The next Unit Game SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30 at 1:00 pm will be at the Lewis Recreation Center, 3110 Forest Lawn Drive, Greensboro, and will be a Jane Johnson 8-is-Enough Team Game.
FULLY VACCINATED PLAYERS ONLY. MASKS MUST BE WORN
MPs are determined by ACBL accounting as of September 7 and are listed on the CCBA website's directory:
Maximum 8 points per team!
"C" players with 0-500 MPs = 1 point each
"B" players with 500-2000 MPs = 2 points each
"A" players with 2000+ MPs = 3 points each
If your total team's points is between 4-5 points, your team is a "C"
If your total team's points is between 6-7 points, your team is a "B"
If you total team's points is 8 points, your team is an "A"
The team pair with the least amount of MPs will determine the direction they want to play for each round.
Please submit your team's members' names to Rich Peffer by October 26. Let him know if you need help finding a partner or teammates within a specific stratification. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or text Rich at 336-402-5367
A Few Days before the Unit Games - Take a photo of your vaccine card and email it or text it to the Director, along with you full name (mine is attached below as an example; it's easy!) The Directors at our weekly games will be helping folks to do this as well, if you'd like. Also, line up a favorite partner, or email the Unit Game Director to help find one.
Check-in - The first time you attend a Unit Game, please arrive early so the Director can greet you and get the games organized for a 1:00 pm start. If you haven't emailed/texted your card ahead of time, show your COVID vaccine card (or a photo if it) at the table in the lobby, and we'll check off your name and let you know at which table your are to sit.
Cost - $8 / Free for players with 0-5 MPs
Food - There will be no food. Water and coffee will be available. Folks are free to bring their own lunch for themselves.
Length of Game - We will play 21-24 boards. Hand records will be provided following the game.
Game Time - 1:00 pm starting time
499er and Open Games: We plan on offering both a 499er Game and an Open Game at all Unit Games; however, if less than 3 tables of 499er players, everyone will join the Open Game, with stratified results. This does not apply to the Jane Johnson "8-is-Enough" Team Game.
Questions? Need a partner? - Please give Rich Peffer (Unit Game director) a call or text at 336-402-5367 / email@example.com
