• Fees are $20.00 per year per team for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th Friday Marathons and are non-refundable. 1st Friday Marathon fees do not include cost of lunch. No refunds. Teams must be paid-up members of the SCG Bridge Club for both calendar years to participate in a marathon. Members are required to get their own substitute partner, if necessary. If, however, a substitute cannot be found, a committee member shall be informed at least two days before scheduled play.

Although substitute players are not limited to the substitute list, substitutes should be members of the Sun City Grand Bridge Club. 

As an exception, a guest who qualifies within the 3-game overall limit restrictions as outlined in the bylaws of the Sun City Grand Bridge Club may act as a substitute.

Games are played in the Chaparral Center unless otherwise noted. Play for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd marathons begin at 9:00 a.m. Players are requested to arrive by 8:40 a.m. Team movement and tallies will be provided for each team. Players in the 4th Friday Marathon should arrive by 12:10 p.m. with play beginning at 12:30 p.m. Each session of play consists of three (3) rounds of either 8 or 10 hands each, except that leaders may choose other rotation methods (e.g., 4 rounds of 6 hands each). Leaders may use discretion on how to handle uneven tables. (They can call for bidders or call for a sit-out, giving 1500 points to pairs sitting out for a round.) A maximum of one (1) hour of time is allowed to play each round. Any delayed play (late play) will take place after the third round at the end of play.
