Most games this coming week are STaC games so you can earn lots of silver points. The table fee is $10 for STaC games. Check the SCBC calendar for details.
There are two Unit STaC games on Saturday, December 10. There is the Saturday 10A morning game and a Saturday afternoon game, starting at 2P. Note, there must be 5 or more tables to run a STaC game. Please sign-up at the SCBC or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The next 299er Unit Game is Saturday, December 17 at 10:30A, preceded by a FREE mini-lesson by Ken Llacera at 10A, extra masterpoints and great snacks. Come on in and join the fun!
Please sign up at the SCBC or by email to 299er Unit Game Sign Up. If you need a partner, indicate that in the email and we will try to arrange one for you.
Starting October 21, the Friday lunch charge for an entree, salad and a dessert is raised to $7. The cost for lunch was exceeding income; in order to continue delivering high quality pizza an increase in price was required.
Another change being implemented on a trial basis is collection of the game and optional lunch charges at the door. Hopefully this new process will speed the start of game and end the disruptions that occur when money is collected at the table.
Here's a couple of tips to make our game better and more pleasant for everyone:
The Unit Board of Directors wants to grow games at the SCBC, which benefits everyone. Growth often means there are newer players moving up to Open games. The Unit encourages everyone to Play Nice; you can read what "Play Nice" means by clicking here. Please treat all players with consideration and respect and have more patience with our newer players who are "moving up".
Below are some examples of commendable behavior, which, while not required, will significantly contribute to everyone's enjoyment of the game:
