Solera Party Bridge Club Information
You may recall the delivery of the Sunday newspaper, thick with all sorts of sections, including game pages with crossword puzzles, chess-game moves, and even a bridge-hand diagram. The later likely carried the byline of Charles Goren, whose nationally syndicated bridge column debuted in the Chicago Tribute in the summer of 1944.
Contract bridge, or simply “bridge" to most people, involves two teams of two players each. A game comprises 13 tricks and uses all 52 cards in a standard deck.
Meeting to play bridge is the Solera Party Bridge Club, which takes over the MGM Room from 12:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
What’s different about this bridge group? The way we score games. In regular bridge, contract bridge, scoring is based on full games with a continuity of partners for the entire day. In party bridge, we change partners from time to time.
The club has no dues and will work with newcomers who have a basic knowledge of the game of bridge.
