The CARDology Bridge Club has been operating for more than 10 years at the Davies Campus of Sutter Health at 45 Castro Street in San Francisco. Recently, CBE has taken a far more proactive role in its operation with the help of our bridge-playing attorney, Dan Kroll, stimulating increased attendance with the aid of Donald Trump as a foil in his witty recruitment emails.
In the spring of 2017, the CBE board decided to invest in the game in various ways. The most important change is the addition of a Saturday afternoon game that precedes a children’s bridge workshop called CARDology Kidz (more on this in another post). Enthusiasm for both games has been encouraging.
We have hired William Zhu, recently returned from NYC, to direct both games and manage the club. Responses from the players heard by this reporter have been exceptionally positive. The club has purchased new boards and cards with the intention to always have boards pre-duplicated with printed hand records. Some snags with the scoring machines and timely reporting have been quickly addressed by William.
While it has been impossible in the high-rent city of San Francisco to establish a permanent bridge site with the space used for no other purpose, CARDology offers a quiet room, good lighting, and surprisingly easy street parking in a safe neighborhood.
We intend for CARDology to play an important role in our youth outreach in 2018 (students play for free). We hope you will keep our game on your bridge calendar. And let us know what you like (or even dislike) about the rededicated club.
Wednesday game at 7:00. $7 table fee. Open, stratified.
Saturday game at 12:15. $7 table fee. Open, stratified.
Table fees will increase to $8, $4 for students, beginning in 2018.
