Zero Tolerance at PBC

We strive to have a "Play Nice" atmosphere at our bridge club. Players are encouraged to respect their partners and opponents at all times. Comments on bidding or play of the hand can wait until after the game. If you feel that any player is not acting according to the policy, call the director.

Adopt a Student

The Tuesday “Adopt a Student” mentoring game has been a really popular game. Table numbers have increased thanks to PBC members who are playing bridge with her students and Maureen would like to thank our PBC members who have joined in to play in this game.
