FREE Bridge Lessons
Starting Saturday, January 10th

BridgeHave you played a little bridge here and there (perhaps in college or a few years back)?  Do you know how to play but feel you would like to learn the basics to make you more sure of your game?  Perhaps you have good card sense (experience with euchre, spades, or other bidding games) and would like to learn the game of bridge.  These lessons will start at the beginning bridge level and will give plenty time to play.

I will offer a series of 6 free lessons here at the Cove starting on Saturday, January 10th, at 12:45 pm.  The lessons will run for 2 and a half to 3 hours and will cover basics of play and bidding.  We will have fun and you will spend time playing the cards each day.

You do not need a partner to attend the course, but I would like to try for tables of 4 so I can plan the cards for playing.

Bridge is a game that is good for your brain... makes you think and is fun at the same time.  If you would like to join us, please contact Donna McIlwain at 216-640-9885 or by e-mail at

News from Ted

TedMerry Christmas, one and all. It's Christmas Weekend at Cypress Cove. This weekend really is all about the Christmas festivities, so bring your Christmas spirit!

Enjoy Live Christmas Music w/ Lana & Friends on Thursday night at Lakeside. That's also Nude Night, so you'll get a free glass of wine with your dinner entree if you dine nude.

The Christmas Lights Hayride is Friday night. Enjoy an old fashioned hayride as you drive around the Cove looking at Christmas lights and singing Carols.

We also have Suicide Karaoke w/ DJ Xavier on Friday night at Scuttlebutts. It's a mix of regular Karaoke and Suicide Karaoke. What's Suicide Karaoke? You don't know what you are going to sing until you get up there. You'll have a song picked randomly from a list of popular favorites and standards. It's a little nerve wracking, but fun. Plus you can win prizes for participating.

Get started decorating now, because Saturday is the Christmas Golf Cart Parade. Decorate your golf cart, bicycle, or just yourself, and join us in the parade. It's so much fun.

Christmas Parade

The RC Yacht Club will be gracing us once again with their Christmas Lighted Boat Parade in the evening. They have meter tall solings that they decorate in Christmas lights and float by the Lakeside Restaurant. It's really quite special.

Stay for the Christmas Dance w/ Live Music by The Papa Jack Express!

Have you got your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" t-shirt yet?

They are priced at just $5 each, so we are not making any money on the shirts. We are just hoping to spark some word of mouth marketing. Wear it to town, to the grocery store; just wear it while you are out and about.

So if you are a proud Cypress Cove member and want to help spread the word, please pick up your new t-shirt today! - Thank you

Ask Me About
Cap d'Agde in France!

By the way, I just want to thank everyone for doing this. It has been so much fun getting new pictures from exotic locations all over the US and the world! We have the absolute best, most loyal members I can imagine. I am so grateful.

Where have you worn your "Ask Me About Cypress Cove" T-shirt?
