We are getting ready to launch the new Bridge league in about 2 weeks, no firm date yet, it could even be sooner.
I have the distinct pleasure and honor of being the HA of this new league. For many years I was a tournament bridge player in real life, and attained a ranking of "Master" in the ACBL (Anerican Contract Bridge League), so I know the game very well.
Bridge is, in the eyes of many, the "royalty" of card games. It is not difficult to play (if you can play Spades, you can play Bridge) but the bidding before the play is quite complex. Yahoo has a decent introduction to the game in its "how to play" section, and there are many online resources for this game.
In any event, we are looking for experienced Eliters who know the game to come on board, both as players and as TDs. It is important, at the beginning especially, that we have a core group of TDs who actually know the game pretty well, because we expect to have to do a lot of quick-and-dirty instruction.
We are also looking for an experienced SrTD who'd like to come on board as an AA and help launch this league. This person must be quite familiar with the game, of course.
Any of you are welcome to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and discussion.
I'm really looking forward to this one!
