Wednesdays in July and August

It's official! Marolyn Imaoka joins the team of Lori and Sue on July 1st. No, the club will not become the "Tripleton Club," but we are dropping "Lori & Sue's" from the official name. We are now the Doubleton Club. Please give Marolyn a warm welcome.

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:
  • July 15, 29; August 12, 26: Regular games
  • July 8, July 22, August 5: North American Pairs Qualifier (extra fee) - Reservations required!
  • August 19: Sectional Tournament at Clubs (STaC, extra fee) - Reservations required!

North American Pairs Qualifiers:

The ACBL calls the North American Pairs a "highly prestigious 'grass roots' event." It's also fun and the qualifiers give lots of masterpoints - half of them red. We will be holding three qualifiers: July 8, July 22, and August 5. Note that the conditions of contest for this event limit Flight C contestants to non-life masters. That means that all life masters must play in the Open section in these qualifiers. Mark your calendars and sign up!
  • Open section: Flight A (open to all) and Flight B (less than 2500)
  • 499er section: Flight C (NLM and less than 500)

      Reserve (or cancel) your spot: Doubleton Club Reservation Sheet


      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.

      Don't forget to let us know when you become a Life Master. We want to add your name to our Congratulations! list.
