Last Chance for Online Gold
Your last chance to earn gold points at online club games is almost here. We'll offer gold points at our regular virtual games at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 28, and Sunday, Aug. 1, as well as a special virtual game at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 31.
Face-to-Face Games on Fridays
We had our first face-to-face game July 9, with seven tables and lots of happy faces. We'll offer triple black points
at Friday face-to-face games on July 23 and 30,
as part of the American Contract Bridge League's "Welcome Back!" program. There will be double black points at Face-to-Face games into September. Wood River Bridge
will hold a virtual gold point game and double and triple black point games the same weeks. You are invited to play in the Wood River Bridge virtual game on July 27 even if you did not play in the physical game prior to the pandemic.
You must be fully vaccinated to play in face-to-face games at either club.
We'll keep Wednesday and Sunday online games as we continually evaluate the mixture of online and in-person games that serves our bridge community best. We are excited about actually seeing people; we also like the ability to stay in touch with our friends in other cities in the online games. Friday games will be at the Wood River Community YMCA in the downstairs Community Room.
Later in this e-newsletter, we'll talk about upcoming lessons and first masterpoint celebrations for three people at the Idaho Rocky Mountain Ranch Bridge Retreat.
