RogueValley Summer Sectional July 29-30-31

By Jim Flint
     It will be the grand re-opening of the newly refurbished Dan Voorhies Bridge Center when Unit 484 hosts its Rogue Valley Summer Sectional July 29-30-31 in Phoenix, just south of Medford, Ore.
     The center has new carpeting, a new tiled refreshment center, and new paint.
     “We’re thrilled to have a new updated look,” said Leah McKechnie, a club owner and operator of the center. “We think players will be pleased.”
     With 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. start times, evenings will be free for dining out and exploring the area.
    “The Oregon Shakespeare Festival and the Britt Music Festival will be in full swing,” said tournament chair Sharon Fauss. “We suggest people come a day early and stay a day longer for a great getaway.”
     People can go online to order tickets for plays or concerts. Just Google the events to find their websites.
     Other fun in the sun activities include jet boat adventures and wine tasting.
     Single sessions are scheduled for Friday, July 29, at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. there will be 299er Pairs (for 0-300) and Stratified Open Pairs.
     On Saturday at 10 and 3, there will be single session 299er Pairs and play-through sessions for Stratified Open Pairs, with single session tickets available.
     The 299er games will depend on player availability.
     Swiss Teams, stratified by average masterpoints, will begin Sunday at 10 a.m., followed by a break and then the second session. Lunch will be available.
     There will be a reception Friday after the second session, hosted by the DanVoorhiesBridgeCenter. Linger, compare results, and talk bridge with your fellow competitors.
