BABY BEARS ROMP FOR HOURS AT ABR

Last Monday night there was great fun at the ABR.  Sixteen Baby Bears, along with Four Mama and Papa Bears, showed off their new skills at the old game of bridge.   Games, slams, and partscores;  limit raises, minor transfers, and challenging  1 No Trump bids were handled with exuberance.  Three bottles of wine and great snacks (including Jean’s yummy German chocolate cake) disappeared, though no one appeared to have over-imbibed. 

Grace and Betty are ever so proud of their ingénues and it appears that the game of bridge is not dying, as feared.  Our new players are full of enthusiasm and are pursuing the game avidly.  If any regular players at the ABR would like to help them along, we would love to have mentors for them for their first 3 or 4 months of play at the ABR.  A commitment to play 2-4 times a month and be available to answer questions and encourage these new players as they assimilate into the ABR would be grand.  The best entry point for our new players is definitely Jean Alden’s friendly, teaching Monday night game.  Grace’s teaching game on Thursday mornings is another wonderful event for them.  Paul Westervelt is already actively involved in these games and Doug is, of course, on hand to assist his lovely wife Jean on Monday nights.

If you feel inclined to help out with one of these precious baby bears, aged 30 to 75, please contact Grace or Betty.  We assure you, they are not dangerous!
