Welcome

The Board of Directors of the City of Palms Bridge Club welcomes all players to our club as long as they follow our policies which include a new COVID-19 policy and the ACBL's Zero Tolerance policy.    This should be a place where all can come to enjoy a friendly game of duplicate bridge among friends.

We will be holding meetings from time to time to familiarize our players with our new website and all that can be done on it.  This will include live face to face meetings as well as online meetings using Zoom.

We also want to thank Rick & Val Covalciuc for all they have done for duplicate bridge in Fort Myers as none of this would be possible without the foundation they have built.  

Hopefully we will not let you down or disappoint you, but please let us know if we do.

Don McCullough- Club Manager
