M C & G  Bridge Studio   8-Apr-2018

TIP OF THE WEEK: When holding nine cards in a suit and you are missing the Queen, it is slightly better odds to play your high honours (the Ace & King) and hope to drop the Queen.  But if you can finesse into the ‘safe’ hand you might be better to do that so you can guarantee the contract.

The Bridge Studio celebrates its 20th Anniversary!!
Please find attached a copy of the program for the week.

Mostly you want to remember to:
  - Wear your house colours - this will earn 25 spirit points for your house.
  - If you can bring something along for the "Theme of the Day" you can win 50, 75 or more Spirit points for your house.
  - Play - just being at the Studio earns points for your House - remember Masterpoints are multiplied by 10 for House points.
  - Prizes for all winners in each stratum for every game.
  - Snacks & Refreshments -- all week.
  - Winning house will be presented with a plaque on Saturday April 14th as well as special prizes for the most point getters on each house.

MONDAY - First day of celebration - we will have celebration cake with ice cream!!  Afternoon game is OPEN and Stratified.  More cake for Monday evening "Just Play Bridge" we have special prizes for the winners.
Monday features - INVENTIONS of the 1920s.  You would be amazed at what everyday items were created in the 20's - bring something to your game on Monday and win BONUS points for your house.
