St. Louis Regional Tournament

The St. Louis Regional Tournament will occur the days of August 13th to August 19th.

All other games at Bridge Haven will be cancelled for the week. Please plan on returning the week of August 20th for bridge fun with the Bridge Haven family.

Charity Game Every Friday at 10:30 am

We had a request from a group of players to have a Friday AM game. After much discussion Chuck agreed to have a Charity game every Friday am. ACBL allows more points for charity games. The cost is an extra dollar that goes to the charity. Our charity is Backstoppers. If you are looking for ACBL master points this is a good way to earn MP. On Friday 9/29, first place earned 2.04 ACBL MP. IF you have questions feel free to call, Chuck at 618-530-4300 or Barbara at 314-374-2760.
