11-Apr-2021 Message from Phil Wilner Reopening of Route 66 Bridge Club
The Route 66 Board of Directors met on Monday, 5-Apr-2021, along with Ray Zekauskas (chair of our reopening committee), Henry Robin (Unit 158 President) and Jack Lindley (who has graciously agreed to oversee repairs from our Feb-2021 sprinkler pipe leak).
Our tentative date to reopen is 1-Jul-2021. Timing is dependent upon completion of needed repairs to the club (estimates are being generated for insurance company approval; this is the critical path before work can start). The Board unanimously agreed:
While still waiting on details from the ACBL, we believe it likely that our club will have a "hybrid" model of games in 3Q and 4Q 2021. This means we will hold both face to face games and online games at different times, continuing to participate as part of the Oklahoma Collective. For example, on the same day, we might have a face to face game in the morning and an online game in the afternoon. While we have renewed our sanctions for 2021, the start time for our face to face games has not yet been determined.
Easybridge! will resume after Labor Day; notionally we are looking to start two sets of classes (i.e. both Saturday morning and Saturday afternoon). Depending upon interest, we may also hold some Easybridge! workshops (which can be taken independently of one another) in July and August.
We hope you are as excited as we are about resuming bridge at the club.
We are also looking to significantly expand the size of our Board prior to elections later this year. It takes a lot of volunteers to keep our club going. We are looking to both add new members and to replace Board members who will be rotating off by year end. There will be an overlap between new and exiting Board members. We hope you will consider using your skill sets to advance duplicate bridge in Tulsa. Please reach out to me to let me know of your interest.
As always, please let me know of your questions, comments, or concerns.
OKLAHOMA COLLECTIVE GAMES
All of our games for the current month are shown in calendar (tabular) format on the Calendar page of this website.
To find our game:
You will get a screen where you register to play. You will need to enter your partner's name. At this point you will need at least $5 in your BBO Account. The regular games cost $5 per player while special games featuring extra points cost $8 per player.
The BBO software stratifies all games proportionally based on the players in each specific game.
The game results are posted on ACBL Live. We are trying to post all of the game results under Fun and Games although we have used both club's sanction numbers in the past.
