Description of Event:  Each person playing will be given a tally which shows his number and beginning table number.  Layer will place their name on the tally.  Each person will play four hands of bridge per table.  Winning pair will move clockwise to next table.  Players must rotate partners after each game, never using the same person for a partner.  Players will cut a card, the two highest will play together and the two lowest will be partners.  Four games will be played.  Total score must be written on each card.

NOTE:  Any changes will be announced the day of the event.  Any circumstances not covered by the following rules will be ruled upon by the event coordinator.

Rules for Scoring:  The scoring for the Bridge Tournament will be as a Party Bridge.  Two decks of cards are used alternately unless there is a misdeal. If this occurs, the dealer will use the same deck which will be cut as usual by the opponent on his right.  If there is no bid, a re-deal will be in order. Game score not vulnerable 300 points, vulnerable 500 points.  Not vulnerable after second game unless third game is made.  A game made always cuts off opponents’ part score.  Double and redouble is permitted.  Do not give 50 points for fulfilling doubled contract.  Revoke (renege):  When a revoke has been established, (penalty) after play ceases, two tricks are transferred to the non-offending side, if the side that has revoked has won two or more tricks after the revoke.

After playing four hands, scores are placed on tallies and the winning pair will move to the next table.  Partners change and each will play different opponents.
