Welcome to the Rochester Duplicate Bridge Club!  We look forward to warmly welcoming you at the table (when we get back to the table) - but for now, we've gone 100% online.  For a tutorial on how to play online, click here.

There's all kinds of information available to you by navigating on any of the links on the left side of this webpage; and if you would like more information, please feel free to contact our Club Manager, Sue Greenberg, at 507-365-8236. . .or send her an email at RDBCmanager@gmail.com.
"Away from the clubs - but not far from our hearts."  Every year, the RDBC designates the 3rd week of January to remember our bridge playing friends that we've lost over the past 12 months.  This week, this year, we remember Judy Kulas, Rhea Dickson, Catherine McConnell, and Grant Boadwine.

 Judy Kulas and Marv were such an integral part of our club for so long.  Her bright smile, willingness to help, and easygoing manner will certainly be missed.

 Rhea Dickson hadn't played much in the past couple of years due to health issues, but she and her bridge traveling buddies, Rita, Sue, and Judy went to many tournaments - all over the country and to Canada.  She was a fierce competitor at the table and didn't like to lose.  But she was always gracious, elegantly dressed, smiling and friendly.

 Catherine McConnell was active in our bridge community up until the age of 90, when she explained to Sue she couldn't take lessons anymore because she was moving.  While she passed away this past year at the age of 95, she is remembered in part for her incredible determination and dedication to a lifetime of learning the game.  

 Grant Boadwine was a fierce competitor at the bridge table who played with a variety of partners (and created many hilarious moments for them at several bridge tournaments!).  In 2010, he was the convener for the committee that was trying to consolidate all the disparate bridge clubs in the city.  When we moved to Hadley Creek, he was instrumental in getting our sign on the building.  He will be missed, cowboy hat and all!
