May was a very successful month for many of our Novice and Intermediate players in the Sun Lakes Bridge Club. Top scores during the teaching game on Thursday mornings were as follows: May 30, Tom Brand and Damian Birnstihl had a remarkable 77.02% game. Also in May, on May 16, Bernie Emery and Rich Schager had a 75.57% game. In the 499er game, Paul Morris and partner Terrance Heying took the top spot with a 70.64% game on May 21. Other high scores were achieved by Frank Bost and Patricia Liddell on May 9 with a score of 66.87% and Donna Wilson and Carol Ritter on May 16 with a score of 66.38%. Congratulations to these and the many others who had successful games during the month.

The Thursday morning teaching game for players with under 100 masterpoints is on break for the summer months and will resume again the first Thursday in October. If you have questions about that game, you may still contact Anne Newman at [email protected]

Each week on Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 p.m., the Sun Lakes Bridge Club hosts a special ACBL-sanctioned game for players with fewer than 500 masterpoints. The game is held at Risen Savior Lutheran Church, 23914 S. Alma School Road in Sun Lakes. Please plan to arrive by 1:00 p.m. with your partner to check in and be seated appropriately. The cost for the game is $6 for Sun Lakes Bridge Club members and $7 for non-members. Annual dues for membership in the Sun Lakes Bridge Club are only $10 per year. If you are interested in playing but need help finding an appropriate partner, contact [email protected] and someone will take your information and help you get connected. Visitors are always welcome at the Sun Lakes Bridge Club.

In addition to the Tuesday and Thursday limited games, the Bridge Club offers sanctioned open games for everyone on Monday at 1:30 p.m. and on Saturday at 9:00 a.m. Intermediate and Novice players are welcome to join these games. Always arrive 30 minutes before game time to allow the directors time to set up the seating assignments.
