Bonita Bridge has a new home. We have been in it for a short time- for a shakedown cruise and we are ready for our Grand Opening which is coinciding with the worldwide relaxation of Covid restrictions. We will celebrate our Grand Reopening with a $2 per person Silver points game and a return to free food. In addition we will have a few door prizes. Come check out our cheery, bright new location on Saturday February 19th. The game will start at 11AM.
Our full schedule of games have returned. Our previous 499er games on Tuesday and Friday mornings are now Non-Life Master games, NLM,(no restriction on your masterpoints) on Wednesdays and Fridays @ 8:45AM have been suspended.
Everyday except Sunday@ 1PM we have Open games as well as our popular 299/199 game. On Saturday a NLM has replaced the 499.
And we have a special price for anyone with less than 500 masterpoints playing in our <499 games.
Safety is Our Concern
We have been operating games since May 2020, during the the pandemic scare, and we have not had a player report to us that they contacted Covide while playing bridge at Bonita. There were a number of our player who did report testing positive ut assured us that their causal contact was from some other activity -- and they self quarantined for the safety of all concerned. We attribute our safety record to the extreme measures we went to the expense to make sure our players were safe. The plastic barriers are now down and masks & gloves are no longer required but we still ask that if you have any symptoms that you refrain from coming to the club. The integrity of our staff and players in avoiding contamination of others as well as the safety measures we have employed have proven effective in prevention.
Bonita Bridge First in the Nation
As early as April we began the research and planning that would permit our players to safely return to the table. After a sizable investment in safety measures Bonita Bridge reopened its doors in mid-June; probably the first in the nation.
Our efforts have not gone unnoticed! There are now over 80 clubs across the nation that have re -opened to provide the face-to-face experience. Numerous phone calls from far away clubs provided them with the details of our preparations. And in the last week we were visited by a handful of people representing nearby clubs because their members are anxious for the traditional way to play the game.
Pay in Advance Discount is Now Available
To reduce money handling and the congestion before games, we ask that you pay in advance. In the past, many of our friends have bought those little “Free Play” cards that were used in exchange for payment at game time. We are going one step further. You will be able to buy your entries on-line, and we will give you a baker’s dozen (13) when you buy 12. When you buy entries on-line (13 for 12) you will receive a receipt via text or email. The cost for the baker’s dozen will be $120. Our popular 199er/299er special price will be extended to all games restricted to less than 300 master points. You will be able to buy the 299er Pass for $25. The Pass will allow you to play in any under 300 game for $5 . Buy Now
