Wednesdays in December

It's time to reserve your spots for Wednesday evenings at the Doubleton Club. Regular games don't require signups, but are much appreciated and help us organize the game so we are able to start on time. If you want a special table or direction, reservations are advised. The game schedule for this month is:
  • December 25 - Christmas Day: No Game!
  • January 1 - Yes, there is a game. If you're regulars, let us know if you're not coming.
ReminderAre you looking for a partner or teammates for an upcoming tournament? Would you like to find someone to share a hotel room? Consider using our "Tournament Partner Request Form" listed in the right-hand menu. Use the form to post your request. Check the list to see who might be available. Please note that all information posted will be publicly available! Lori and Sue will be monitoring the list, but will not be serving as intermediaries. You are on your own to post requests and contact other players.

Are you a SLOW PLAYER? A simple mechanical adjustment is one of the easiest ways to save time at the bridge table. If you are the opening leader, make your lead before writing down the contract in your personal score. If you're the North player, make that lead before entering the contract in the BridgePad. As declarer, it is very irritating to watch a player enter the contract in the BridgePad, and then write the contract in his or her personal score, and then settle back to decide on the opening lead. That's a lot of declarer's - and partner's - thinking time wasted. Make your opening lead first, and then record the contract.

    Do you want to verify your reservation?  Click on the "Automagic List" link. This list updates automatically, although it does take a minute or two, and date tabs at the bottom of the page provide access to the reservations week-by-week. Note that the Automagic List does not include the standing reserved list.

    Are you looking for a partner for an upcoming Doubleton Club game? Try our partner request form. Your request will not be visible to anyone but Lori and Sue.  We will try to set you up with the most compatible person possible. The more advanced notice we get, the more likely we are to be able to find a partner.
