3rd Friday Bridge Meetup at Cafe Express!!

Please note that the 3rd Friday Bridge meetup has been moved from All Saint's Episcopal Church to Cafe Express.

Join us for playing friendly bridge and help us keep the game alive!!!

Our members playing levels range from advanced to beginners.  If you are a beginner, please know the basics (point count, simple bidding, and playing of the hand).  We usually don't keep score, but you are always welcomed to.  We rotate partners and try to never place to beginners together.

Time will start at 6:15. so there will be time for those who would like to eat dinner.  Bridge will start as soon as a foursome is ready to play.

Please RSVP and let us know if you are coming.

Jonathan, Ricci, Dave, and Penny

    As I understand it, we keep moving around so people don't have to sit out for long. I agree that it's kind of ADD-inducing. In my opinion it'd be fine to expect the odd players* to sit out until a table opens up, if we play only four hands before changing positions.

    One way to shorten the sit-outs and speed things along a bit would be to not score overtricks unless someone doubled. That way we can move to the next hand as soon as the contract is made and not worry about making 4 or 5 when we only bid 2.

    *Yes, I know, most of us are odd.

    Suggestions: keeping score would eliminate the confusion & noise--high scorers move on to next table & switch partners; also, please those eating move to the wine/food table and allow others to play.

    I'd like the play a little more structured....less moving around haphazardly. But in any case, it was a fun night. Nice group of people. I'll be back.

      It would be nice if we could have the same four play four hands and keep score. Somehow we switch after that.

    I am also in South Austin and will not be able to get there tonight because of the heavy rain. I am disappointed but I will look forward to the next Friday event.

      Sorry you can't make it... there will be several no shows with this rain. Next time, just go and change your RSVP to No. That way when I look at my phone to see who is still coming....you won't be on the list. Thanks...Penny
