As you can see from the photo below, the sun has set on our Fall Bridge Retreat at Trout Lodge. If you ask anyone that attended, I am sure that they will agree that a good time was had by all in picturesque Potosi, Missouri, where Trout Lodge is located. I know what you’re thinking. Will be there be another bridge retreat? Thank you for asking, and yes, there will be another bridge retreat at Trout Lodge. Our 2019 Spring Bridge Retreat is going to be from March 5 – 7, be sure to mark your calendar. Asides from boatloads of bridge & classes there are plenty of other activities at Trout Lodge, such as arts & crafts, nature hikes, horseback riding, zip lining, archery and much more. There is fun for everyone! It is just a great place to take a break from the Hustle and bustle of everyday life. Trout Lodge is nestled into 5200 acres of picturesque, forest covered hills and a 360-acre private lake in Missouri’s Eastern Ozarks. The event is open to players of all levels and we have several new exciting events in the works for the 2019 Spring retreat. Click on the PHOTO to see all the fun we had at the Fall Bridge Break.

I’m Jay, the owner of J’s Bridge Pad. You may be asking what J’s Bridge Pad is, and that would be a good question. We do a lot, so what we do is hard to define. Our motto at J’s Bridge Pad is “All Things Bridge!” We have been open for over two years; it has been quite a wild ride. Some say that J’s Bridge Pad is the premier destination to play bridge in St. Louis. OK, it’s mostly me saying this. But if you stop by, I think you will agree that this is not too much of an exaggeration. In addition to playing duplicate sanctioned bridge, hosting social and private bridge groups, we also have mentor games, lessons, and group classes with experienced bridge teachers.
We are also part of the common games system, which allows you to compare your game performance with over 300 clubs worldwide. At J’s Bridge Pad we pride ourselves on being on the cutting edge of bridge technology. Our color touch screen scoring system, using Kindle tablets, has been an overwhelming success. They are very easy to use, if you don’t believe me, just ask someone! We have provided computer program Bridge Baron to 100+ players in St. Louis metro area at a 40% discount. This software is one of the best bridge learning tools I have found.
We are located in the heart of West County at Clarkson and Manchester Road, just a hop, skip and a throw from Highway 40. (Check under directions on the website, btw there are stairs, as well as an elevator to access our space). So come by and check out the vibrant, yet cozy confines of J’s Bridge Pad. It appears that this blog post has morphed into a commercial for J’s Bridge Pad, sorry about that. I’ll try to make sure that it does not happen again. Actually, if you have any ideas for our next blog post, please send them to me. Happy bridge playing!
