Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club – Novice and Intermediate

Karin Hansen

Summer is upon us, and the outside temperatures are soaring! But inside, at the bridge table, temperatures are cool and so are the people! Playing duplicate bridge is a great way to meet new friends, challenge your brain and develop a hobby that can last for a lifetime. The Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club offers several opportunities that are specifically geared for Novice and Intermediate players. These are regular, sanctioned, duplicate games with limited masterpoints. Games are held on Tuesday and Thursday at 1:30 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall at Risen Savior Lutheran Church located at 23914 S. Alma School Road in Chandler, Arizona. Doors open at 12:45 p.m., and you must arrive no later than 1:15 p.m. This game is for players with under 499 ACBL masterpoints who are non-life masters. Players who are life masters or who have more than 500 points may play at the same time in the open game run simultaneously at the same location. The cost for the game is $6 for members of the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club and $7 for those who are not members. To join the Bridge Club, dues are $10 per year. Please see a director for an application form or contact Jim Utter at [email protected] You must have a partner to play in the duplicate game. If you need assistance in finding a partner, please contact [email protected] or call Eileen Utter at 480-802-8300, Kay Kennedy at 480-496-6179 or Carol Warner at 618-514-0556 and they will be happy to help you.

During the winter season from October through June, a special teaching game is offered on Thursday mornings. This game is for players with less than 99 points and beginning players who are not members of the ACBL. More information about this group is available by contacting Anne Newman at [email protected] General questions about the Intermediate and Novice Program of the Sun Lakes Duplicate Bridge Club may be sent to Karin Hansen, [email protected] June was an excellent month for many of our game bridge players.

We would like to thank Richard Catero and Jim Wirt for initiating the Saturday “Splitz Blitz” program in which the advanced players are encouraged to play with those of lesser experience. This provides a great learning opportunity for those of the less-experienced players to learn from the better players. This will continue during the summer period. We would also thank the advanced players for joining in this endeavor. The dates for these games are as follows: July 6, 2019, August 3, 2019; August 17, 2019; August 31, 2019; September 7, 2019; September 21, 2019; and September 28, 2019.

Top games for this month are Dave Zapatka and Andi Parham with a 69.68% game which ties with Donna Hofer and Marcia Aspinall. Great games!
