    Calling all Directors & Players interested in the New Laws for Duplicate Bridge.  The World Bridge Federation Laws Committee has published its official commentary on the 2017 update to the Laws of Bridge.  This 38 page publication is a much simpler way to understand the intent and application of each law than the current 157 page Laws of Duplicate Bridge.  Note - since this is a WBF publication there might be minor differences with ACBL regulations.  Neverless it is a great source to begin or further develop your understanding of the Laws of Duplicate bridge.

    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!
