BRIDGE DECK CLUB PLAYERS HAVE A 74.36% GAME

Ellie Goodrich and Bob Parlin had a fantastic score on Wednesday, July 5. Their score was submitted to the Sunshine Bridge News publication for listing on the 72% Club page in the next issue.

 

STAC WEEK – SECTIONAL TOURNAMENTS at CLUBS

On August 7, 9, and 11 we will have the opportunity to compete for silver points in our own club. STaC games cost an extra $2.00, but Sectionals allow you to earn silver points.

 

Considering it is summer time in Naples our July attendance has been excellent. We have had 6 to 7 tables nearly every day. Let’s all come out for these STaC games.  The more pairs who compete, the more masterpoints the winners earn.

 

EXTRA BLACK POINTS, NO EXTRA CHARGE

Our monthly Club Championship game will be on August 16.  At the July Club Championship we had 7 full tables. Ed Kemnitzer & Linda LaPrade had a 60.07% N/S game and earned 2.48 mp (OA).  George Bernstein and Rusty Ruff  had a 56.25% game and earned 1.40 mp (OA).

Bob Hudson and Richard Price had a 57.93% game and received 1.86 mp (OA) while Joan and Marvin Marion had a 55.55% game and received 1.05 mp (OA).

 

NORTH AMERICAN QUALIFYING GAMES

We will have another chance to win extra black & red points on August 21, 23, and 25 when our club will be holding qualifying games for the North American Championship Pairs Game.  Pairs who score 50% or better qualify for the next round at the Unit level.  Eventually the top Pairs from each of ACBL’s 25 districts will compete in the 2018 Spring NABC in Philadelphia.
