It has been a while since I wrote anything about bridge. Part of that is that I have not been playing or directing for some time.
I have debated whether or not to talk about this, as I am not sure anyone is really interested. However, I realized that if I do write about it, people can just ignore the post — assuming anyone knows it exists in the first place!
The issue revolves around why I play the game and have occasionally taught and directed games. I have played bridge, off and on, all my adult life (with a 15-year hiatus early in my working career). I play bridge because it is a fascinating and addicting game. Also, I am not very good at socializing and playing bridge has given me an opportunity to meet and interact with people. Read More

It doesn’t take many tournaments to get a feel for the general deportment. Read More

Bridge players from the St. John‘s area did well in various 2013 Masterpoint competitions. There are two ACBL competitions, the Mini-McKenney that counts all Masterpoints won during the year and the Helen Shanbrom Ace of Clubs Award that only counts Masterpoints won in club-level games during the year.

Well, this post is not about the bridge Laws — or even about bridge!
Other than to say my wife and I endorse this organization, I’ll let the poster, reproduced below, speak for itself.
