A Newton Center Bridge Party

Please come out and join us for a pleasant evening of competitive party bridge in  Newton Centre.  Wednesday night bridge here has been a multi-year Metrowest tradition; it is a nice quiet spot with a fireplace, good food, ample table space.  The more the merrier, so long as you know how to play bridge and love it.

This is officially canceled unless 7 sign up by 5pm. Fewer may still attend, of course, should they privately agree to do so. Check this space at 5pm if quorum questions exist. Out of courtesy, please do not sign up casually, nor cancel out on the day of event except in emergencies.

You must know Contract Bridge rules and basic bidding to play this week. No formal training is to be offered, but this is a social, casual event. To assist novices, bidding advice and meanings will be openly discussed on any player's request.

ACBL Yellow Card is our group-standard bidding system; a novice should please take time to study all basic openings and responses shown above in yellow, plus standard Jacoby Transfer and Stayman responses to NT openings. We will expect a verbal alert on deviations an expert may make to these most-common conventions.

    I see we are less than 7 for this evening at Fresh Pond. If I understand correctly that means the event is cancelled but we can meet anyway. Does anyone want keep the evening going? We are Linda +1 so there just needs to be two others. Please answer soon!

    Sorry, everyone, but it's not looking good for me to join you this evening. Still too much to do before my great African adventure. Look forwarding to joining you again in a few weeks. Have fun. Hope there's at least one slam bid and made tonight!

      We had lots of good hands. Sorry you missed it, but we all wish you a super trip and safe traveling. Go shoot a couple of big animals for me, and email the results!!

    Hi guys,

    There's only the barest chance that Sam and I will make it after all, so we figured it would be best to change our RSVP in case we don't actually end up showing up.

    Have fun!

    Howdy, all. Good to see that 4 people have signed up for this Wednesday. I'm hoping to be your 5th, but won't know until the last moment. Hope to see you.
