It’s never too late to learn! I recently became a junior master – and I turned 89 a few days ago. I had played social bridge in college (you can guess how long ago that was). I met Julie, whom I married last November, three years ago. She is a Silver Life Master and an avid bridge player. I started watching her play with different partners early in 2018. She taught me bidding conventions (which were completely new to me), and showed me books on the subject. Charlie, who is a Gold Life Master living in the community where we live, started weekly bridge classes. Both Julie and Charlie are not only excellent players, but extremely patient with us newbies. I started playing just over a year ago – with Julie accepting me as her partner. I play weekly now, and am enjoying the challenge.
