Mo-Kan Bridge Academy

GAME RESULTS:  Next game Dec. 16, 2022.  Sign up for future Friday games by 5 p.m. on the day before.   

This is an 18 board game, beginning at 10:30 and done around 1 p.m.  On the 3rd Friday of each month we try to go out as a group to a local restaurant after the game.  Games will cancel if at least 12 people have not pre-registered.  Vaccinations recommended,  masks requested if not vaccianted.

Mo-Kan Bridge is just getting started.   Their first duplicate game is offered at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in Lee’s Summit on Fridays, from 10:30 to 1.  There will be a variety of directors directing this game, but I will be the director for many of the games.  There will be both a novice section (for those with less than 50 masterpoints) and an open section, provided there are at least 3 tables per section.  If both sections cannot be run, then one combined open section with stratification will be played instead. Partners are guaranteed if you can’t find your own on any given day.  (This might mean you play with the director, in which case you would be playing in the open section.)

Cost is $8 or less.  Please check out the Mo-Kan Bridge Academy website for details on costs and this game.

Bridge Competition Scholarship

Normally Unit 131 holds a student competition at the Spring Sectional Tournament.  We’ll try for spring 2023!  ALL PLAYERS MUST HAVE THEIR COVID VACCINATIONS!  The students will play in their own section if there are at least 3 tables. If at least 10 students don’t participate, those attending will play in the 0-299 section with the adults. This is for students age 18 and younger with less than 20 masterpoints. Winners will be awarded masterpoints and the Unit provides a trophy to the top student winners as well. In addition, Kathy Rolfe is providing a $50 scholarship to the top winners residing within Unit 131 through the Rolfe Bridge Fund administered through the Truman Heartland Community Foundation. It will be free to play.  Contact Kathy via e-mail  or call 816-237-0519 to let her know you plan on playing.

The 2019 Spring Tournament hosted 3 tables for the competition bridge scholarship on June 1.  Finishing in first place were Peter Caughron and his grandmother Nancy Caughron (playing to complete the 3 tables) with a 60% game, picking up .92 Silver masterpoints and winning Peter a $50 scholarship when he graduates from high school next year.  In second place were Patrick and Michael Caughron with a 57.5 % game picking up .69 masterpoints and $50 each in scholarship money to be used this fall at their college.
