Special Thanks to Jim Evans for his great work producing this!
ON-LINE RESERVATIONS: This was always a work in progress and was intended to compliment our Club. Please read this important announcement on this from our Board President:
The Board of Directors has decided to suspend use of the electronic component of reservations until such time as we have identified a more user friendly and effective application which is both compatible with our web-site and easy to use for both you, our Members, and the Directors who must manage it. We all are familiar with reservation systems, whether for hotels, rental cars, restaurants, tennis courts or golf tee times. To date we have not been able to identify a similarly functional option for bridge. Accordingly, we have been using the limited capabilities of our web-site. The desired results have not occurred, and have in fact created more confusion than the previous telephone call-in option. Line-ups out into the hall have continued and missed reservations have caused ill-will. Be assured we will continue to search for alternatives that work for us all.
Effective September 1st, we will not be honouring the on-line reservations for MObridge … In the meantime, they will be honoured, but please take this time for the transition to the call-in and in-person reservations at the Club.
Keep using the "PARTNER REQUEST" option in our Members' Section...it works!!! Many members have found partners here.
All games this week (except for Tuesday and Wednesday games) are Club Championship Games - Extra points but no extra $$$. Monday morning game is Swiss Teams this week.
Keep keeping your eye out for TEAM LEAGUE (October 10th start-up) info … it’s coming! Team League was a great success last year and we hope to make it even better this year. Working on the Team League will be Martin Hunter, Jon Turner and Paul Inglis. If you have any questions, feel free to speak with them, or send an e-mail to the Club … firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are still seeing lipstick on mugs after they come out of the dishwasher. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE... if you get lipstick on your mug, wipe it off before placing it in the sink or dishwasher. Also, please empty all mugs and glasses before placing them in the sink or dishwasher.
WE CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BE AT YOUR SEAT 5 MINUTES BEFORE GAME TIME. FOR GAME SET-UP AND STARTING ON TIME, IT IS CRUCIAL. YOUR LATE ARRIVAL AFFECTS THE WHOLE ROOM. ALSO KNOW THAT THERE ARE MOVEMENTS THAT CANNOT BE CHANGED IF YOU ARRIVE LATE.
AND PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SLOW PLAY
AFFECTS THE WHOLE ROOM.
PLEASE KEEP YOUR PLAYED BOARDS ON YOUR SIDE TABLE. THIS ALLOWS THE RECEIVING TABLE TO COLLECT THEM WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OF YOUR PLAY, SHOULD YOU BE RUNNING BEHIND. AND PLAYERS SHOULD NOT BE INTERRUPTING PLAY TO ASK FOR BOARDS … IF THE ROUND IS CALLED AND YOU NEED BOARDS WHICH ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE, PLEASE CALL THE DIRECTOR.
Our website is updated with our October sessions (which is now just around the corner). January/February sessions will be posted in September or thereabouts. Again, a reminder that if you recommend someone take any of our Intro/Beginner Lessons/Courses, you get 2 Free Plays upon their payment.
Remember that the corner table by the front door does tend to be cooler. We have players that love this and other players, not so much.
Please notice our “POP CAN TAB” container at the Club.
If you can, please remove your TAB before placing your can in the Recycle Bin. The collection of these tabs goes towards wheelchair purchases … and apparently many have been purchased this way. A little goes a long way.
