Activity Name

Social/Progressive Bridge, from beginners to experienced players.

Note: We also Coordinate the annual Special Event - Social Bridge Tournament in June (pictures below).

Description

Beginners are welcome but some knowledge of the game and playing experience are required. We, in general, follow Standard American bidding conventions and ACBL contract bridge rules. That said, the emphasis is on fellowship and fun, not competition. Currently there are four groups as shown under the Coordinators list.

Each group consists of a core group of 8 to 10 players who meet on a regular schedule. Frequently core group players are not able to play on a given night so a list of spares is maintained for all groups and players to call upon. This gives spares many opportunities to play and to get to know other VMNC members.  Occasionally a regular player may leave the group permanently. Their replacement is normally found from those who are on the  spares list.

Anyone interested in playing in a social context is encouraged to put their name forward for the spares list. Please contact Bob Macdonald, Coordinator of Group C, to have your name added or to obtain more information about our bridge groups. Bob’s contact information is shown under the Coordinators list.
