With eighty years of fine bridge and camaraderie, the Minneapolis Grand Slam Club must be one of the ACBL's longest running and most excellent places to play bridge in North America. September 7th will herald the Club's 81st year of existence.
David Neiman has been providing a wonderful job as president of the MGSC. Above, we see David celebrating another year of great bridge at one of the MGSC's year end parties.
David's "welcome letter" for the 2018-2019 season is below. If you're a long time MGSC competitor, welcome back. If you haven't played at the MGSC, then please do consider checking it out. You will be glad you did!
As President of the MGSC, I am pleased to invite you to the 2018-2019 season of the MGSC Bridge Club. Affectionately called (by us) the “best bridge game in town” (and hopefully the friendliest!), the MGSC meets most Fridays during the school year at the Edina Senior Center. Games begin at 7:15pm and will feature a variety of pair and team games. Players of all skill levels are welcome and a partner is guaranteed for all single-session pair games. Member card fees remain at $6 per session ($5 for full-time students) while non-members pay $7 for regular games and slightly more for special games. (The Club absorbs extra fees for members.)
Oh, and coffee and treats are free at every game!
The full schedule is available at our website: https://grandslammn.org. Click on the Calendar link on the left side for the schedule. (Note: 2018-19 schedule will be posted soon.)
MGSC membership remains at $20/person and, while not a requirement to play, is about the best bridge deal you’re going to find in the upper Midwest. For your membership you get to play FREE at 4 “Club Nights”, a heavy discount to the End-of-Year Bridge
BacchanaliaParty, and a subscription to our weekly newsletter, which is filled with club results and instructive & insightful articles. The newsletter is the best way to keep up-to-date on club news and results if you happen to miss one of the weekly games. The Board approved a $10 membership and $5 card fee for full-time students.
Please join us for our first game of the season on Friday, September 7.
David Neiman, President MGSC
