Guaranteed Partner Program
The Guaranteed Partner Program is one of the most popular features our Club offers.   It provides a convenient method to allow a player without a partner - an out-of-town visitor, a member whose partner cancels just prior to game time, or a member who simply decides he wants to play at the last minute - to come to the Club and have a partner for the game.  With the Guaranteed Partner roster prominently posted for the Director's use, it is not necessary to call a Board member or the Guaranteed Partner Coordinator to see if a partner is available; simply call the Club at 817-795-1188 if you wish and the Director can tell you the status for the game.
The Guaranteed Partner Program is now being coordinated by Dorothy Bedford.  Please continue to support this program, which is considered to be a key feature of our Club.
Club Closings during Dallas and Ft. Worth Tournaments
The board has voted on the following policy concerning club closings when there is a Fort Worth or Dallas tournament. The club will be closed for all Friday through Sunday games during any Dallas or Fort Worth sectional. The club will be closed for all games during a Dallas or Fort Worth regional tournament.
Board Actions
- The board has reviewed the Zero Tolerance Policy for unacceptable behavior and decided that it promotes an atmosphere which all of us would find more enjoyable. Therefore, the board adopted the policy for its use in our club.
- As of January 1, 2012, Regular game price is $7.00 / Non Life Master games are $6.00 (where upper MP limit is 0-500).
- ADBC players are rewarded for frequent play by using their Frequent Player Card. Obtain a free card from the director. Then bring it every time you play and the director will stamp it during one of the rounds. If you forget to bring it or put it out, tough! If you play 10 times in the calendar month you will receive a free play.
ATTENTION SMOKERS !!!
- Arlington City Ordinance states Smoking is not allowed within 50 feet of any door or window. That would make smoking permissable at or further away than the grassy island in the parking lot.
