Take a break from competition and enjoy an afternoon of lunch and social bridge! On Friday, October 4, we will be having a pot luck lunch followed by a no-stress, no-frills Individual game. Sign up to play - you don't need a partner, and you'll get to play with all of the other players in the game. Each player will keep a private tally of their points and prizes will be awarded to the players with the most points. Bring a dish to share at 11 a.m. Game time is 11:30 a.m. Look for the sign up sheet and please register no later than October 1.
