Special games

 

  FEBRUARY SPECIAL GAMES

 

STAC WEEK:  February 6 - 12.  Every regular game this week is a "Sectional Tournament At Club" game which will award silver points at the club level AND your score will be compared across unit 128 (most of FL) for possible bonus silver points!

 *Extra points, no extra money!*

**************************

STAC WEEK:  February 20 - 26.  Every regular game this week is a Charity Club C.hampionship that will pay extra points at the club level to the players.  A portion of the table fees is donated to national or local charities, but you pay the same price.
*Extra points, no extra money!*

***********************

UNIT CLUB CHAMPIONSHIPS!   These special games award significant extra points, and Unit 128 has scheduled two of them.

Feb 2 (Thursday) at 1PM and Feb 27 (Monday) at 1PM. 

***********************

SPECIAL SUNDAY TEAM GAMES!

On 2/5, the game will be "handicapped", which means that the lower-ranking team in each match receives an advantage.  This is always fun and exciting.

On 2/12, the team game will award SILVER points as part of our STAC week.

On 2/26, we will hold our monthly "Eight is Enough" team game.  "A" players are three points, "B" players are two points, and "C" players are one point.  Teams of four can have no more than eight player points per team, which makes for some interesting mixes!

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.
