Benefits of Bridge for Youth and Adults

At the Unit 131 Fall Sectional Tournament on Oct. 28, 2023 at 2 p.m.  we  had 6 current youth students of Mo-Kan Bridge Academy and regular players in our Friendly Friday game and one former student (now all grown up) competing in the 0-299 masterpoint section.  There were 8 tables in play.

Charlie and Alex came in 3rd EW and 5th overall with a 54.39% game for .78 silver master points.  Robert and Rose came in 3rd NS with a 52.31% game for .47 masterpoints.  While Ana and Tom did not scratch they had a perfectly respectable game (better than mine!) of 46.22% for 5th EW.  For their efforts Charlie, Alex, Robert, and Rose will each receive a $50 Scholarship towards their post-secondary education when they graduate from high school.  Kathy Rolfe provides this scholarship through the Rolfe Bridge Fund administered through the Truman Heartland Community Foundation.
