NEW REVISIONS TO GAMES SCHEDULE

Effective May 1, 2017 and until further notice we will operate at two locations:  Maitland and Altamonte

  • Our Monday Open and 299r game (Noon), Thursday Open and 299r game (Noon), and Friday Open and 299r game (Noon) will be held at Maitland location, the Venue on the Lake - Maitland Civic Center at 641 S. Maitland Ave., Maitland FL 32751.
  • We will continue Workshops, Lessons, FUN Bridge, Wednesday Open games (Noon and 7:00 pm), nd the Saturday 10:00 Open (and 299r) Game at our Altamonte location, 225 S Westmonte, Suite 1050, Altamonte Springs, FL 32714.  

Our regular schedule of games will resume at that time with the following changes:  

  • There will be no Tuesday Open games, only FUN Bridge - The Tuesday evening game will be moving to Wednesday evening at 7 PM. This will be an open game.
  • No reservations are needed nor will they be taken for any of the games offered at the Venue on the Lake - Maitland Civic Center  (Monday, Thursday or Friday) 
  • For those of you who are just beginning your pilgrimage in BRIDGE, we are happy to say that FUN BRIDGE will be on Mondays and Tuesdays at 12:30 PM at our current 225 S Westmonte, Suite 1050 location.
  • The Saturday 10:00 am game at 225 S. Westmonte is limited to 12 tables or 49 people so reservations will be accepted for this game.
  • The 10:00 am Saturday Youth/Newcomer game will be cancelled until further notice.     

We must emphasize that this is a short term solution that could turn into long term. We really want to have our own space in the form of a free standing building with adequate parking. This will take some time because we also have geographic limitations. 

New Learning Opportunities

We are happy to again offer the following learning opportunities:  

  • Starting May 19th, Perry will again offer workshops specifically designed to allow you to brush up on your basic skills as bridge players.  Thise will be offered on Friday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00. Each workshop is a "stand alone" topic and is designed to "Polish Your Basics".  There will be instruction, played hands, and handouts provided.  Cost is $10 per workshop.

  • Starting June 5th, a new series of Beginner classes will be offered with two sessions per week, Monday and Thursday mornings from 9:30 to 11:30.  This course consists of 13 lessons offered over 7 weeks.  Please register for this class by sending your name and phone number to NorthOrlandoBridge@gmail.com with “7 Weeks to Bridge” in the subject line.  Cost is $100 per person but active school teachers pay only $50 and even this will be refunded if 10 of the 13 sessions are attended.   

  • We are now offering Social Bridge twice a week from 12:30 to 3:15 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays.   This is "Fun Bridge" where you are allowed to talk more, play at a more leisurely pace, take breaks more often, and be under less pressure.  We also provide partners and an experienced bridge player to assist.  The fees for these games are $3.00 off our normal game fees as they do not award master points, not require an ACBL director, nor incur any ACBL fees.  If you are interested in playing this "social duplicate" bridge, please come.

Currently we are offering these sessions at our Altamonte location but that is subject to change (so watch this website and our Turning Tricks e-mails for the latest).

Check out our Classes and Workshops link for more details on these offerings.
