Bridge Building

2013.05.15 - Old Saybrook, CT - Dede Brown (third from left) laughs as she is offered a deck of cards by Virginia Bundonis of Old Saybrook while playing with Ogden Bigelow (L) of Essex Meadows and Phil McNemer during a bridge tournament at the Old Saybrook Pavilion. The weekly tournament, played every Wednesday from 12-4, is sponsored by Old Saybrook Parks and Recreation and is directed by Claire Sauer of Lyme. Sauer, who started the duplicate bridge game about ten years ago says "duplicate bridge is often very cutthroat," but because master points are not rewarded the Old Saybrook game has a reputation "as a friendly game."
