Our Swiss Team board has a new look! Our own very skilled artisan Sharon Koster designed and crafted the new banner. After weeks of her work, we were able to attach the new art. It looks great and adds a measure of distinction to the our playing area! Thank you Sharon, and know that the time and skill you gave this project is greatly appreciated.

Make Your Zeal for Bridge Infectious - How to Spread the Fun
Each of us are the very best recruiters for this game of ours. Now here's a way to make showing people the fun of Bridge easy to do without taking on full scale lessons (we have wonderful teachers who can help with that). Adults have more fun doing than listening to lectures anyway. So do youngsters in Middle or High School, even College! One idea is to emphasize the fun and challenge of play, foregoing bidding for when people are ready. Here are two mini-games that do just that. No bidding systems or heavy rules - just a great way to experience much of the fun bridge can be. Mini-Bridge is practiced in the Americas and Europe. HOOL is a modified version of Mini-Bridge that shares hand information without the burden of bidding systems. NOW invite your friends over, have a Mini-Bridge/HOOL party, and get them loving this game enough to take lessons and think about rubber bridge then duplicate. Baby steps!
Calling ALL CBA BRIDGE LIBRARY BOOKS! Time to check yourself back in. If you know a CBA member who has a library book, please remind them to return it to the Library. We want you back at the Bridge Center so others can have a chance to read you!
District 11 Ethics & Proprieties Handbook (FINAL) - Here is a source for discussing the ethics and proprieties of bridge with new players, teachers, club directors, sanction holders and experienced tournament veterans.
