Social bridge mailing list available

For bridge students and beginners, I've created an email list called "Social Bridge" with the intent of providing a place for students to ask questions and make arrangements to play bridge socially.

Clearly the best way to improve at bridge is to play as often as you can, but finding a game that isn't too competitive or intimidating can be difficult.

The list members should all be local to the Pasadena/Arcadia area, and mostly current or former students of my bridge classes at PCC. So it should remain a small list of folks who mostly know each other and would like to discuss bridge or get together to practice.

You can join the list by clicking http://mail.bridgemojo.com/mailman/listinfo/social and using the "Subscribing to Social" form -- or just drop me a note at the Contact link.

How SAYC Happened

In viewing the landscape of "online bridge" these days, I thought I'd tell some of my history with SAYC. It's sort of my fault. See the full story here:
