John and Linda Randall have a game in Hoover Alabama. It runs every day in the Presbyterian Church and is geared toward newer players. The games are all 0-1500 and I am told that limit keeps moving upwards. They had a lot of food that was prepared for a dinner for all. This club has been using charity games to raise money to help battered women. I played with Ginger Hess, a very enthusiastic young player and even with two bottoms the last two boards, we finished 2nd in our section. It was a very enjoyable evening with some very friendly people.
