She has been playing for 22 years and is currently a Silver Life Master. She is an ACBL certified teacher who has been teaching for eight years in bridge clubs and in private groups.

PLEASE: do not wear perfumes, after shave lotion, cologne, body lotion, or any other scented product to our club. Some people are highly allergic and it can cause severe reactions.
The ACBL requires that each member of a pair have an identical convention card available for inspection by the opponents. Our club eases that requirement to one member, but if no convention card is present for a pair, that pair will be limited to playing only the Standard American Yellow Card. Any pair that attempts to play a convention not on the yellow card will be assessed a procedural penalty.
If you make a reservation, please keep it or phone/email in a timely fashion to say it will not be needed. This is especially important as we go into "season" and failure to adhere to this may result in your reservation not being accepted.
