Drop-In Bridge: is held on Tuesday Evenings, 6:30 – 9:30 (Lower basement)
All skill levels are invited to come and play bridge with some very friendly and welcoming players.
You will make some new friends and enjoy a relaxing evening. Coffee and snacks are available.
Words from Frank Stewart:
Why do we play bridge anyway? Certainly not to memorize a bidding system or to adhere to a set of rules.
The game’s appeal lies in problem-solving. During a session, a player faces hundreds of decisions.
Some he can resolve with little thought, but many require reasoning.
That is what a player finds exhilarating: He has a problem and figures out the answer.
Do you have an unwanted PC laptop (not Apple) that you are willing to donate to the club for use as a time clock? The ones we are using are pretty old – i.e. still using Windows 98.
Never miss a game.
