The Monday Afternoon, Wednesday Evening 99er and the Friday Open games award triple points this week!
Due to the success of the July 299er Unit Game, the second Unit Game of each month this year will be limited to 299ers. The next 299er Unit Game is Saturday, October 29 at 10:30A, with a mini-lesson by Nancy Wainer, 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 pizza, 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:
