Convention Cards

We have many players that feel comfortable with duplicate and want to branch out and play in other nearby places. This is a wonderful thing, but since our Salisbury games are relaxed we have not made it mandatory to fill out the Convention card on the back of the individual score sheet.

In larger venues most players rely on opponent’s cards for information about what rules are followed. In our local games many of us have private understandings we use when playing that are not necessarily Standard American rules.

When playing away from Salisbury, you and your partner must fill out your card in the same way. If you play something that is not on the form it must be alerted during bidding. If you play anything that is in red on the card, it too must be alerted. Opponents may call the director if alerts are not made and penalties could occur. Any questions about how to fill out the form, ask any old time players for help.

The Friday Jan. 9 Evergreen game was well attended.  N/S winners were First, Marie Pugh and Ruth Bowles; second, Carol Bachl and Judy Gealy; third, Ron and Shirley Jeffers. E/W winners were First, Fern Albracht and Toni Iossi; second, Marvin Query and Wade Lowder; third, Chuck and Margaret Rimer.
