WEEKLY GROUP ACTIVITIES ARE FOR SOCIAL ENJOYMENT AND DO NOT HAVE AN INSTRUCTOR. EACH WEEK, AFTER THE FIRST WEEK OF THE SESSION, YOU ARE ASKED TO NOTIFY THE FACILITATOR IF YOU WILL BE PLAYING THE COMING WEEK. ALTHOUGH THERE IS NO FORMAL INSTRUCTION, MOST GROUPS ARE ABLE TO ASSIST THOSE UNFAMILIAR WITH THE ACTIVITY TO HELP YOU LEARN THE GAME.

Instructor(s): Ed Butterworth

In Chicago Four-Deal Bridge, each hand is scored duplicate style, independent of the scoring on all other hands. It’s recommended that players line up their partners prior to arrival. Players play with the same partner for all 20 hands (five rounds of four hands each). If there are only three players at one table, accommodations are made by playing with a “dummy bidder” from another table. If there are an odd number of partners present, a team may volunteer to split up for double dummy play OR a double dummy team will be created for the day. Details of this double dummy option will be discussed in the first session.

Instructor(s): Ed Butterworth and Colette Pagnotti

This group plays duplicate bridge for two winners (NS & EW). Based on the number of tables, 18 to 24 hands will be played weekly. Players need to have a partner and need to be signed up with the coordinator by the Wednesday before each Friday in order to play. Since an even number of teams is needed, it may be necessary to drop a team from that week’s play. No team will be dropped more than once per semester until all the other teams have been dropped. Come see us on a Friday morning if you are interested, and we will get you started!

Hand and Foot and Triple Play are forms of Canasta. Hand and foot is a card game for four players, two sets of partners to a table. A Hand is 11 cards, and a Foot is 11 cards. Each player must play their Hand before they can play their Foot. The game is won by the partners when one has played his/her Foot and the other agrees to go out. Triple Play uses three hands and requires formation of additional Canastas. Come learn and play!
