The Bridge Studio is very pleased to announce that Carol Calkins is now the owner of the Friday day game and that Tim Hays is now the owner of the Monday day game. As everyone knows, both of them are highly competent directors and manage their games at a very high professional level.

Carol would like to inform everyone that the Tuesday and Friday game will continue with a light lunch through the month of March but both games will go to snacks only beginning April 7. She also wishes to inform everyone that beginning April 7, the Tuesday day game will start at Noon.

Tim would like to inform everyone that the Monday game will start at Noon beginning April 6. Tim would also like to inform everyone that beginning Monday, March 2, lunch will no longer be served and only snacks will be served.

I know all of us are very happy to see that both of Sue’s games will continue to be in such good hands.
