Please be COVID-19 Vaccinated for this party. This party is at Erica and Jimmy's house, it is not that big, and people will be packed in. We already have over 50 people that indicated they are coming. We don't want to be a Super Spreader Event. Please make sure you meet/know Erica and Jimmy or one of their friends. They would prefer not to have complete strangers in their house.
This party is more about meeting people and having fun than serious cards. Expect a lot of drinkers, slow play, sloppy play, and long breaks between rounds due to socializing. On the same note, try not to be “That Drunk”. Don't get too out of control, have a designated driver, and stay the night if you are not fit to drive. Non-players are welcomed but won't have as much fun.
This is an individual style tournament where you get a different partner each round. No rounds will start after 11:30 for people with babysitters, but the party often goes on. $10 cover goes towards the first place, second place, cards, tables, chairs and other supplies. Bring your own drinks. This is a Pot Luck Party. If you want to contribute, bring a dish, drink or cash to share. It is not required. Erica is in charge of food and beverage, so ask her what is needed.
You don’t have to RSVP, but the party will be run through the DarbyConnections.com website. All players must be registered on the site! It saves a lot of hassle if people are registered before coming. PLEASE BRING A FRIEND! This is all about meeting new people. We get people of all ages at this party from 21 (min age) to people in their 70's. We will be using text messaging to let you know where your seat is and let you record your score. It is fine to show up late because we only count the top five games.
