SCBC Annual Recognition Game

Saturday, April 21 at 10A, the SCBC and Unit 550 members honor the 2017 Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney winners. This is an extra point game. If you need a partner email us at Recognition Game.

There will be a separate section for 299ers if there are a minimum of 10 pairs; so tell your friends! This is always a terrific game; the Unit will be providing sandwiches and salad.

Making Our Game Better

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:

  • Arrive at least 10 minutes before game time
  • Check your cell phone before the game starts and turn it off or on silence
  • Make your lead before recording the contract
  • Delay any discussion of the previous hand until you have a break or after the game

One of our newer players adds these points:

  • Call the Director, rather then trying to resolve a problem
  • Allow the Director to assess the siuation and explain the ruling
  • Bid and play in tempo so as not to give unauthorized information
  • Enter the score in Bridgemate instead of "chatting" about the hand with partner or opponents
