Our 2020 Holiday Party will be at the River Crest Country Club in Fort Worth.  The iconic River Crest has been one of Fort Worth's premier country clubs since its inception.  Let us jump start the holidays with a night of good food, games, prizes and camaraderie with our fellow MBCA members. The agenda, menu and other details follow below. To allow for ample spacing during Covid-19, attendance will be limited to 40 people (or 20 couples), so sign up now.  First come, first served.

COVID Precautions:
Please note that the decision to attend this event is yours alone, and you assume all risks pertaining to Covid-19.  Please do not attend if you have been exposed to the virus and/or are experiencing Covid or Covid-like symptoms. We have a large room, and we will limit attendance to 40 people (20 couples) to enable ample spacing.  We will follow Covid protocols (masks, social distancing, etc.) to make this event as safe as possible. We will have individual plated dinners, not a buffet.  Our game will feature individual or couple participation, not by teams as in the past, so we will not bunch up and so minimize risk of exposure.  You will be asked to certify that you have not knowingly been exposed to Covid-19, and are not experiencing Covid or Covid-like symptoms. Your temperature will be taken - those who have temps which reach or exceed the CDC guideline of 100.4 will not be allowed to attend. 

NOTE:  Covid-19 has taken a financial toll on our club. The MBUSA stipend to the MBCA National Office has been suspended, and National Office revenues from other sources have declined, and so financial support to MBCA sections from the National Office has been halved.  However, Fort Worth Section is still able to subsidize over 40% of our party's cost, so our members do not have to bear the full cost of the event.  Please sign up early to help us plan and manage our costs
