Recently, your intrepid webmaster headed south to Carleton College to kibitz and chat with members of the Carleton Bridge Club. Great to see smiles from students as they headed into the lion’s den to compete against one another.
Some faces were familiar; some new. And after watching for a bit, not difficult to determine that some students had been studying, learning and playing for some time; others were just sticking their toes into the “bridge pool.”
Irrespective of their knowledge base, however, all the players were having a great time!
We were thrilled to see some of the students at our Autumn Sectional in Oakdale – with one pair achieving first in their flight! Alexander Frieden (Carlton Bridge Club President) and Thomas Scruggs placed 8th in Flight A, 4th in Flight B and FIRST in Flight C with an almost 59% game!

Bridge is challenging, intriguing, infinitely interesting – and – FUN!
