WIN SILVER POINTS IN OPEN AND 0-299 SECTIONS AT FORT WAYNE SECTIONAL MAY 3 – 5

There’s fun for everyone at the Fort Wayne Sectional Tournament May 3 to 5—and silver points for winners in both Open and 0-299 MP sections! Open and 0-299 MP games will be held at the club at 10 AM and 3 PM on Friday (May 3) and at the same times on Saturday (May 4).

The cost is $10 per game, but players in any morning 0-299 game play FREE the afternoon of the same day. In the Open games, there are two ways to win. The games are played and scored as regular pair games, but each pair will also be given a team score (see flyer) and pairs receive whichever are the higher number of masterpoints earned.

On Sunday (May 5), any team can play in an all-day Swiss Team game starting at 10 AM. The $30 cost includes the double session and a $10 lunch to be eaten during a short mid-day break.

Check out the Sectional flyer and please sign up at the club to play. We need your participation to keep having a Fort Wayne Sectional! Please consider also signing up to bring hospitality snacks for any game. If you need a partner for a game or a pair for the Swiss team game, contact Gary Chaney (419) 438-2175 or chaneygary47@gmail.com

SIGN UP FOR THE APRIL 18 SWISS TEAM GAME

Plan your team for the Swiss team game April 18 (1 PM), then sign up at the club with your team names. If you need a pair to complete your team, contact Joe Kohne (jkohne3@comcast.net or 260-449-9444). (See rules/player ranks.) The May Swiss team game, played under the same rules, is on Monday, May 20 (1 PM).

 

INVITE YOUR BRIDGE PLAYING FRIENDS TO THE JUNE 19 'LONGEST DAY' MORNING GAME

Please invite your bridge playing friends to a light breakfast (8:30 AM) and rubber bridge game (9 AM) at our Longest Day event to support the Alzheimer's Association on Wednesday, June 19. The cost for both is $10, $5 of which will be returned as prizes for individual winners.

Players can also participate in the raffle and silent auction going on that day, and new players will be given a free pass to any 0-299 MP duplicate game (assuming eligibility) at the club. Even if you'll be playing in the 1 PM game, you can also play in the morning to help our club raise more than the $12,600 we gave last year for the Alzheimer's Association's research and care services. Details here.
