The Frederick Bridge Club hosts a variety of duplicate bridge games. All players are welcome, regardless of experience or ability. If you would like to have fun, meet new people and improve your bridge game, the club offers beginner/intermediate games (0-499 master points) on Monday afternoons. On Thursdays we offer both a beginner/intermediate (0-499) and an Open game for players of all experience levels. All of these games begin promptly at 12:30 p.m. and take place at the Frederick Moose Lodge, 828 E. Patrick St., Frederick. An additional Open game for players of all experience levels is held at 6:45 p.m. every Monday a Citizens Nursing Home, 1920 Rosemont Ave., Frederick. There is also an Open Team Game at the Moose on the first and third Sundays of each month beginning at 1 p.m., assuming sufficient teams register.

If you and your partner want to play, just show up a few minutes early. Need a partner? Call Ann Lebherz at 301-371-7587. For more information email Manager@FrederickBridgeClub.org.
