Because of summer travel and other factors, both beginning and intermediate bridge classes have been suspended indefinitely
Many club players use "stolen bid doubles" when partner opens 1NT and RHO interferes. Suppose partner opens 1NT and RHO overcalls 2♦. Playing stolen bid doubles, responder doubles to transfer the opening 1NT bidder to hearts. According to the April 2018 ACBL Bridge Bulletin, the call of "double" must be alerted by the 1NT bidder. The 1NT bidder does not say "transfer". As with all alerts, no explanation of the alert is given unless the next person to call requests an explanation.
In August, 2016, the Sedona Bridge Center Board of Directors voted 7-0 to implement a club policy that prohibits the useage of perfumes or scented after-shaves or lotions when attending our club.
Some people have an extreme sensitivity to fragrances (colognes or perfumes). Because duplicate bridge requires players to be in close proximity to each other, individuals who suffer from fragrance-related reactions cannot avoid those who are wearing them. Among the commonly reported symptoms are intense headaches or breathing related problems. For those individuals, the issue is much more serious than simply disliking a particular smell - it is a real health problem.
We ask our members to understand this issue and to adhere to our new club policy.
