Duplicate Bridge News

The Duplicate Bridge Club meets on Wednesdays at 6:45 in the Lake Wildwood Community Center, 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!

Congratulations to players of the month Marilyn Solomon and Shirley Griffith!

Free Duplicate Bridge Lessons: Lessons are aimed at those players who have knowledge of the game but have not learned the new American Standard conventions and would like to graduate from party bridge to duplicate bridge.

At your first lesson you will be able to stay and play with the duplicate bridge group free. The normal cost of the Wednesday night duplicate bridge is $3, should you like to play beyond the first free night.

Depending on attendance, we will continue the lessons and learn other conventions.

Call Jim Hook at 432-5593, or email him at: hook13253@comcast.net, to let him know if you will be attending…or just show up.

“Beginning” Bridge Lessons: If there are folks out there who would like to learn how to play bridge, we would like to hear from you. Please call or email Charlie Bertness at 432-8674, or email him at chbert@auxmail.iup.edu. If there is enough interest, we would work toward setting up lessons in the daytime at the Lake Wildwood Community Center.
