JuLY 2018

Hayward 500 is now Hayward 750. All players with fewer than 750 masterpoints, including Life Masters, are welcome.

On Saturday, August the 25th, the last Saturday before the Santa Clara Regional, the Bayshore bridge club will once again hold the annual Maye Soules Memorial game. It has had a very successful run over the last 14 years, but the 15th anniversary will be a little different. There will still be a Club Championship, Barometer, hand records, a separate section for I/N players, Stratified seeding and Trophies for overall winners, plus a fantastic meal. However this year  we will not just toast Maye but we will be honoring the memories of Harvey Brody and Tom Quinlan who we unfortunately lost earlier this year. They were not just great friends of Maye, but very dear to many in the bridge community. Please join us to celebrate their lives and share some great memories as this will be the last tribute game.  Lunch begins at 11:45 a.m.  and the game starts at 1:00 p.m. Please RSVP by August the 16th. We hope to see you there. It should be a great time. 

Table Talk is on Summer Break.
