In Your Community: Duplicated Bridge
Published 5:37 pm Friday, December 8, 2023
We are so pleased to welcome some new players. Duplicate bridge is a competitive card game yet most of us are senior plus and tickled to death to be able to concentrate, analyze, make decisions, and come back each week to play again.
We welcome and encourage any or all bridge players to come play with us either on Tuesdays or Wednesdays at the Mower County Senior Center in Austin. Players come from Rose Creek, Albert Lea, Northwood and Mason City, Iowa, and of course, Austin. Games start at 11:30 a.m.
