No Game This Wednesday
There will not be a game on Wednesday, November 22, at the San Marino Club.  The City has other uses for the facility that day.  Darn.

Nationals
The Nationals down in San Diego start on Thanksgiving day and run until December 3.  If you are good enough you have the chance to bring home some Platinum points... red and gold points are there, too.

Christmas Party
    Unit Holiday Party
    Our annual Holiday party will be on Sunday, December 3, and the board members are asking you to please make a reservation so they can plan the menu.   Call Richard Halverstadt at 818 790-2915.






New Game in Town!
Morris Jones, "Mojo" will have a grand opening on Monday evening, December 4 for non-Life Masters. Below is the information he sent me...

    Announcing the BridgeMojo Monday Night Game       BridgeMojo Club
      Grand opening Monday, December 4
      Monday evenings, 7:15 p.m.
      San Marino Masonic Center
      3130 Huntington Drive
      San Marino, CA

    I've heard it so many times over the past few years, "When are you going to open your bridge club?"   You might say I've been working up to this point ever since I bought a dealing machine a couple of years ago.

    I realized that I could offer a game for non-Life Masters that's different from what's currently available.  The modern duplicate bridge game played in clubs and tournaments around the world is better and more fun than ever.

    A bridge game with a mission
    I wrote a Mission Statement for my club, to provide a place for newer players to learn and practice the modern bridge game straight out of bridge class.  The full statement is available on my club website.

    My game will be a shorter game, about two hours, for busy professionals with day jobs (like myself).  My target audience will be the aspirational bridge player, who thrives on the never-ending struggle to master this game.  Since it takes years of playing in clubs and tournaments to become a Life Master, my game will have a broad mix of experience levels.  Every player is on a journey of discovery that we can share and celebrate.

    And then, I can do something to make it truly different: No pre-game lecture, but after every game have a freewheeling postmortem where we can study the bidding, play, and defense of hands that came up during the game.  We can talk about the Laws, proprieties, best practices, how to read a hand record, or fill out a convention card.

    My players will be prepared to go out into the world and play comfortably in any bridge club, any tournament, any cruise ship, at any level, and fall in love with this game and its players like I have. This game is way better than playing online bridge.

    So here are the particulars!
    You can see where and when at the top of this announcement.  The San Marino Masonic Lodge #408 is a beautiful 1940's-era building with lots of room to grow, great parking, and a great location.  Card fees will be $10 per game.  You can buy a five game package for $45, or ten games for $85.  Play whenever you like.

    We'll finish play by 9:30, and then you may join in the postmortem or not, however your mood strikes you that evening.

    I'll have a projector with a screen to look at individual hands, results, and topics of interest.  Results and hand records will be posted online at BridgeMojo.com  Naturally, the game will be closed on Christmas and New Years, but I plan to open on many other holiday Monday evenings.

    This is a formal game, sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (Club No. 274779). The game is conducted by a certified director, and masterpoints will be awarded.  You don't have to join the ACBL to play, but you can buy an instant membership at the game if you decide to.

    R.S.V.P. and play free at the grand opening Dec. 4
    I've been practicing and rehearsing for this game for quite a while, including redesigning and updating my web site.  The first game is still going to be a shakeout game for me.  I really want to know if you're coming!  Could you drop me a note?  Help me work out the kinks!

    I've set up an email list specifically for the Monday night game.  If you're interested you can join it from the BridgeMojo site, or just drop me a note and I'll add you.

    Visit the new BridgeMojo.com

    My website has been redesigned to work well on computers, tablets, and phones.i  I'm building it to support both class schedules and games, as well as feature stories from time to time.  Right now there's a front-page story about the San Diego NABC starting in about a week.  I'd love to see you there!
