For players who wish to ease into duplicate bridge play, a novice game is held every Saturday in Calumet Township. None of the participants has more than 100 master points, thereby providing an environment that focuses on the emerging player.

A half hour of free lessons precedes the game to help provide necessary skills followed by a slightly abbreviated game which provides time at the table.

For more information on the novice game, contact Barb Walczak at

The top 50 (The list includes 51 names since there was a tie for the 50th spot.) duplicate bridge players from the Highland and Calumet Township games during the month of April are as follows: Dave Bigler, Alfred Simmons, Yuan Hsu, Alan Geller, Barbara Graegin, Zafar Khan, Dolores Gerdes, Joseph Chin, Indra Gupta, Louis Nimnicht, Trudy McKamey, Helen Miller, Robert Porter, Charlotte Abernethy, George Roeper, Howard Schmid, Wayne Carpenter, Steven Watson, Catherine Mason, Robert Ferguson, James Angell, John Chmielowiec, Anne Murphy, Lynne Kostopoulos, Anna Urick, Pat Valiska, John Goring, Ruth Westberg, Bill Kilbride, Lois Edelstein, Barbara Walczak, Rosietta Brown, James Beiriger, Mary Schumm, Don Valiska, Carol Osgerby, Faye Anderson, Carolyn Potasnik, Wayne Hiser, Tom Hallum, Dolores Marshall, Jacquelyn Beiriger, Gale Osgerby, Conrad Staudacher, Charles Schultz, Leonard Yarsh, Constance Stevens, Edgar Lucas, Charlene Millard, Emelia Alberico and Verge Freeland
