0-200 MP PAIRS PLAY FREE THURSDAYS IN AUGUST

If you and your partner each have 200 MP’s or less, you can play FREE in the club’s Thursday     1 PM games during August and possibly longer! This game was started so experienced players ("mentors") could partner with players eager to improve their game ("mentees"). Now we’re also encouraging pairs in which both partners have 0-200 MP's to come and play—for FREE!

Here’s the deal:

  • Al pairs where each partner has 0-200 MP’s play FREE in August!
  • Scores will be stratified so you can win MP’s by beating other 0-200 MP pairs, or win even more if you score well against mentors playing with their mentees.
  • To the degree possible, 0-200 MP pairs will sit E/W with mentor-mentee pairs N/S
  • If you wish, when mentors are playing at your table, you can ask their advice on bidding or play to help improve your game.

Any questions? Contact Director Bob Enyeart at 260-438-8571 or Enyeart.Bob@gmail.com.

WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!

The FWDBC has reopened for all regular games as has Cedar Creek. In both clubs, all players must be fully immunized against COVID-19 to attend games. The details below are in line with current CDC guidelines and protocols:

  1. Every player upon his/her first return to the Bridge Center will be required to affirm that he/she has been fully immunized against COVID-19. People are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, like the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, like Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
  2. Masks and social distancing are optional, but players may want to continue with these when using the bathrooms or walking in the parking lot.
  3. Hand sanitizer, gloves, and sanitizing wipes will be available for any player wishing to use them.
  4. Until further notice, no food will be served. Players may bring their own snacks.
  5. Bottled water, soda, and coffee will be available for purchase.
  6. Please do not attend a game if you have been exposed to someone with COVID within the past two weeks, or if you are feeling ill yourself in any way.
