Piedmont continues to offer Virtual Club games on
BBO Monday and Thursday evenings,
start times 7:10 pm; ALSO new Virtual Club AFTERNOON GAME on Wednesdays, start time 2:10 pm.
we find virtual games have all the advantages of NO DEALING W/ POTENTIAL COVID ISSUES, plus no driving, vaxes or even masks
necessary. No cards, boards, bid boxes, bridge-mates or pads, travelers (thus few if any bothersome score corrections).
No sit-outs, late plays, insufficient bids or any of the other inefficiencies and inconveniences (too numerous to mention
them all here, but we all have experienced what they are) of 20th century f2f games. We are all about 21st century bridge,
including time management. All players have access to their own food, drink, and bathrooms. Possible addition
of zoom if/when it becomes available, to help w/ social aspects. Bridge industry appears to be at a crossroads now:
choice is between best possible games or whatever limited sociability the f2f game may afford; having both doesn't seem possible
w/out weakening both.
We're most grateful to all (and many th'x) for support so far. Table
fee for all games remains $6.
