1. From Salida de Celaya/Ancha the Ruta 10 ( Malaquin) goes down Canal to the end of Estacion/Canal. The bus will drop you off in front of the Hotel Arcada.

2. From Centro, across from the Oratio, Ruta 5 ( Malaquin) and Ruta 1 (Central) will take you to the end of Canal/Estacion and drop you in front of the Hotel Arcada.

3. From Guadalupe Ruta 2 ( Mexiquito) will take you down Canal/Estacion and drop you at the gas station/vivero across the street from the hotel.

Whether you are walking, driving,or bussing it-we hope to see you there.

NEW! Partnerships

We have a new form on this web site for finding partnerships. In the menu on the left of the home page there is a button "Find a Partner". On that page is a form you can fill out and it will be mailed to our Partnership Chair. Below the form is a list of people who have made requests. You can contact them using the information provided. You don't have to use this form, it's just for convenience. You can still directly email Mary Katherine Wainwright at mkwbridge@gmail.com. Whichever way you choose, PLEASE, if you find a partner on your own, contact Mary Katherine to let her know so she can stop looking for you. We don't want any double-booking. Thanks to Don Freeland for helping with the form.

 

No Fragrances Please!

Please keep in mind that some of our players have allergies to perfumes and other frangrances so let's not wear any to our games. In our small confines, there's nowhere to go!
