Keep Up with Club Reopening Here

By |April 15th, 2021|0 Comments

Don and Sherri have announced the possibility of reopening the club in May. (See announcement below).

There are a lot of details to be worked out and questions to be answered. How many people would be allowed in under Lane County guidelines? What would be our own guidelines regarding vaccination status? All to be determined.

We will attempt to put all reopening information in the announcements section here, as well as notifying members via our Google Groups mailing list. Notice we’ve added a link that allows you to see all announcements just related to reopening.

We’re all eager to get back to in-person play and see each other again! But we want to do so safely. So keep checking here for the latest information.

Spring Issue of the Trumpet is Out

Laurie Rowe reports on ACBL activities as District 20 director. Many ACBL members still are not playing online.

Reports from other clubs in the district reflect the difficulties clubs are experiencing during the pandemic. Smaller clubs seem to have really struggled. Sad. We are fortunate to be part of a larger club with active members, but we should all be thinking about how we can recruit new members. One of the clubs reported loss of members back to party bridge because they found duplicate too competitive and too much about always winning. Limited masterpoint games help a lot, but sometimes stuggle with table count. Perhaps a pooling of resources from our neighboring clubs could result in the ability to offer more education and more limited masterpoint games so that newer players can advance more rapidly in a more comfortable playing environment.

Don has updates about our club, including some teasing about face-to-face play coming onto the horizon.

Finally, be sure to read Don’s lovely profile of Virginia Garver. What a life she has lived! She is a truly remarkable person.
