Sun Lakes 199er’s Duplicate Bridge

Karin Hansen

The Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club has a group for everybody who likes to play duplicate bridge! Beginners, advanced beginners, social bridge players moving into duplicate, former players, just finished the classes players and even rusty players are invited and encouraged to attend the Thursday morning duplicate bridge group that meets at 8:15 a.m. at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road. A short lesson is presented followed by two hours of playing bridge hands. During the game, instructors are available to answer questions and help with the bidding process. The game is friendly and welcoming for players at the beginning level. Master points are awarded to the top finishers each week. Players must have less than 99 master points to participate in the Thursday morning group. Questions about the group can be directed to Anne Newman, [email protected]

In addition to the Thursday morning session, the Bridge Club offers two more opportunities for Intermediate and Novice players to play against each other. On Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at 1:30 p.m., during the regular club game, a separate game is offered for those players with less than 499 master points. Partners are required for these games and you should arrive about 30 minutes before game time. More information about the Bridge Club is available on the website, unit351.com.

If you are in need of a partner for any Open Games, please contact the Players’ Pairs Assistants Eileen Utter at [email protected] or phone 802-8300, Barbara Lubsen at 699-9649 or Carol Warner at 618-514-0566. Please try the email first if you have access to a computer. Fees for the game are $6.00/person if you are a member of the club or $7.00/person if not a club member.

If there are any problems at the table during an auction, call the director. Do not try to resolve the problems yourself. Calling the director is NOT disrespectful to your opponents. You want to be sure that you get a proper ruling for the problem. Discussions before a director is called often complicates the situation.
