Current Events

Swiss Teams on Monday Morning - January 21, 2019

Our new 299 game on Monday night is a great success.  We had 5 tables in the 299 game and 7 tables in the 0-20 game.  Thanks to all who came out.

ACBL Wide Jr. Fund Game -  Tuesday, January 22 12:00 p.m..   Extra $1 for non-members.

NEW - Beginning February 1 -  Mobridge Host Program – Guaranteed Partners

This program is designed to benefit our members, new players to the area and visitors to find a partner.  

This is how it works:    

  • Every club member needs to volunteer to Host 1-2 games per year.
  • You choose the game and the day that best suits your schedule.
  • On your designated day you will arrive 15 minutes prior to game time and be prepared to partner anyone who shows up without a partner.
  • If two people show up, then they play together and the host goes home.
  • If the Host is required to play, then they play for free and if they are not needed then they receive a Free Play to be used at another time.
  • To sign up to be a Host you can click on the website calendar for any game that has “Host wanted”.  
  • A window opens and you will need to sign in as a member.  Once you sign in your name will appear on the calendar as the Host for that game.  

Further details will be available soon but please feel free to start “Hosting” any game beginning February 1.

Don’t be shy we need members to volunteer now to host games in February.  

  • Current Membership - 450+
  •  Hosts Needed in February - 36
  •  Members Signed Up to Host - 4  (7 Games covered)

We have 29 games still needing Hosts for the month of February.   Thank you for your support!

John Rayner Tribute Game

The John Rayner Tribute Game has been scheduled for Wednesday, February 6th at 7:15 pm.  This year’s game has been changed and will pair Life Masters with Non-Life Masters.  The pairs must be new partnerships or pairs that have played together as part of the “Any game, any time,” mentoring program as long as they meet the LM/NLM criteria.  You can enter as an individual LM or NLM in which case we will match you with a partner.  

You can find more information on the web site or on the bulletin board.  The game will be limited to 48 pairs so please sign up ASAP. A sign-up sheet is on the club bulletin board.

Mentoring Program Update

Our Mentoring Program is showing great success.  We are, however, in need of more Mentors.  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.
