BIG ANNOUNCEMENT

I am happy to announce that The Bridge Studio is opening up this week on a limited basis.

Here is the limited schedule:

Mondays 12:00 pm OPEN Shawn Tate 816-465-1540 or tatorcoupmil@yahoo.com for partnerships

Tuesday, 7:00 pm NLM Tim Hays 816-361-8558 or t7288279@gmail.com for partnerships

Wednesday, 12:00 pm OPEN Tim Hays 816-361-8558 or t7288279@gmail.com for partnerships

Fridays 12:00 pm OPEN Shawn Tate 816-465-1540 or tatorcoupmil@yahoo.com for partnerships

*Coronavirus Stipulations*
Masks will be required to play and will be provided, as will disposable gloves (optional) as part of your entry fee. If you prefer your own mask, we encourage you to use them instead.

Your temperature will be taken by medical instant read thermometers before you are allowed entry, 100.2 F will be the cutoff. These are the same type as my internist uses.

We have drafted a blanket legal statement that all patrons will have to sign agreeing to absolve everyone of legal liability if a case were contracted from the studio

Unfortunately, with the cost increase of masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer, coupled with the expected low volume, we plan to raise the entry fee to $10.

We have removed 1/2 the tables and will only use 13 maximum and they will be spaced apart. We will not set up extra tables if more people wish to play. As of right now we will not be requiring pre-registration
The studio has hospital grade hand sanitizer on wall dispensers and in pump containers.
The gloves are nitrile which avoids latex allergies and they fit more snugly for better card handling. Also, the glove sizes will be available in medium and large.
The Studio has new carpet and tile. The holes in the walls have been patched and painted.
There will not be any ice nor iced tea nor any food being served. The Coke machine is filled and you may bring in your own snacks as long as they are not messy.

Aside from all the other information above, we are pleased to announce that we are the FIRST KANSAS CITY LOCATION to have applied MICROSHIELD360.

https://microshield360.com/commercial/our-technology/

This proprietary permanent coating system creates self -disinfecting surfaces that work 24/7 to reduce and eliminate pathogens.
This product is approved in the EU for viruses as well as bacteria. It is approved for bacteria by the FDA and is awaiting approval for viruses.
IT IS EPA REGISTERED AND FDA APPROVED FOR DIRECT FOOD CONTACT SURFACES.
Cleaning the table or any surface it has been applied to will NOT remove the coating. It is PERMANENT!
This has been applied to all tables, chairs, bidding boxes, bathroom surfaces, kitchen area surfaces, file cabinets, blinds, and more. Basically, everything you can touch has been sprayed (including door handles). Not the bidding cards and not the playing cards. We were concerned the spray would ruin the cards and it is just impractical to do so.

Twice a year the Bridge Studio offers six FREE BEGINNER BRIDGE LESSONS geared to the Absolute Beginner. These lessons begin on the First Monday evening in March and the second Monday evening in September.

More information, including how to sign up, will be posted here approximately two weeks before the lessons begin.

HOWEVER, the September session is canceled due to COVID. We await the possibility of an available vaccine before deciding on the spring sessions. Sorry.

In the event of a major winter storm or tornado warnings in the spring, game closings will be posted on this website one hour before the start of the game.
