2016-17 Youth Bridge Game Series
The youth bridge game series will start Saturday, October 8th and continue thru the end of the school year. There will be one game each month - 9:30 AM till noon.

The game is limited to players who are in middle school or older. The session will begin with a short lesson and the game will follow. There is no charge for participants – but space is limited.

Youth participants do not need to have attended camp, but it would be most helpful if they understand the game thru 1NT openings with Stayman and Jacoby Transfer responses.

Anyone ages 10 thru 18 are welcome to come play, watch and learn. Youths may play with their own adult partner - depending on the game format.

The tentative schedule thru the end of 2016: October 8 November 12 December 10

Please let us know if you plan to attend at

An open letter to the members and supporters of the Columbia Bridge Club.

Dear extended family and friends,

It is with tremendous pride that I wish to say ‘Thank You” to each and every one of you who has helped to make this an extremely successful tournament. It is through your tireless efforts and contributions, whether your time, your donations, your participation or a combination of all three, that Columbia has once again demonstrated the hospitality for which we have become known. I have received multiple compliments and endorsements from many of our out of town guests who have expressed admiration regarding how everyone has come together to make this event a success. It would not be possible without your efforts.

As much as I would love to take the opportunity to bestow individual credit for going above and beyond, I dare not for fear of omission and lack of space. There are so many tasks that go on behind the scenes that often go unnoticed, but are crucial to the outcome. Some of these include food donations including soft drinks and coffee, setting up tables and chairs, decorations, partnerships and stand-by partners for out of towners arriving alone, food preparation, cash donations, and physical labor and so many more that are not listed. You know who you are and so do Lee and I. We appreciate your assistance and realize that this is your tournament and we are just a funnel to receive compliments on your behalf. I am so proud and thankful to belong to a group so selfless and eager to promote the game of bridge, which we all enjoy so much. Thank you Columbia Bridge Club for continuing to set the standard for how a tournament should be run.
