9-Jun-2021 Message from Phil Wilner Reopening of Route 66 Bridge Club
Updated as of 18-Jun-2021
Our current plans are to reopen on Sunday, 20-Jun-2021.
Repairs from the burst sprinkler pipe are complete but there is other work required to test and set up the systems we need before reopening. Thanks to both Jack Lindley (who spearheaded the sprinkler system repairs) and to our volunteers who have helped clean and set up the club.
Our game schedule will be a mix of face to face and virtual club games through the Oklahoma Collective. A Board member will attend each face to face game for the week of 21-Jun; all players are encouraged to provide feedback and comments. A printable copy of the schedule is contained in a link below. The virtual club games on BBO will start Monday, 14-Jun-2021; the face to face games will then begin on Monday, 21-Jun-2021.

We will be working with Fun & Games in OKC (our partner in the Oklahoma Collective) to adjust our virtual game schedule depending upon player demand.
Covid Protocols1. Vaccinations are required (we will be on the honor system) at least for now; players will be asked whether or not they want us to require vaccinations going forward.
Request for Volunteers
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. I am looking forward to seeing you again at the table!
