One of the most rewarding things you can do for bridge is teaching fifth-grade students. It's fun, and the kids have such a wonderful time with the game. Join our team of teachers and volunteers. You need not be a bridge expert or a school teacher or bridge teacher. What you do need is a desire to work with kids for one hour a week.   

We will hold training sessions so you will feel comfortable working with one of our school teams! If you are interested, please contact Carol Mathews at or Jim Schneider at

The new Islander is out! If you did not recieve one in the mail, that's because we don't send them in the mail any more. Click here for a copy. And send us your email so we can email you the next islander (click here).

We are looking for interesting articles for upcoming Islanders – especially interesting hands from recent tournaments or club games, or questions on protocol that some of our local directors might answer (like "ruling the game" from the bulletin). Contact Mark Shaiman (
