Ideas for Unit (or local org) Games?
Don, if that was the case it was before my time in Seattle. But I do remember calcutta events held in Vancouver BC that were not unit or district related.
Ideas for Unit (or local org) Games?
Jackpot games involve an extra contribution by each participant - say .50 or 1.00, to be pooled into the "jackpot." At the end of the game, a pre-determined number of highest scoring pairs split the jackpot. For example, in a 10 table game, if all pairs contributed 1.00, that ...
