Perhaps the best one-sentence description of how bridge players feel about their game is playwright George S. Kaufman's parody of a famous remark: "I'd rather be South than be President." But what causes that feeling? The Bridge World magazine asked bridge players to describe briefly their main reasons for playing bridge, and the most important rewards they obtained from the game. The greatly varied submissions were as follows:

The Rewards of Bridge
ADVENTURE
"Every Hand an Adventure" is what bridge is all about. It is the ultimate in intellectual competition. As you learn more, ever-increasing vistas unfold for your experimentation and enjoyment. Once you try it, you'll never give it up.
- Bob Lipsitz

CHALLENGE
As people develop and grow they search out challenges suitable to their current situation. Some never outgrow video games, but those who seek the highest level of mental stimulation move on to activities such as bridge.
- Mike Lawrence

After the successful evening occurred in June, many people asked to replicate the event.
We are invited to join the "Open door" session at the club of Lamone.
Objective of the evening is to learn the basic rule of the game while starting playing bridge.
For the scope several members of the club will be available to help teaching and supporting the people who want to try.
A bar will be available for a beer or a soft drink (a small contribution of 2.-CHF is requested).
Come and enjoy playing this amazing game.

The club is in the same bulding of Protected content .

Hope to see many of you at the club.
