The 6PM lessons on Wednesday review and reinforce the basic conventions covered last year. Besides the lecture, there's handouts and quizzes to sharpen your game.
The game is open to pairs whose total masterpoints are less than 200. This allows advancing players to mentor newer players.
If you need a Partner or have a question, contact us by email to email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you at the tables!
Trying to teach or give advice during a game is not effective and might even be seen as a violation of ACBL rules (see Law 74.A.2, Etiquette of Word and Action: A player should carefully avoid any remark or action that might cause annoyance or embarrassment to another player or might interfere with the enjoyment of the game.)
Please, if you are sick or just feeling ill, please stay home so you don't pass it on.
Here's a couple of tips to make our game better and more pleasant for everyone:
