Score Corrections
The Monday game in San Marino had some scoring errors that were corrected and now there are new results.

STaC Games - Silver Points
STaC games are duplicated and scored across the district and the masterpoints awards are larger than that of regular club games.  Also, the points are Silver points which are needed to become a Life Master.

    The Arcadia Bridge Center will host two STaC games this week... Thursday the 8th at 11:00 AM, and Saturday on the 10th at 1:00 PM.     Card fees are $10.00.

Glendale Holiday Championship - Saturday
Turkey, stuffing, trimmings and dessert!  Saturday, December 10, and game time is 12:00 noon, but you really should make a reservation... 818 869-4386      The card fees are $15.00 for this game.  See the flyer for a map.

Unit Holiday Party - Sunday
It's coming... Our annual Unit Holiday Party!  Sunday, December 11.  Like most parties there will be good food and good friends.  Unlike most past years this is a single session event so the card fees are only $10.00.   It's also a type of game most of us have never played in before - A Swiss Pairs games.  Nope, not a Swiss Team game.  That's Swiss Pairs.  It's at the San Marino Bridge Club and game time is 1:00.
    It's a party... bring an appetizer or dessert if you can!
    Please call Richard Halverstadt if you plan to play:    818 790-2915
Arcadia Christmas Party
Sunday, December 18, you can join us at the club's annual Holiday party with lots of great food and good bridge.  there will be both an Open player section and a Rookie's section so there will be bridge for everyone, but you need to put your name on the sign-up sheet on the bulletin board.*  If you want to bring a dish we will all enjoyt it!

New Years Eve Party!
When else but Saturday, December 31.  Bring food!  It will be a potluck and a unit sanctioned game, so the masterpoint awards will be higher.  Time to eat is 5:00 PM and the game will start at 5:30.  the game will be stratfied so eveyone has a chance to win.  See the flyer for more information...
