Team Games - Alan McIlwain

We are running evening team games on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month at 6:15 PM as long as we have enough interest. If we can, we'll play a Swiss Team game, but if we have a small or odd number of tables it will be a Round-Robin. 

Each team is asked to bring a light snack or dessert dish. Bring your own drinks.

Please register ahead by the Thursday evening with Donna McIlwain at, and provide player names so we can set the games up in advance to save time.

A New Director - Alan McIlwain

Congratulations to Kathy Wheeler for becoming our third director. With three directors, it will make it much easier for one of us to take a vacation, or plan some other activity on a 'bridge day'.  Thanks, Kathy.

SE Florida (Florida Bridge Collective) - Alan McIlwain

For those of you playing on-line a lot, we have news from the SE Florida Bridge Collective. 

"We have decided to merge the SE Carolina and the Florida Bridge Collective.  An integrated game schedule will be posted on the SE Carolina and Florida Bridge Collective.  We have tried to maintain all the sponsored games but had to shift the day and time of a couple to eliminate conflicts. Merging the two collectives will hopefully allow us to attract more players and have more sustainable price-competitive games."

No Partner?

Players may come to either of our Sunday or Monday games without a partner.  We will attempt to match people up, and if there is an extra one, the director will probably play with them. (Exceptions will be for STaC games which have rules about playing directors.)  If you need a partner, please come early so we have time to match you up, and you have time to plan how you will play.
