The walls came tumbling down and the floor is leveled. Waiting for permits. This picture is the room from the entry door toward the bathrooms at the rear. Once permits are in place, the crew will remove the remaining kitchen wall and begin to install the ceiling, lights, sprinklers and electrical outlets, which they expect to be done by 2/15. In the meantime, your Board of Directors has firmed up our schedule, arranged training for assistant directors, and is organizing our volunteer directors and teachers. We have ordered supplies and furniture so we are ready to move in as soon as the space is finished. We will have games four days a week beginning at 1:00 p.m., with an Open Game on Monday and Wednesday, a 799 game on Tuesday and a 999 game on Friday. Our Teaching Staff plans to have classes available on different subjects six mornings a week. Thursdays will be available for special games unless there is demand for a regularly scheduled game that day. If all goes well, we hope to have some games during the week of February 18, with our Grand Opening Week, featuring free lessons and special prizes, in March after the Regional. There will be a $7.00 fee for every game, adding an extra dollar only when charged by ACBL for special games. Flexibility is our watchword, and changes will be made as needed.
Check back weekly for the latest on our progress.

A great club requires great directors for smooth, effortless games. We offer each director an assistant who will set up the game, sign in the players and collect the money, post the scores and respond to complaints about the results.
