The Pequot Library will begin hosting weekly meetings of a bridge group that is open to players at all levels of play. The Southport Bridge Group, a member of the American Contract Bridge League, will have its first meeting at the library on Monday, Aug. 4. Membership in the ACBL -- which has 3,200 other bridge clubs around the U. S.-- is not necessary to play with the Southport group.
The Southport Bridge Group meetings will be from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the library, 720 Pequot Ave.
Players may arrive for coffee and conversation first, with play starting at 10:30 a.m. The game is stratified for all levels of bridge; winners gain master points. Three flights of play are available.
The cost is $13 per meeting and reservations are encouraged, but walk-ins are welcome. Players should bring a bagged lunch. Meeting dates in August and September are: Aug. 4, 11, 18 and 25; Sept. 8, 15, 22 and 29.
