MOBridge Newsletter - November 18, 2018

Monday AM Swiss Teams is a CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP this week.  Extra points and no extra fees.

Please notify the club and/or Director if you have any allergies or medical conditions that you feel we should be aware of.  Our first priority is to create a safe environment for all of our members and guests.

Congratulations to all those who took the Director’s course this weekend.  

We have a COPC (Canadian Open Pairs Championship) qualifying game on Tuesday, December 4 and Saturday, December 8.  CNTC qualifying games (team) will be held on Sunday, December 9 and Sunday, January 13.

Back by popular demand.  0-20 Swiss Teams on Monday, December 17.

The Name Tags have arrived.  Please look for yours on the back wall (posted by first name).  The balance of the name tags will be available by the end of the week.
 
Dates for our January/February lesson sessions are posted on our website.  Again, a reminder that if you recommend someone take any of our Intro/Beginner Lessons/Courses, you get 2 Free Plays upon their payment.

A reminder that we are now taking MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS FOR 2019.  This, as usual, covers you from up to and including December 31st, 2019.  And again, there will be a name drawn from the Early Renewals for 2 Free Plays.  Please renew whenever you can over the next 2-month period, so as we are not bombarded with renewals at the beginning of the year.  And don’t forget to get your MEMBERSHIP CARD … if you’ve renewed before the Membership Cards came in, collect yours at the office.  

Our CHRISTMAS PARTY GAME is on December 1st .  Game time will be 7:00 pm with Mix and Mingle starting at 6:00 pm.  Sign-up sheets are posted at the Club.  We are also looking for people to volunteer to help decorate the club and to help set-up and clean-up after the party.

We are noticing more early arrivals at the games, and many, many are in, paid, and at their seats by the 5-minute mark.  We thank you … this helps the Directors tremendously.

MENTORING PROGRAM UPDATE   Our Mentoring Program is showing great success.  We are, however, in need of more Mentors.  We’ve had great positive feedback for the Mentees who have been enjoying their games with their Mentors, thus far.  Entry forms (and all pertinent info) is posted at the Club.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Mentoring Coordinator at mentoring.program@mobridge.club for answers.

All you helpers, who help clean up at the end of a game, and make sure your playing area is cleared, the Directors want you to know that it’s appreciated and send you a big THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  We can’t thank you enough!

TO ALL OUR BRIDGE FRIENDS IN RECOVERY … GET WELL SOON.
WE HOPE TO SEE YOU BACK AT THE TABLE SOON.
