Youth Bridge.

You may not be aware of it, but there is a thriving youth bridge program here in the city. It meets Sunday afternoons at our upper East Side Cavendish Bridge Club. For over seven years, one of our fellow bridge enthusiasts, Barbara McLendon, has led a team of dedicated volunteers building a junior program from scratch into what it is today. Kerry Kappell directs the duplicate game, Ellen Friedman teaches all the newest students from nine and ten year olds to teenagers. Yoshiko Prager and Martin Stahl complete the team.  

This is a fun, competitive group. The afternoon duplicate game awards master points and runs to seven tables. Several of the children even went to Nationals this year.

This is great news. If you were ever thinking of a way of getting your children or grandchildren interested and involved in our fantastic game, know that this is as good a program as it gets. It is lively and fun. The kids are engaged and they get great instruction and pizza every session. And it is free, thanks in part to continuing grants from our Greater New York Bridge Association (GNYBA) and from the ACBL's National Education Foundation.
