Monthly Birthday Game
        There is now a monthly Birthday Game, to be held the first Saturday of every month at 1 pm. The game is open to all, but any member whose birthday is that month will have a free play. There is also a birthday cake and a picture of birthday people for the newsletter. Please mark your calendar and we look forward to seeing all the birthday people on the first Saturday of each month. Please contact Sharon Barry for more information
Thursday Mentoring Games
        Thursday mentoring games started on January 26th at 1:00 pm at the club and will be held every second Thursday. There is a sign up sheet in the club near the director's table. Anyone willing to be a mentor for the next game is asked to put her/his name on the sign up sheet. Anyone who wants to play with a mentor can pick one of the mentors to be her/his partner by signing up beside the mentor's name. That way we'll have partnerships decided by game time. Obviously for this to work we need a lot of mentors, so we encourage our more experienced players to sign up as mentors. Please note you are welcome to come and play with your regular partner - you don't have to play with a mentor.
8 is Enough Swiss Teams
        8 is Enough Swiss Teams resumed on Thursday Jan. 19th at 1:00 pm at the club and will continue every second Thursday.
