March 15 is the third Friday and that’s typically a Mentor/Mentee game. However, this month there’s a shortage of Mentors due to an ongoing National Tournament. So, in place of this, there will be a “Pick a Partner” game where Mentees are encouraged to ask anyone they choose to be their partner on March 15. If you’re a Mentor planning to play, you may also reach out to a Mentee that you know is working on their bridge skills and ask them to be your partner. Some Mentees are somewhat shy about asking Mentors to play with them. Since the CBC goal is to encourage and assist all players who want to be better players, we encourage all to take advantage of this opportunity.
The Mentor/Mentee game in April is being moved to the 4th Friday, April 26, because the third Friday intersects with the Gatlinburg Tournament. This tournament is a major draw for a lot of CBC players. Therefore, the decision to delay the Mentor/Mentee game one week seems the best course of action for a successful turnout.
On April 10, 2024 there will be an “Eight is Enough” team game. The brackets for this game will be announced shortly.
If you’re new to bridge, this is a wonderful opportunity to meet other players at your level. Come with a partner to enjoy this play date regardless of what kind of bridge you like to play. We are very excited to offer this opportunity to everyone who wants to meet other payers learning bridge or just looking to find like minded players. The cost is $5.00. Dan Chandler will provide a short lesson at 6:30.
If you prefer to play from home, there’s a BBO game each Tuesday evening beginning at 7:00 pm for players with fewer than 499 master points. Contact Anne Donnovin at 423-605-2996 or Stewart Lawwill at 324-718-0791 for more information.
Once a month on typically the third Friday, we offer a Mentor/Mentee game beginning at 12 Noon. This is an amazing opportunity to play bridge with a Mentor who will offer advice about bids and card play to help you improve your bridge game. Contact Sandy Cervantis at 423-315-1953 and she will assign you a partner.
There are currently quite a few players that fall into at least one of these categories. The Chattanooga Bridge Center is dedicated to offering every possible opportunity for you to come join us. This only works if the attendance merits the effort so you are strongly encouraged to participate at the level you are most comfortable.
We look forward to seeing you more often at the Chattanooga Bridge Center.
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 email@example.com
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 Sandy Cervantis who will assign you a partner. You can text or call her at 423-315-1953.
