FRIDAY MORNING WORKSHOP

Friday’s topic is “Modern Uses of the Cuebid”. Becoming familiar with the most common usages of the cuebid will improve your bidding and make you a much more flexible bridge player. You can bid more (and who doesn’t like that?) and you will also win more! The workshop will begin at 9:30 Friday morning and the cost is $10.

NEXT BEGINNER CLASS PART1?

Interest in learning bridge has never been greater.  We have offered two part 1 classes already this spring and once our current part 2 class ends, we are planning to take the summer off. 

Look for our next class to begin this September.  

ACADEMY LOANS

The North Orlando Bridge Academy is seeking new loans to help pay-off the purchase price of the equipment, furniture, supplies and goodwill it purchased from the LLC. These loans will pay 5% annual interest with semi-annual interest payments. It is the intention of the Board to be out of debt as soon as possible so these loans will be paid off within 3 years (or on the lender’s request if that comes first).  Loans in increments of $1000 will be accepted on July 1st.    If interested in making 5% interest on your spare funds, e-mail or tell one of the Academy Board members (David Loeb, Jeanne Henderson, Glen Martin, Susan Averill, Marsha Wicks, Stan Goodman, Ted Callaghan) or Perry Poole.

MEMBERSHIP ROSTER

Did you know that if you are an NOBC Member, you may have access to a Membership Roster with member’s rank, master points and phone numbers?  It is available on our website under the Membership button.  [Note: You must have a valid e-mail address on file with us to access this.  If you don’t, send us an e-mail and we will add it.]  The first time that you use the "Members Only" area, enter your e-mail address and click [Set/Reset Password].  It will send you an e-mail allowing you to establish a password with which to log in.

To view the list, you must log in and click on the “Member List” tab.  You can search the list or scroll through all the names.  Click on the Account tab on this page to update your information or if you wish to opt out of displaying your information in the list.  We encourage all members to review and correct their information as it easily becomes out of date.

COMING WITHOUT A PARTNER

Our bridge center guarantees a partner for any player who arrives without a partner but here is how it works: A player will first be paired with another player who also arrives without a partner. The next pairing will be with a designated “Fill-in” player. As a final option, the director may be available to play*. The director will make these assignments. Every effort is made to establish a partnership that considers all relevant circumstances. However, any player who is paired with another player, but refuses the partnership forfeits the guarantee of a playing partner. 

*Note: When there are two large sections (over 15 tables total in both sections), the director is not permitted to play. This has been our policy since we began the club.
