Wednesday Evening BAM Back with a Twist

Join us at the Bridge Center Wednesday night, April 26 for the return of the popular BAM and Pair game. The Pair game will be stratified with a lower first strata, giving newer players a better chance to win points.

Due to current ACBL restrictions, which we hope will change soon, we can’t award BAM points, but we will have free plays for the BAM winners who don’t score points in the Pair game. Two chances to win!
