Duplicate Bridge

Karin Hansen

Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge continues into the spring months. A special game is held on Thursday mornings at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road. Start time is 8:15 a.m. with a short lesson, followed by two hours of playing duplicate bridge with assistance from the instructors and assistants. This is a great way to move from social or party bridge into duplicate bridge. The game is structured “duplicate style” but is casual, relaxed and fun. If you have a partner, that is fine; if not, one will be provided for you. Top-finishing ACBL members with less than 100 masterpoints can earn masterpoints for participating in the Thursday morning game. Cost for the game is $6 for members of the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club and $7 for non-members. When the weather is heating up, come on over for a nice morning of bridge in the air-conditioned room! Questions about the Thursday game can be directed to Anne Newman, [email protected] Experienced players with more than 100 masterpoints are invited to bring a new beginning partner to the game to introduce them to the wonderful world of bridge. The experienced player will pay and play with the beginner and then be given a voucher for a free play at some future game at the Sun Lakes Club. Games for experienced Novice and Intermediate players who are non-life masters with less than 500 points are held every Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road. Please arrive by 1:00 p.m. in order to pay entry fees and be assigned to a table. Cost is $6 for members and $7 for non-members. Partners are required for this game. If you need help arranging a partner, contact [email protected] This is a stratified duplicate game with ACBL rules and directors.

Top score during February in the Thursday morning game was on February 14. Melissa Denton and Peter Harris were the sweet Valentines who had a sweet 68% game. Congratulations! February 14 was sweet for another pair in the afternoon 499er game: Tim and Mary Bennington had a very high 71% game. Congratulations to these partners and to all the others who had high scores during February. Information about the bridge club is available on the Internet under unit351.com.

Opening the “clubs” tab will direct you to Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge and will open the webpage with more information. Questions about the novice program may be directed to Karin Hansen, board representative, at [email protected]
