Bring Home a Cure

As many of you know, our good friend Jean Jolin has a grandson Connor who has been stricken with a rare and to date, incurable form of cancer.  His name is Connor MacLea and April has been dubbed as a fundraising month to help find a cure for Connor.  Bridge Academy II wants to help in every way possible.  On Sunday, April 22nd, we will be holding a game here at the club with 2 sections - a sanctioned 499er game that will be upgraded (extra master points) and a non master point supervised play game.  Diane and I will be here and if there are any of you experienced players who would like to swing by to donate and or help the students....please do.  ALL proceeds from this event will go towards a cure for Connor.  Lunch will be provided at 12:30 with the games to start at 1pm.  Then from April 23rd through the 26th, we will run charity games with Connors fund being the benefiting local charity.  Please check out their website at www.BringHomeaCure.com for a list of activities or to make a donation.  THANK YOU for your support!

Types of Doubles

At the onset of bridge, when the only meaning of the term “Double” was to increase the penalties if a contract was defeated, there was no confusion as to its intent.  Now, however, the large variety of doubles that are similar in nature, yet different, often present a problem to the beginning bridge player.  Perhaps, some of the confusion can be alleviated by assembling some of these doubles in a table.
