Bridge Library
Want to read a book to improve your bridge game?  Due to many donations we have an extensive collection of bridge books in our library.  Check it out.  To borrow a book just sign your name on the paper on top of the bookcase in the office and return the book within a reasonable time.  (And be sure to show it to your partner!)


    Random Thoughts
    Why do we say something is "Out of whack?"  What is whack?  If something can be out of whack, can it also be "In whack?"... Why is "Phonics" not spelled the way it sounds?  Why is nighttime called "After dark?"  Shouldn't it be "After light?"  If a word is misspelled in the dictionary, how would we ever know?  Why do "Fat chance" and "Slim chance" mean the same thing?  Why does "Slow down" and "Slow up" mean the same thing?  Why are they called "Stands" when they are made for sitting?  Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?  Why do we drive on a "Parkway" and park on a "Driveway?"  Why is it called a TV set when it's only one?



Sorry, but the Bridge Center does not post game results on-line.

Brushup Lessons

Starting the week of January 17 we will have free pregame lectures before all Rookie and Newcomers games.
Haven't played bridge in a long time?  Has your bridge gotten rusty over the summer?  These new pregame brushup lectures will get you started again.  We will discuss each area of bidding and opening leads.  All Rookies and Newcomers are welcome to attend.
