Central Illinois Virtual Club -- http://illinibridge.com/virtual.htm

A big THANK YOU to everyone who has been playing in our Virtual Club games on Bridgebase.com.  About 80% of your $5 entry fee is returned to our local club to help cover expenses until we can reopen. We couldn't have made it through these past few months without you!

New this week:  Mentor/Mentee Game - Sunday, July 12 (6:50 pm)
This game will be held on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month, starting this week (July 12). It's open to pairs where an experienced player is mentoring a beginner or intermediate player.  This can be an existing partnership or a new one (we'll help you find a partner).
   To play in the Mentor/Mentee game, email Mary Stuart (m-st...@illinois.edu) and she'll send you more information. If you don't have a partner, let her know you're available and she'll help you find a good match. If you're signing up with a current partner, please provide that person's name & BBO login. 
  Note that the regular Sunday Open Pairs will still be held on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of every month.

Here's our Virtual Club weekly schedule:
  ♣  Sunday --  6:50 pm  (Open Pairs - 1st, 3rd & 5th Sundays; Mentor/Mentee game - 2nd & 4th Sundays)
