I am a retired teacher from Iowa who moved to Rochester in 2005. My parents were life long bridge players, and I started playing “party bridge” in college. I began to take bridge lessons through Community Education to learn more of the rules and conventions as well as meet others who were new to the game. I now play regularly at the Rochester Duplicate Bridge Club with a community of bridge players who have become great friends.
