Happy start of summer, everyone! Play a hand poolside, take a deck to the beach, deal some cards while grilling hot dogs…or maybe just stay inside with the air conditioning when you play bridge today. It’s hot out there!
It’s Officially the Summer SolsticeToday is June 21, the start of summer – at least for those of us in the northern hemisphere. More importantly, it’s The Longest Day, the central day for the worthy fundraiser event supporting Alzheimer’s research and care!
But remember, you aren’t limited to today. Face-to-face clubs can choose any day this week to hold fundraising games (through Sunday, June 26). So, there’s still plenty of time to raise funds through playing bridge. (Click here to see a list of participating clubs.)
Direct donations are also being accepted. As of the sending of this email, our community of bridge fans has raised more than $430,000. That’s amazing! We could not be more grateful.
We’re still collecting your stories as well! Click here to tell us what you want people to know about Alzheimer’s disease.
More Summertime BridgeWe’re just over three weeks away from the start of the Summer NABC in Providence RI! We hope you’ll be joining us July 14-24 for 10 days of bridge.
You could win some gold points or maybe even some platinum points! Or learn from world-class teachers in the Intermediate/Newcomer room! And see your friends from all over! You won’t want to miss it.
Practice for the NABC Robot IndividualWe hope to see you in Providence, but if you can’t make it, you still have a chance to win an NABC title with the NABC Robot Individual.
In the online event, you’ll partner with a robot in a stratified competition over three days (Sat.-Mon., July 9-11). You can warm up ahead of time with one of the practice tournaments on Bridge Base Online. Play for free and get familiar with the bots on June 24-25 or July 2-3.
