September Information


September Newsletter

Birthdays: 6-Lauren Stricklen; 10-Joy Pavone;   15-Deb McShane; 16-Diana Bitler, Marianne Hansen; 19-Joan Padgett, Susan Williams; 22-Virginia Winters; 26-Ann Murray; 28-Larry Padgett. September Birthdays will be celebrated on the 6th.


We’ll be open as usual on Labor Day for our 199er game.


Plan on playing often on Thursdays in September and October. We’ll keep track of your percentages. Players who participate in at least five sessions with at least two partners will be eligible for extra points earned in the Series.


0-300 Players—sign up to be paired with a mentor. We’ll hold a special mentoring game the second Thursday of each month from 9:30-11:30. Mentors will play free at this game. We’ll start October 9 with a brunch before the game. Mentors commit to play at least once a month with this special partner(either at the second Thursday session or some other time). The commitment is for six months, with a renewal in April if desired. If you are a more experienced player, this is a great way to give back for this game we love.


We’ll also have the monthly free mentoring session on the third Thursday, as usual: September 18 from 9:30 to 11:30.


If you know anyone who would like to learn bridge or who needs a refresher and a fun introduction to duplicate, we’ll start a new Easybridge series on Wednesday, the 24th. The first session, free, is for absolute beginners. Then the sessions in October will also be free, though a book will be available for $20. Help us publicize this program—it brings in many new players to our game.


Lynn Berg will teach two workshop sessions introducing Two-over-One on September 23 and 30. The charge for this is $20 per session, or $35 for both. The classes will run from 9 to 11:30 with lots of practice hands.


We’ll end the month with an Open Individual on the 29th. Come join the 199ers for some fun. Then on the 30th there will be an Open Team game.


Bridge is a timed event, and we use a clock. Our policy is not to keep dozens of others waiting for the final score while the late ones play a late play at the end of the game.

If you can’t start your last board before the clock has gotten down to two minutes, you shouldn’t start. There’s no penalty; instead, you’ll be awarded a No Play for the hand you miss. This has no effect at all on your percentage. You’re protected if you have a good game, not helped or hurt if you have a poor game. It is not the same as getting an Average on the board. In fact, if you’re having an above average game, that would be a penalty. Only repeated slow play after warnings would ever result in a penalty—hasn’t happened yet! Remember, even if it’s not your fault(we know—it’s those other folks), the Director may have to take a board away so everyone can catch up.

Florida's Friendliest Bridge Club

Our building is designed for bridge, and is dedicated to the game with sessions every afternoon except for Sundays.  We offer refreshments and social breaks in every game. We recently installed a new Handicap Accessible Bathroom, and invite all to check out our remodel.

Board meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of the month and members wishing to make comments/suggestions to the board may do so at the beginning of the meeting.  

Need a partner for a club game? Please call the club the day before if possible at 386-734-7170.

Join us for a great game of bridge in a friendly atmosphere.


The Club participates in TheCommonGame which provides expert analysis of hands and allows your score to be compared across many participating clubs.  Click on the logo to visit
