MOBridge Newsletter - February 17, 2019

Please show your membership card when you pay cash or purchase a new 10 play card.

Emergency Contact
We would like to invite all members of our bridge family to provide an emergency name and number that we could contact on your behalf if you were to have an accident or become ill while at the club.  This may be especially helpful for those living alone.  Any information volunteered will be kept confidential and will only be used in case of emergency.  Forms will be available at the club by February 21.

Current Events
John Rayner Seminar – February 17 10:30 am – sign-up sheet on Bulletin Board

Swiss Teams - Monday Morning, February 18

Family Day Open Game – February 18 1:30 pm - (Regular Morning & Evening game)

John Rayner Tribute Game -  Rescheduled to Wednesday, March 13 at 7:00 pm 
The structure will be the same – new pairs, Non-Life Masters with Life Masters, mentoring pairs – all 3 criteria will have to be met.

New sign-up sheets will be posted next week.  You can enter as a pre-arranged pair or solo and we will find an appropriate partner for you.

Non-perishable food donations will be accepted on behalf of the Red Cross Food Bank.

Mobridge Host Program – Guaranteed Partners
This program is designed to benefit our members, new players and visitors to find a partner.  

The Hosting program has proven to be a great success.  After just two weeks, we have provided games to 25 single players who otherwise wouldn’t have come out to the club or would have had to go home without playing.  February is nearly full but we have lots of Hosting opportunities available in March.  If you are having difficulties signing up send us an email or ask your Director for assistance.

Upcoming Seminars
Sunday, February 17 – 10:30 a.m.  Special Seminar with John Rayner – “Fighting It Out”

Monday, February 25 – 1:30 p.m.   “Beat the Rebid Blues” - Danielle Gosselin - SOLD OUT!

Check the bulletin board for upcoming seminars.

Technology Update -  Call the Director feature added to Bridge Mates
You can now call the Director from your table without yelling “Director Please” and raising your hand.  Once the bridge mates are activated, the second button from the right on the top row will alert the Director to come to your table.  This feature minimizes the disruption to the room and especially helps those playing in the back room to get quick assistance.  
(*Please Note: Once the button is pushed you need to push the second “Call” button to activate.)

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.
