opens at 4pm – players are encouraged to socialize there.

You will be able to use this website to help find a partner, once you have registered as a member.  Thursday game results are posted on this site, left side under Results.

Tuesday and Friday games are run by the Wild West Club and may have different rules and procedures for play.
