Annual Recogition Game

Saturday, April 8 at 10:30A, the SCBC and Unit 550 members honor the 2016 Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney masterpoint winners. Please sign-up or email Unit 550 for questions, partners or to sign-up.

If there are 5 tables of NLMs, we will run a separate section for them. This is always a great game with lots of snacks provided by the Unit.

Thursday Game: NLM

The new format is based on Nancy's very popular Bridge Camp; A playing lesson at 10A and a game at 11A. The lesson and game is $10. You are welcome to just come for the game, which is the standard $8. If you can only make the lesson, it is $5. There will be a short lunch break but you must bring your own lunch. We will wrap up the session at approximately 2:15P.

The lesson focus is on Play and Defense. Ken Llacera, the instructor and game director, is a Gold Life Master, looks forward to sharing play and defensive insights with advancing players.

Please contact Ken with any question about the new format or to request a partner: (831) 426-4949; via email to Thursday Game.

6. Do not forget that your partner wants to win as much as you do (even though sometimes his bid or play was so bizarre that it caused you to have serious doubts).
