Instant Matchpoint Game:

Another special game in October will the the Instant Matchpoint Game.

This is becoming more popular as it includes a book with analysis by a major player.
Every player gets a booklet with all the hands, so we need to get a count on how many to order.
It will be held on a Friday, our busiest day! 

We will take signups via email. Please click the day below.

We will be limiting the field to a max of 48 pairs, so let us know as soon as possible to hold your spot!

Partnerships:

SLO:

Please be certain to email Don Alderman directly for all partnership requests for SLO.  He gets your email immediately on his "smart phone."

Don has two email addresses and they both go to his phone (click below):

dald10@charter.net
dald10.da@gmail.com

He has the group email on his phone and can send your partnership request out immediately.  This could be especially beneficial if it is "last minute."

When you need a partner and see the group email partner request, if you click on reply or the reverse arrow, no one will see your reply.  You must compose a new email or just call the requestor.

The body of the email needs to include how you wish to be contacted (email, phone, telegraph).  It is desirable to add your mp total or special conventions you like to play.  That way Don merely copies and pastes this information into the group email partner request.

Please do not omit the contact info so that Don does not have to hunt for that information in a previous email or find your email in the sender's email drop down.  It wastes his time and he may have to send you an email asking for more information, thus causing delay.

5 Cities:

Any 5 Cities Club partnership requests need to go to Bettye Landino at

bettyeslobridge@gmail.com

SPECIAL NOTICE:

Our Monthly Unit game is the 2nd Saturday of each month. The next unit game will be on October 8th 12:30pm at SLO Senior Center.


Very Important:

The ACBL has instituted a new privacy policy and our unit has adapted it to our own electronic and hard copy distributions, email, game results and partnership searches. In order to be included in any distributions generated from the unit you must fill-out, sign and return this form to your club. For those that play at multiple clubs, it is only necessary to return it to one club. The following is a pdf copy that you can print out bring with you!
