WE HAVE A FACEBOOK PAGE! CLICK HERE TO OPEN IT!

Our facebook page is new, and there isn't much on it yet.

I will use it for news and occasional announcements.  We can also use it to discuss interesting hands and bidding, and anything else bridge related.  We will NOT use it for political discussions, gossip, etc.  :-)   I think everyone understands why.  

I would especially love it if some of you can post some pictures and bridge news on the site.

If you want to use the facebook page to ask about a hand, I will try to answer as often as time permits.  Perhaps some of out other experienced players will help out, as well.
