Be a Mental Gymnast: Play Duplicate Bridge with Us, Face-to-Face

Every Wednesday in September except September 22 we will be playing (and hopefully thinking) at The Gathering Place at 1 pm. We welcome duplicate bridge players from outside Fearrington who are friends of Fearrington residents.

We average five or more tables and enjoy cookies supplied by one of our players, chocolate candy (who doesn’t want Just One Piece), and peanut butter pretzels. So, even if you don’t score, you can enjoy some pleasant conversation and food.

If you have any questions, please contact Jean Hjelle (919-548-6216) or
