Swiss Team Game on May 31st

Our second Fifth Sunday (we share Fifth Sundays with the La Jolla Unit....) is almost upon us. On these Sundays, our Unit games are designed with Swiss teams in mind. Start forming your teams, and let us know if you need any help in finding a partner, or a pair.

We will have 2 sections, as is customary for our unit games, an Open section and a 1499er section.

We will be serving pizza for lunch and a spread of ice cream flavors during the afternoon break.

Come and join us and make your Sunday a memorable Memorial Day Sunday!

June 21st - Annual Membership Meeting

Stay tuned for more!

Announcing Ask an Expert corner at SD's Unit Games!


We have added a 15-20 minute time slot at the end of every unit game (1st and 3th Sunday, and occasional 5th) as a resource for intermediate/advancing and newcomer players. The best way to improve your game is to go over the hands you've played after a game with someone who can help you understand the areas in which you can improve.

After each session, an expert player (sometimes a high level professional) will be available for 20 minutes at the Ask An Expert table. Anyone can bring a hand record and ask about bidding, play or defense. "How should we have bid that slam?" or "How can I make 3NT on this hand?" Or, how do we figure out how to beat the opponents when they bid 5 clubs?" are sample questions. You can ask about specific hands—or get clarification on basic principles of bidding, declarer play, or defensive techniques.

Maritha Pottenger, one of the biggest bridge education advocates in our area has kindly volunteered to host our first session. So be sure to attend our Unit games, starting with Sunday August 17th.
