Venue Change for 8/8, NY Open, Learning Center, Crisloid Classic Update

From: Ross G.

Hi Gang,

Next Sat's Tourney and Committee meeting has been moved to Walnut Beach.  After the weather turns I will move it to Bridgeport, but I figured let's use the beach while the weather still permits.  And the Milford Monthly has been moved to Bridgeport as well (we like that place).  Check the calendar to keep up to date.

---------

I started a new Pictures folder called 'Learning'.  In there you will find pics of positions that you can learn, use and practice.  Feel free to add pics, comment, banter, etc..

---------

NY METROPOLITAN OPEN, we have 2 rooms reserved at the Hyatt for this event.  Last year we had 4-5 players go down, we met some of the Worlds BG Giants like "Falafel" and Bill Robertie, smoozed with the USBGF and played some REALLY good Chouettes all night long.  This year, let's show them how the CBC does it and bring home the gold.  We'll caravan down and put 2 people to a room so the costs are minimal.  Let me know if you would like to go so I can reserve more rooms if need be.  Lynn Ehrlich does a really good job and puts on a GREAT Tourney, so you don't want to miss this LOCAL event... even if you just want to watch and learn, Check it out:

The Crisloid Classic: Update

Crisloid is looking at Oct 2013... AND... might be on board with The 1ST ANNUAL NUTMEG OPEN as the warmup. THAT'S RIGHT! I spoke with Crisloid yesterday and they were considering the idea of having a Nutmeg Opener at the C.C..  What that means for us is, if we can pull this off and have the CBC sponsored 'warm-up' tourney before the C.C., there is a really good chance we could get an ABT Sanctioned CBC event in 2014, right here in CT.  LET"S DO THIS and bring the World of BG to CT!

 

Keep Rollin'
