GOING INTO THE AUTUMN SEASON, HERE ARE THE UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENTS AT
BUILD BETTER BRIDGE CLUB
SEPTEMBER 24 – Lesson by MaryAnn on Suit Quality Test and its Many Applications
OCTOBER 1 – Lesson by Tom Flanders on Bridge Basics
OCTOBER 8 – We are very excited about this date. ACBL allows clubs to host local charity games if they have fulfilled the quota for unit charity games. We are pleased to sponsor a local charity game for the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation. Phil Cummins is working with us for this worthwhile cause. His son died of this disease. BBB wants to help. The club will have a taco supper at 5:30 and everyone is invited. The taco supper (several kinds of tacos with all the fixins, chips and salsa, many desserts) will cost $5 per person, but all the money will go to the charity. The charity will collect $1 per person for the game, but Phil and Karen Cummins have volunteered to pay this so the game itself won’t cost any extra. It will be sectionally tournament rated. Donations will be accepted and should be payable to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (tax deductible). For more information about this foundation go to www.theMMRF.org Part of the BBB philosophy is that we can benefit others through our favorite game.
OCTOBER 22 – Wacky Wednesday Day. What is wacky about this Wednesday? Come and find out. Each month we will offer some sort of wacky secret promotion. It’s all in our effort to keep bridge fun and friendly!
OCTOBER 29 – Lesson by MaryAnn and also Future Life Masters Day: All those ACBL members who are still working toward their Life Master status will be able to buy one, get one free. So, pair up with somebody and get a half price game and free lesson, too.
