November Game Schedule

Congratulations to Keith Coates for making Bronze Life Master and to Cindy Thomson for making Life Master at the Puerto Vallarta Regional!  It was a nice, well run tournament with some tough but friendly competition so those of us who didn't do quite as well as Keith and Cindy still had a good time.

We are all looking forward to Dale and Rosemarie's safe but delayed arrival in January.

What do Churchill, Sharif, Gates, Buffett have in common?

 

They are well-known bridge devotees together with Dwight Eisenhower, Mahatma Ghandi, Deng Xiao Ping, Agatha Christie, Oprah Winfrey, Woody Allen, and Martina Navratilova.

The most challenging mental sport, bridge is a game of skill, concentration and infinite possibilities. It’s part science, part math, part logic, part reason and embodies cooperation, problem solving and has even been linked to higher test scores among children. It is an easy game to learn, a hard game to master and you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy it.

Millions of people worldwide play at home, in clubs or on-line. Many advance to tournaments or “duplicate” bridge to enjoy its social competitive aspects.

The medical profession is only now coming to realise that, as people are tending to live longer. Remain mentally fit may be as important as maintaining their levels of physical fitness. More and more often chess, bridge, backgammon and crossword puzzles are being cited as excellent activities for keeping the brain exercised and stalling the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Bridge provides an excellent mechanism to improve a player’s:

  • Logical thinking skills
  • Mathematical ability
  • Memory
  • Teamwork
  • Social skills
  • Concentration
  • Critical thinking ability
  • Communication skills
  • Problem solving ability, and
  • Inferential reasoning

Bridge is one of the few games played today by people of all ages and nationalities.
