Welcome to Westwood Duplicate Bridge Club
STARDUST WEEK November 23–27

Please join us November 23–27 for STARDUST WEEK. All games award twice as many masterpoints as regular club games, and all awards are ¼ gold.

We will not have a game on Thanksgiving Day, so we’ll have STARDUST games Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:30 and on Monday evening at 7:00. Our Monday 10:30 game has two flights: open and 499er.

RealBridge takes online bridge to the next level, with built-in video and sound, bringing the true face-to-face experience online. We ran a week of free introductory games, and the feedback was almost all positive. There’s more information on our RealBridge page.

We’d like to run RealBridge games regularly, but we need your help understanding what times and game types you desire. Would you please click here and answer a few questions? Thank you.

Monday Evening Zoom Socials

Please join us after our Monday evening games to see and hear and chat with your friends. The game starts at 7:00 and end about 8:50. The social starts after the game and ends whenever. The Zoom link is https://zoom.us/j/7819297673. BYO. Masks not required. (We hope you’ll join us on Zoom whether or not you play in the game, but, of course, we hope you’ll play too. If you don’t have a partner, you can usually find one by going to the registration and clicking Partnership Desk at the right end of the line above the registration form.)

Leaving the American Legion Post

Friday, May 29, was bittersweet. After more than 50 years in the Westwood American Legion Post (anybody remember when Joe Vaas started holding games there?), we moved a truckload of furniture, equipment, and supplies into storage. (We left because the Post refused to honor the rent-abatement provisions in our lease.)

This is a new beginning for our club! We will open in a better facility as soon as it is safe and reasonable to do so.

Of course, none of us know when it will be “safe and reasonable”—the ACBL has canceled all turnaments through 2021 February—but we’re starting to plan right now. We’d love to hear your thoughts. Please tell us all about your dream bridge club!

Meanwhile, “see” you online!

Many thanks to our packing and cleaning crew, Tom Caragliano, Andrew Hanes, Stephanie Homolko, Christine Riviere-Homolko, Jan Schwaner, and Nathalie Tabor.
