A great way to meet people and see friends, this group is for intermediate players who play either Goren or American Contract Bridge. There is an annual fee of $5.00 and players need to make sure that they have paid their CUWC membership fee. We play three rounds of six hands each and stay for lunch (no charge for the room). Martha and Paulette are excited to be co-coordinators and look forward to a new year.

#6 Hiking and Waterfalls

Please join us for fun, fellowship and great exercise.  Upstate South Carolina has a huge number of beautiful waterfalls with both easy access and challenging ones. We will try to hike once a month. Detailed information about the falls and the hike will be emailed ahead of time. Come enjoy what the area has to offer, wildflowers in the spring, birds year round, and beautiful views. Contact: Pam Bodenhorn, 864-650-6214

#7 Excursions

It’s always more fun to do something as a group, from shopping, to tours, to physical activity. You may be interested in: Antiquing, Junking, Shopping...whatever you call a day out to rummage through a grouping of stores or perhaps a flea market. Take an occasional day off with us to spend some money or just some time with a fun group. Gardens, farms and flowers… get together to learn and share plant knowledge by touring public and private gardens. Tour local specialty farms or visit state parks and University land. Hither and yon… learn more about our local culture and history by visiting attractions and touring the area.  We will try to plan day trips about once a month taking advantage of what the upstate has to offer.

Interested in being part of a group that attends, cheers, and supports our Women's teams?  Interested in seeing the facilities...learning the rules?  Basketball, Diving, Golf, Rowing, Soccer, Tennis, Track and Field, and Volleyball.  Let's make our support noticeable by going together (please continue to attend on your own as well!)  Throughout the school year, you will get information about a particular game/match/event and where to meet the other members.

#9 Wine Dinner

The host picks the wine (grape type) and provides food (host's choice: appetizers, dinner, dessert). Light hearted discussion of the wines' worth and pairing would be expected.  Each event will have a limited number of spaces determined by the host. Spouses/significant others are included. Signing up indicates that you are willing to host or cohost as well as participate. We will plan an event on the third Saturday of each month (except for July and August).
