Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge 199er’s
The 99er/199er Board Representative is Susan Stewart, 480-895-6385. All games are held at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road, unless otherwise announced.
The 0-99er Novice Group meets Thursday mornings with a special review lesson which begins at 8:15 a.m., and Director Maria Davis will provide great teaching and playing experience for all those interested in learning or coming back to the great game of bridge. Partners are suggested but not required – Newcomers are welcome and encouraged to attend and to enjoy this excellent opportunity.
The 0-199er Intermediate Group games are held on Tuesday afternoons at 1:30 p.m., and Saturday mornings at 9:00 a.m. if there is a large enough turnout. During snowbird season, you will enjoy a large number of Intermediate players. Currently, on one Tuesday a month, the room is divided into two groups, 1-499ers who are Non-Life Masters and the Open Group consisting of 500 mp’s and above and all Life Masters. In the summertime if the Intermediate Group is too small, they play in the Open Games; however, any player is always welcome to attend all Open Games. We have one of the largest intermediate groups in Arizona.
All players must check in no later than 15 minutes before the start of any game in order for directors to seat you properly. However, you may be turned away if you arrive late or if the room has been filled to capacity, so it is advisable to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of games.
Partnership Coordinators and Unit Information: Sun Lakes Unit 351 will always assist you if you need a partner.
