Research from the Illinois Institute of Technology and others indicates that card playing and board games may actually contribute to a healthier brain.
Game playing also can stimulate the mind, relieve stress and improve energy.
So imagine the potential brain benefits of learning to play, and possibly even challenging in a match, one of the world’s finest bridge players.
Grand Master Eric Rodwell, who grew up in Lafayette, Ind., is coming home for a friendly game of cards, teaching and playing at the Arthur M. Glick JCC for the inaugural A Day of Bridge.
Some 100 players are expected to join in the event, including Rodwell’s parents (how is that for a family get together).
A Day of Bridge includes a seminar with the grand master, a sanctioned game, and the opportunity to win a chance to play with Eric. Each registrant will be entered into a drawing for this opportunity.
Rodwell is one of the all-time top masterpoint holders in the American Contract Bridge League. Players of all skill levels will learn from him about playing defense against a suit contract.
The event is open to all, and players from around the Midwest have already registered. Get details and sign up to join us on June 11 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the events page of our website.
