Step 1. Click here and join the Unit 501 newsgroup.

Step 2. Send email to livermore-valley-unit-501@googlegroups.com asking for a partner for a given day or days. The directors receive this mail too, so no need to ask them separately! 

When replying to partnership requests, use "Reply" not "Reply All". Your reply will go only to the person who asked.   Answer only if able to play.

Please do not send mail to this newsgroup EXCEPT to find a partner. You can pick up a phone / email list at the club, and we periodically send it to the email list.

Use of the newsgroup is expected. Craft your message to describe the kind of partner you will accept, and then please accept anyone replying that fits your description. 

A phone list is available if you prefer. For privacy reasons it isn't on this site. Email Grant Robinson asking for one. Our partnership chair can help with last-minute problems.

To be included on the phone list, give Grant your contact details.

About 99er Games

Games for players with less than 100 masterpoints are usually the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, but check the calendar.

No partner necessary. You are guaranteed to play. Just check in with the director when you arrive

The 99er game will play the same hands as the main game, but usually fewer boards (around 20) so you won't be too rushed.

ALL players are always welcome at any game.

Book recommendations for 99ers:

Seating

Please check in and choose a seat assignment appropriate to your playing level before 9:50.

People requiring N/S seats must notify us in advance. If a regular, just notify us when NOT coming.

Notify the director listed for the game on the calendar above.

You may, from time to time, be assigned a direction, even if you arrive early, in order to make N/S available to a wider variety of players.
