Whether you are a youngster, in your middle years, or an “oldster”, you will find wonderful ways to enjoy your time each summer, and you’ll make long lasting friends at EYC!

EYC Bridge

Bridge at Ephraim Yacht Club


The summer bridge program at EYC is set to be enjoyed, following the same model as has been scheduled in previous years.  If circumstance requires a change, notification will be done via email to all members.

Open Play will be offered on Mondays from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., beginning on June 10th and on Thursdays from 9:30-11:30, beginning on June 13th.  The American Standard System is the basis of play.  This is geared to members who have taken lessons at the club, or those lessons elsewhere and experience are comparable.  No partner of signup is needed for open play offerings.    

Weekly Couples Bridge will be held on Tuesdays, June 11th, at 4:30 p.m.  Players should come with a partner, or contact one of the coordinators who may be able to help match a partner request.  Players keep the same partner all evening.  The Tuesday group generally selects a restaurant for dinner out following the bridge games, but that is optional.  

Please remember, a paid EYC membership is required to participate in any bridge programs.

If you have questions about any of the bridge offerings, please contact Suzanne Lisle.  [email protected]


Ephraim Yacht Club BuncoMany ladies of EYC enjoy playing Bunco on Monday nights at 7pm from late June to early August. This is an all-inclusive group and Bunco is a very easy game.  So even if you have never heard of it, come anyway. You’ll learn it in 3 minutes, and you’ll have lots of new friends before the evening is over. The conversation is just as important as the game. Simple snacks are provided, and we always take a short break to enjoy the sunset! See you there.  This activity supports EYC educational programs.
