TIP OF THE WEEK: ACBL Guidelines for Bridge Etiquette
and Rules: When play commences, do not detach a card from
your hand until it is your turn to play and you have decided to play that card.
Do not pull up a card, push it back into your hand, and then pull up another
card. Nor should you detach a card and then replace it to play another
card. Also do not detach your card before it is your turn to play and
never rearrange your hand when you are out of a suit.
All of these maneuvers provide additional valuable information to the declarer.

Studio Aces: The Bridge Studio Aces Make Memories Matter!
This year the Bridge Studio Aces topped their previous record raising funds for Alzheimer's N. S.
It was a misty, foggy afternoon but our spirits were not dampened, not when we were raising over $7,930! Details to follow. In the mean time enjoy a few pictures (attached) and the attached "Care for the Caregivers" an ongoing educational endeavor as the Bridge Studio focuses on Alzheimer's disease.
