JULY STATS & Question from Wayne Dow


July Asheville Club Game Stats  (7/1 – 7/31)

July stats, and an education proposal to our members, courtesy of Wayne:  

Proposal & Survey Question:  Is there a need and would you be interested in attending weekly Wednesday evening Zoom sessions (6:30-7:30 pm) to discuss hands from the day’s open games and similar instructional topics, towards the purpose of raising the level of competition within Asheville Bridge? Please respond Yes or No, with any comments or suggestions, email to wayne@PROTECTED, subject Zoom Wednesdays It would be nice to know before making the effort whether our members would enjoy such an offering. 

In July, Jonathan and I began offering Monday pre-game mini-lessons and Thursday post-game review sessions for our 0-750 players, which has helped us get a handle on the technology needed to run Zoom and BBO simultaneously.  The first few sessions were a little rough, but our participants have been greatly patient and fun as we’ve steadily improved the service.

Zoom Wednesdays would rely on the same technology, but the leadership wouldn’t come from a single instructor.  One idea is to ask several players to present their favorite hand from the day, and to facilitate a participant discussion, leading to valuable lessons for all.  We might end each session with an exchange of ideas about how to improve our games, and how to raise the level of competition within our clubs.

In preparation for making this proposal, I’ve had individual conversations with Jonathan and Rob of JCC and ABR, also Kris, Judy, Lee, Mark T, Julie, and others, whose leadership in Zoom Wednesdays would be necessary to insure that they met the needs of our members.  Almost universally, the conversations ended with a question, are we serving wine?   Hmmm… would your participation be more likely were a bottle of your favorite delivered to your doorstep each Wednesday?  Whatever it takes…  and thanks so much for your consideration and reply.

Special July Recognitions:

Without question, the month of July goes to Lee Wilcox, who won all three main competitions, the most 60% games (9), most Master Points (20.98), and most wins (8).  Congratulations, Lee.  Grrrr. 

Max Shaw was close behind with 7 wins, and Julie Wilcox took third with 6.  Nick Frost took Silver Week with 8.73 MP’s.  Nettie White had the highest MP’s for 0-750 with 14.38.  Hal Campbell had the most 0-750 wins in open games (3).  Yours truly took or tied for second in several categories, except I took first in the number of second place finishes (6). Grrr, enough of that. I’m playing with Michaelann on Tuesday, my ringer, so the rest of you might as well stay home.
