Due to the lack of attendance at the Thursday Afternoon Game, the game is suspended until the fall. Watch this space for announcements, as there may be occassional games, such as during STaC week.
Please note that Nancy Wainer's Bridge Camp continues on the first Thursday of each month.
The 2017 Surf's Up Sectional is coming up in October. Mark your calendars with the dates --- October 21 and 22. Silver Points awarded for all events, which makes it a terrific opportunity to win these elusive points. The sectional returns to a terrific site, The Kirby School, in Harvey West Park near the Santa Cruz Costco. The sectional flyer may be accessed on our website by clicking here.
Between sessions on Saturday, Jim Slinger, Diamond Life Master, will provide a free lecture. If you need a partner, contact Lani Ray (831) 425-3544. Sandwiches will be available for purchase both days.
This sectional is dedicated to our friend Bill McIntosh, a long-time Club Owner in the Santa Cruz Bridge Center. If you would like to make a donation in Bill's name, please contact any Board member. Donations are tax-deductible; please make checks out to the Santa Cruz Bridge Education Foundation (SCBEF).
