Welcome to Solivita Bridge Club
Spring Update - Alan McIlwain

The winter season is winding down and we are seeing fewer people at the games as a result.  We do plan on keeping games going all summer, although there may be a few games where we may have to scramble to find directors because of vacations. 

Thanks to everyone who supported us this year.  Our games would have been a lot smaller if it weren't for the people who regularly attend from Winterhaven. Thanks also to all our helpers who have made this bridge season work. There are a lot of you pitching in to help keep the club running smoothly.

Newer or beginner players are welcome at the Monday and Sunday games, but they must be able to play at a good speed.  We like to get hands played in an average of 7 to 7.5 minutes each. It won't bother other players if you make mistakes, as long as you don't hold the game up.

'Newplicate' Bridge - Donna McIlwain

Our Newplicate game is normally played on even (2nd and 4th) Sundays, starting at 1:30 with a short lesson at 1:00. However, we have some changes in schedule as we go into the summer.  Because we will be traveling, there will be no games in June. For July and August, watch for Donna's emails. ( We have a new RV and may take some long trips.) We will certainly be running the game again next fall.

This is a beginners bridge game for duplicate players with less than 5 masterpoints. It is run by a bridge teacher, rather than a director, and is designed for people who play bridge, but are just getting into duplicate.  In fact most of the people playing have taken one or more of the club-run lessons. The idea is to get newer players familiar with the duplicate game in a relaxed non-threatening environment.  Players can ask for advice from the teacher, and if mistakes are made at the table, they are fixed at the teacher's discretion - not necessarily according to strict tournament rules. This game is run as a section of the Sunday game, and is sanctioned by ACBL as a 'Brigeplus' game. Some masterpoints will be earned by the winners.

Results are posted to this website, and players can see their results, look at the hands, and see what the more experienced players in the main club did with them. Over time, players should learn to play faster and with more confidence, and can graduate to playing in the B-Section of the club's Monday games. 

The game is open to qualifying players , but you must register with Donna so she can ensure that we will have full tables. The last few sessions have had 5 or 6 tables registered. Contact Donna for more information or to reserve a seat at the games.   (Donna McIlwain, 216-640-9885, dmc3726@yahoo.com)
