As summer begins its slow decline, we are hearing from a few snowbirds, who are advising us of their plans to leave for warmer climes to which the rest of the group wish them well as we continue on with the games.   

We are happy to add new faces occasionally and continue to invite any and all bridge players to this competitive game of cards i.e., just what the doctors ordered for aging seniors.
