The Bridge Place is where you can play your favorite game to your heart's content, but we do ask that you observe some basic guidelines. We are a zero tolerance club and have some rules to help you understand what that means. And always remember that Bridge is a GAME that we PLAY. Enjoy yourself!
You might make someone's day. And please remember to wear your name tag. Not all of us have a memory for names!
They may be your next good friends, or even better, a wonderful future partner.

Practice grace under fire. Then move on to the next hand.
