MOBridge Newsletter - December 16, 2018

Holiday Schedule

  • Monday December 24th --> Open - Morning Game --> Closed Evening
  • Tuesday December 25th --> Closed
  • Monday December 31st --> Open - Morning Game --> Closed Evening
  • Tuesday January 1st --> New Years Day Game @ 1:00 pm --> Closed Evening

Let us help with your Christmas shopping.  We have a good selection of bridge books available for sale at the club.

Our Mission Statement has been installed on the wall above the donor plaque.

We have installed programmable thermostats to control the new HVAC units.  This will help us maintain a more comfortable playing environment as well as helping us to reduce our energy consumption.

We will be introducing a new 0-299 game on Monday night starting on January 7, 2019.  This game will run in parallel with our existing 0-20 newcomers game.  The game is a direct result of feedback we received from our annual survey and gives newer players another game opportunity, especially for those who are still working.  Please plan to come out and support your club.

We have had a great response from members for empty egg cartons.  The Red Cross appreciates your generosity.  Please continue to drop off your empty cartons in the box located in the classroom.

Tuesday Afternoon and Evening games this week will be Member Appreciation games.  Extra points and no extra fees.

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

We will be placing a new order for name tags before the end of the year.  Please let the Director know if you are missing your name tag or if you would like to purchase a replacement.
 
Dates for our January/February lesson sessions are posted on our website.  Again, a reminder that if you recommend someone to take any of our Intro/Beginner Lessons/Courses, you get 2 Free Plays upon their payment. Rusty Bridge will be offered on Monday evenings for those who have played before and would like a refresher.

Housekeeping

  • Winter will soon be upon us and with the cold weather comes the snow and salt.  We will put down extra runners but we need your help in minimizing the snow and salt that gets tracked into the club.
  • We have had all of the chairs in the club cleaned this week. 

The Directors do their best to start and end on time.  With large games, multiple sections and different movements that is not always achievable.  In planning the rest of your day, please allow a buffer of at least 15 minutes after the scheduled end time before planning your next activity.  As always, please plan to be registered and at your seat at least 5 minutes before game time to enable the Director to set up the game and start on time.

A reminder that we are now taking MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS FOR 2019.  This, as usual, covers you from up to and including December 31st, 2019. Please renew your membership before the end of the year in order to be eligible for the draw for two free games.

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.
