Magic happens, club re-opens Tuesday morning!!!

The work party works.

That didn’t take long.  Building management got the damaged walls boarded up, the torn electric circuits rewired and the biggest pieces of drywall removed.  Inspections were made and structural integrity assured.  Insurance companies were contacted, claims filed, papers filled in.  The phones may or may not work, but Tuesday morning at 8:30, the club will be open.

Things aren’t exactly back to normal but the game marches on.  We can deal with a little disruption, with strange looking walls, as long as the move is called on time and the trumps break.

Eventually, a contractor will rebuild the walls and the front door.   It seems likely the carpeting will have to be replaced, at least in part.  Everything will work, and you won’t be able to tell that there was ever a disaster.

 

You don't often see skid marks on carpeting.

All’s well that ends well.  Nobody was hurt, the club was only closed a couple of days and we’ll get new carpeting out of it.  There may be some noise and dust during the rebuilding, but we can live with that.

Iris say to thank everyone for their help and their concern.  All game go on at their regular time, we’re back in business.
