The Annual Meeting of Unit 550 is scheduled for Saturday, December 1. The game begins at 10AM. Unit 550 is supplying lunch and desert. Both the game and lunch are FREE!
The SCBC Holiday Party is scheduled for Saturday, December 8. The game begins at 10AM. Unit 550 is hosting a full meal at the break. Both the game and lunch are FREE!
Each game will have a separate 299er section if there are five tables. Even if you don't play, you are welcome and encouraged to join us for lunch at either game.
There is a sign-up for the Holiday Party so that we can get a meal count. If you need a partner, email us and we will try to arrange one for you.
Your offical ballot may be picked up at the SCBC or printed out here.
You may cast your ballot any time from now until 2P on Friday, November 30th. Results will be announced at the Annual Meeting and Holiday Party Saturday, December 1st. Remember: You must include your ACBL Number on the outside of your envelope for your ballot to count.
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:
