    Announcement from the Board of Directors

    The Chattanooga Bridge Center Board of Directors has approved an annual membership fee for each club member of $20.00, beginning January 1, 2023. The fee will be assessed and paid annually the first time the member plays in a face-to-face game at the club at the beginning of each year. When you pay your membership fee, the game fee will remain $7.00. Until you pay your membership fee, the game fee will be $10.00. So, please come prepared as there will be no exceptions. Compliance makes it easier for our volunteers to do their job.

    Out of town visitors and non-members who choose not to pay the membership fee may play up to three times for $10.00. After three plays, they will be required to pay the membership fee.

    To facilitate the paying of the membership fee, there will be a Board member (not the Director) at the bridge center designated to collect the $20. So, this is a reminder for you to either provide $20 in cash or a check made payable to Chattanooga Bridge Center. The Payable To name on your check must be exact for the bank to accept it.

    We appreciate each and every one of you and look forward to more fun and games in 2023 and to help keep the Chattanooga Bridge Center alive and well.

    Mark your Calendars for these upcoming special events. Come join the fun.

    Mentor/Mentee Games

    The Second and Fourth Monday at 7:00 pm on BBO there is a Mentor/Mentee game.  This game is designed for Mentors to work with the Mentees in an effort to improve their bidding and playing of hands. The Mentor will work with the Mentee to create a Convention Card the Mentee is comfortable with. To play and be assigned a partner, you need to contact Anne Donnovin at 423-605-2996 or aadonnovin@bellsouth.net

    Mark your calendars to play in the Mentor/Mentee game at the CBC scheduled for the third Friday of each month at Noon. This is an excellent way to get help with your bridge game from a more experienced player. In these games, the Mentor will play the Convention Card used by the Mentee and help you work on anything new you’d like to add. If you would like to play in this game, you must sign up with Sue Shramko who will assign you a partner. You can text or call her at 423-304-7017.
