Invitation to Novice Duplicate Bridge
The members of Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club wish to invite interested Sun Lakes area residents to try out Duplicate Bridge by attending some Thursday morning bridge games in the Fellowship Hall of the Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road, Chandler. These games, which include a short lesson with a hand-out, are especially appropriate for those who have played some social (rubber) bridge and who might wish to improve their skill level for either social or duplicate bridge. The weekly lesson conducted by our director Deborah Watson begins at 8:15 a.m. Play starts about 8:40 a.m. and is over by 11:30 a.m. Individuals may, but need not, arrive with a partner. The cost is $7 per game for guests and $6 for members. You will find this to be a nice way to learn bridge in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. During the Thursday morning game, limited coaching is available upon request to players puzzling over the right bid to make or card to play.
Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club is a thriving non-profit, member-owned club that holds games on four days each week year-round, all on a walk-in basis. We have close to 380 members of all skill levels and from all over the East Valley. The regular games are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 1:30 p.m. and Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m., all at the Lutheran church address cited above. Annual club dues are $10 and members pay an entry fee of $6 each time they play.
