199ers Duplicate Bridge

Karin Hansen

A bridge group just for beginners and novice players with less than 100 master points is offered every Thursday morning at 8:15 a.m. A short lesson is given followed by supervised play using duplicate boards. Most weeks, the hands are set up to help practice the material presented in the lesson. Instructors are available to answer questions about bidding and play. The session ends by 11:00 a.m. ACBL master points can be earned by winning pairs who are registered ACBL members. Coordinator Anne Newman ([email protected]) can answer any questions about participating in the Thursday morning group. This fun and low-key atmosphere provides great learning and playing experience for all those interested in duplicate bridge. Partners are suggested but not required – newcomers are welcome! Games are held at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road, unless otherwise announced.

A Non-Life Master game is also offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. along with an Open game. Partners are required for these games. It is suggested that you arrive 30 minutes prior to the game and must check in no later than 15 minutes before the start of any game in order for directors to seat you properly. During the winter months, the room may easily reach capacity.
