The doors usually open about 12:30 for afternoon games and 8:45 for Friday morning games so come by, say hi and make some new friends.

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

IN MEMORIAM
IN MEMORIAM

 

It is with great sadness that we report that Gary Morris died on February 1 in Ajijic, the victim of an execution style shooting.  As of this posting no culprit has been apprehended. And  no motive understood.

 

Gary and his wife Pat have been wintering in Lakeside for 15 years and have been enthusiastic supporters of our bridge club during that time.  His family and friends are shocked at his passing in such a brutal fashion.

 

Ina addition to Pat, Gary leaves behind two children and four grandchildren as well as a large circle of friends in Ontario and Lakeside.  A teacher during his working life, Gary remained a fountain of knowledge on a wide range of topics.  He will be sorely missed.
