Gaymsters is pronounced GAME-stirs. Although a gamester is defined as a
habitual gambler, no wagering is allowed at our games.
We play “party bridge”. We laugh, have fun, bid and play the hands, but we are definitely not always serious. We do have some serious players among us who compete at tournaments nationwide, but don’t be daunted. They give beginners, novices, and casual players the chance to grow and learn from their expertise. Knowledge gained from discussion of a certain hand can be golden. Our environment is more for learning, improving one’s game, and ENJOYING it.
We have no dues, but contributions are occasionally requested to buy supplies like playing cards, score pads, pencils, disposable eating utensils and plates, plastic cups, etc.
We play almost every Tuesday and Sunday, except if a major holiday lands on one of those days. All scheduled game days and times are posted for each month on the Game Schedule page. Click on the Q above for times and the K for location!
The Tuesday games at CoH “officially” start at 7:00 p.m., although some early-birds arrive sooner. Games run until 9:00 p.m. or so (we complete the round), but no later (the staff usually wants to go home by then!). One does not have to arrive exactly on time, but try to arrive no later than 7:30 - incomplete foursomes may leave then!
The Sunday game sessions “officially” start at 2:00 p.m. (again, usually a little earlier) and run until at least 5:00 p.m., but may go later if there is another activity going on at the church.
Times and locations of special sessions at a member’s home, should they occur, will be posted on the "Schedule" page.
The Club has also been known to throw a combination potluck/bridge party around certain holidays such as Christmas, Labor Day, Memorial Day, or Independence Day, if one of our members graciously offers his home to serve as a venue.
We may bring snacks and/or soft drinks to share, but these are certainly optional.
Please note that our games are Zero Tolerance for hate and discrimination. Rude behavior, which is not tolerated, only detracts from the reason we are there = to enjoy the game!

One can also drop by during a game session at the Cathedral of Hope on Tuesday nights or Sunday afternoons. You are always welcome to move into the “mix”, get comfortable, and enjoy the logic, strategies and challenges involved.
