About a dozen friends get together every Wednesday morning at 11:30 a.m. at Three Sisters Tavern and Grill. After having lunch together they play bridge until about 3:30 p.m.
The bridge club began about the time that Colorado City incorporated during the 1960’s. At that time there was also a bridge club in Rye. The two have now combined into the Colorado City/Rye Bridge Club.
The members are looking for new players. The current roster is female but over the years as many as five or six men have been part of the group. According to Phyllis Mullins and Ann Bush, the men are welcome.
“We are happy to have anyone who wants to play,” said Bush. “Years ago when I started (12 years ago) the group voted on weather to offer you an invitation to play. We are a little more relaxed about the whole process.”
Mullins, who has played for 23 years, describes the Bridge Club as a lot of friends getting together. “So many of us have common interests besides bridge,” she shared. “We quilt together, golf together, play bridge together and share an interest in each other's lives.”
