September Asheville Club Game Stats  (9/1 – 9/30)

Call for Membership Participation in Beginner’s Bridge Mentorship


In consultation with ABR’s leadership, Jonathan and I are finalizing plans to offer on-line classes for beginners for the purpose of adding to the active membership of Asheville Clubs. But we’ll need help from our current members to make it work, particularly in recommending possible participants, and your willingness to mentor and integrate new players into our games.


Do you know of someone in your family or friendship circle who’s interested in learning Bridge?  It’s not necessary that they be local.  Assuming we sponsor excellent classes, mentor/mentee games, 0 – 20’s, and other ongoing teaching games as needed, would you be willing to assist in the development and mentorship of a new player and member in our clubs?  If so, please communicate with Jonathan (828) 900-1300 and help make the introduction.  Also, are you interested in learning to teach or co-teach on-line beginner classes? Step up if you can.  Your service is much needed.


Special September Recognitions:


Will you mind if I recognize myself this month, or should I say, this half-month, because by the 20th, I only had one win under my belt, but by the 30th, I had eight, most coming in Gold Week.  I’d feel better about it all if I’d actually played better than in previous months, but in truth, several wins were with less than 60%, games that Rob and Lee might easily have won had they not stumbled a bit themselves in the last couple weeks.  I look forward to continuing our high-level competition in October, and also against Bert Hall, Kris Boswinkel, Peg Patterson, and Max Shaw, who all had great Septembers as well.


As always, our 0-750 players continue to inspire, especially in open games.  For instance, in eight open Gold Week games, you scratched or better in 62 of the 130 paying positions, almost half.   In all thirty open September games, 0 – 750 pairs took first or second in fifteen of them.  Congratulations, especially to Peg, Johanna, Nettie, Philip, and Mary Lynn, who each won two open games, and to Mary Lynn and Nettie, who scored 68% in their open win on the 14th.


Peggy Axley turned Gold Life Master last month - that’s a lot of points, honey.  Mary Lynn Westervelt turned Bronze?  How did that happen, didn’t you just become LM in May?  Axley better watch out, at that rate, you’ll catch her in January.  Doug Hibshman and Bill Tyler also turned Bronze, and Mark Threlkeld, Linda Wilson, and Janie Sumner all advanced as well.  Congratulations to everyone.


Next month will complete our first half-year of virtual club games.  I don’t know what they might be yet, but some extra-special recognitions are in order.  Hmmm, best dressed maybe?

For those playing in the Asheville Clubs online BBO game.

Once or twice a month we send out favorable stats of those that have had a good month playing bridge. From time to time we include a little humor and announce winners in certain categories. Several times a month we send out a general news email.
