Notice of games playing Face to Face

FFBC  offers an open duplicate bridge every Monday, Thursday, & Friday at 12:30 pm. We play between 20 - 24 boards  

Bob Gaudet runs a Newcomer Game on Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30 am.  He starts with a 20-minute mini-lesson and then plays roughly 9 hands.  Masterpoints are awarded.  Since this is an educational opportunity, you can use your notes, and even ask questions when you get "stuck".  Partners are always available.  

FFBC also offers Drop-In Bridge: on Tuesday evenings, 6:30 – 9:30 PM.  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. 

The cost is $10.00 for a Duplicate Bridge Game (18-24 boards).   

Coffee and snacks are provided at the duplicate games.

Where:  We play in the lower level of St Camillus Church, 1175 Concord Turnpike (Route 2) in Arlington MA. Please don't park in the two rows closest to the church. There is a handicap-accessible entrance with an elevator on the Dow Avenue side of the church.   


Fees:  Games cost $10.
