Subject: Senior Activity Center facility users - Mask Optional

As the NH Department of Health and Human Services continues to report an increase in cases, hospitalizations and positivity rates of COVID-19, the City is recommending:
  • All players FULLY vaccinated
    Each person must present proof of vaccination, and two weeks passed since the final shot. Players that do not provide proof will not be permitted to play or kibitz. You only need to present proof of vaccination once to play regularly in our games.

Parking is available on either side of the Senior Activity Center. Please enter the building through the front door. The Director is our normal standby as a fill-in partner. However, when the game gets very large we cannot guarantee a partner since the ACBL discourages a playing director for certain special games or games with 15+ tables.

Need a partner? Come early for the best chance of securing a partner-- or call one of the contacts listed below two days before the game to be listed on our Partnership Requested sheet maintained at the Director table.
