Duplicate Bridge News

The Duplicate Bridge Club meets on Wednesdays at 6:45 in the Lake Wildwood Community Center’s Oak Room.

This is an ACBL-sanctioned Open partnership game and awards are made according to formulas consistent across the entire U.S. for “open” games.

You do not need to be a member of ACBL to play. All bridge partnerships are welcome without pre-registration or notice.

If you need a partner, please call our partnership chairperson, Charlie Bertness, at 432-8674.

Table fees are $3. Special games will be a little higher.

We try to get everyone on their way home as close to 10 p.m. as possible. Cookies and coffee are always served!
