SPECIAL TEAM GAME EACH MONTH!

                                        

SPECIAL SUNDAY TEAM GAMES

"Eight is Enough"
Players are either "3-point" players (2000+ Masterpoints), "2-point" players (500-2000 Masterpoints), or "1-point" players (less than 500 points).  No team of four can have more the EIGHT points worth of players, so the teams will be mixed.  This is a FUN event enjoyed by all and is held the last Sunday of the month.

"Handicapped" team games!

When the team match is created, the team with fewer masterpoints is assigned a handicap -- imps are added to their score!  It makes the results interesting, and "C" teams have won this event on a regular basis.  We are now having two handicapped team games per month.

Make plans to play on  Sundays!

WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE! CLICK HERE TO OPEN IT!

Our facebook page is new, and there isn't much on it yet.

I will use it for news and occasional announcements.  We can also use it to discuss interesting hands and bidding, and anything else bridge related.  We will NOT use it for political discussions, gossip, etc.  :-)   I think everyone understands why.  

I would especially love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.

If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits.  Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.
