FWDBC AND CEDAR CREEK GAMES NOW OPEN

WELCOME BACK EVERYONE!

The FWDBC has reopened for all regular games as of May 4, with Cedar Creek doing so as of May 8. 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. All players must be fully immunized against COVID-19 to come to the games. 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. That means that to play on Tuesday, May 4, you must have received your final dose/shot by April 20.
    2. Every player upon his/her first return to the Bridge Center will be required to affirm that he/she has met the requirement listed in #1 above.
    3. Masks and social distancing are optional, but players may want to continue with these when using the bathrooms or walking in the parking lot.
    4. Hand sanitizer, gloves, and sanitizing wipes will be available for any player wishing to use them.
    5. The Club has purchased multiple air purifiers to assist with the ventilation in the playing area.
    6. Until further notice, no food will be served. Players are welcome to bring their own snacks.
    7. Bottled water, soda, and coffee will be available for purchase.
    8. 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.

DO YOU NEED HELP FINDING A PARTNER?

The Board realizes that the pandemic may have been disruptive of some partnerships and of bridge routine. To help in these situations, any player who is searching for a partner for any of the weekly games is asked to please email Gary at chaneygary47@gmail.com or text him at 419-438-2175 with your name and the sessions for which you need a partner. For example: Mickey Mouse needs a partner for the Tuesday 0-499 game and the Saturday Open game. Mickey would email Gary with his name and the Tuesday 0-499 and Saturday Open requests. Gary will compile a list of all players and their requests, then send it to the Club’s player list so each player can make his/her own contacts to establish a partnership. The directors will not be responsible for making partnerships. Also, please note that we can no longer provide guaranteed partners for the Tuesday 0-499 game at this time.
