Committees

Bridge

Round Robin schedules are arranged by the chairwoman. They play from September to May. The hostess arranges the date and time.


Duplicate Bridge schedules are also arranged by the chairwoman. There are five different groups. Each group plays once a month, the 1st and 3rd Thursday, 2nd and 4th Friday, and the 3rd Wednesday from September to May at the home of the hostess. 

We are always looking for new players to join us.
