Family Friendly Bridge
It is official. We have the approval to reopen Family Friendly Bridge Club for Face-to-Face bridge games as of Monday, June 28.
We will resume the physical games that were interrupted (the same games will continue to be offered on BBO for $ 7):
Monday, Thursday, & Friday at 12:30 PM, 24 boards, cost is $10 per player.
Tuesday Evening at 6:30 PM, 18-20 boards, cost is $10 per player.
Thursday Mornings, mini-lesson followed by 12-15 boards, cost is $10 per player
Note: Hospitality will not be served - no food/coffee served for at least the first few weeks.
Disinfectant and hand sanitizing supplies will be available at all times. We are following CDC guidelines:
masks are not required if you are fully vaccinated; else a mask is strongly recommended. We are NOT requiring
players to show proof of vaccination. The last number I heard was that 85% of persons over 65 years old are fully vaccinated.
The bridge game in Belmont at 266 Beech St. is Face to Face and is in full swing at this facility. We have coffee and refreshments. Belmont has enacted a mask mandate for inside municipal buildings. Belmont will continue online.
The Winchester Bridge Club is now officially a Face-to-Face game.
Welcome back. It will be so nice to see your smiling faces.

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 evening, 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 elevator on the Dow Avenue side of the church.
Fees: Games cost $10.
Need a partner? Use our easy PlayMates program (click here), or contact Bob Gaudet, our Club Director, in advance if possible, or just come to the game 15 minutes early, and we'll accommodate you.
