Please check the online calendar for games scheduled on or near holidays (eg, Christmas, New Year's, etc.) The MGSC may not have games on these dates due to low attendance in past years.

Flight B & C IMP League
Opportunities for team play are limited in Unit 178. With D14 GNT District finals scheduled for the Twin Cities next May, the Minneapolis Grand Slam Club wants to provide Flight B and C players a "practice competition" where they can develop their IMP play strategy--where fighting for part scores, worrying about overtricks and undertricks, and whether sacrificing is right is less important than safely making the contracts you bid and finding a way to beat the contracts your opponents bid.
Flight B & C teams will compete in a complete bi-weekly round robin team event. Each bracket will have 5 teams so that play can be completed in a series of 4 weeks on Wednesdays that are not the Wednesdays that the Minnesota Bridge Association Board-A-Match club plays.
If there is sufficient interest a third or even fourth bracket of five is possible. Bronze & Ruby LMs could compete separately and Gold Rush teams could compete in two flights: 0-300 and 0-750. If the event is successful a second round in the spring to help teams gain additional practice before the district GNT finals is possible. ONLY THE FIRST FIVE REGISTERED AND PAID TEAMS ($80/tm) IN EACH BRACKET ARE GUARANTEED A SLOT IN THE EVENT. Make check payable to the Minneapolis Grand Slam Club. Checks can be given to the Twin City Bridge Center or mailed to Barry Purrington, 829 Overlook Place, Eagan, MN. Once registered you will be expected to field a team of 4 for each night of the event.
The event will conclude in a shorter time if at least 3, but fewer than 5 teams register. Teams will receive a refund if the event is not 4 sessions long.
