INDIAN PAINTBRUSH SECTIONAL ON OCTOBER 1 & 2 WAS A HUGE SUCCESS THANKS TO ALL WHO WORKED TO MAKE IT SO!

 

Bridge etiquette (gleaned from ACBL)

1. Be nice, smile. 2. Don't give lessons to anyone at the table. 3. Keep your voice even and the gestures consistent when making bids or playing the hands. Don't snap your cards or make any unusual movements to get your point across. Be ethical. 4. When on lead against a contract, LEAD and then write down the contract on your scorecard. Same thing for dummy, lay your hand down and then write down the contract. 5. Don't discuss the hands until the round is over. 6. Avoid playing with the bidding box. Decide on your bid before touching the box. 7. Avoid taking a card out of your hand before it is your turn

The following information should help protect players from getting sick while playing bridge.  ♠   ♣ 

Remember to practice good hygiene. Washing your hands often and thoroughly or using alcohol-based hand sanitizer will go a long way, and if you’re sick, you should stay home to protect others.  You should cough or sneeze into a tissue and then discard it as soon as possible.  Avoid touching your face as germs are easily transmitted that way.  If you have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, you should wear a mask to protect others.

 

DUPLICATE BRIDGE IN CHEYENNE - updated October, 2022

Continuing in January of 2023, we will have a Q&A session at noon on each first Thursday of each month.  Send your questions to Rod (southworth15@yahoo.com) at least one day before the session.  There will be no game on Thanksgiving Day.  Our Christmas party, with championship bridge game will be Saturday, Dec. 10th at the Knights of Columbus!  Please sign up for either the prime rib or salmon dinner as soon as possible.

Let's have more players at all of our games - partners are no longer guaranteed.   Newer players should check the Useful Links menu option for many free bridge lessons online.

Thursday Afternoon Bridge 

The cost for Thursday games will be $3 for each player, including the club championship games, NAP games, and Eight is Enough Team games.  Note: some special games with extra points may cost everyone $5 and will be announced on this website.

It is important to show up by 12:15, or have a partner there by then, so we can know how to set up the game.  Players who are late may not be allowed to play!

Food will not be provided by the unit.  Water/coffee will be available.  Everyone is expected to help putting away bridge supplies and card tables/chairs, etc. after each game.

Game results will be posted on ACBL Live shortly after the game is completed.  Knights of Columbus bar (Casey's Club) opens at 4pm – players are encouraged to socialize there.

You will be able to use this website to help find a partner, once you have registered with the webmaster as a member.  Thursday game results are posted on this site, left side under Results.

Tuesday and Friday games are run by the Wild West Club and may have different rules and procedures for play.
