Question
I need a party bridge rotation schedule for 16 couples, 8 months of play--two tables to a location.  No one couple plays another couple more than once.  Is this possible?

I can answer questions on bidding and on cardplay with the caveat that the former may necessarily involve some subjectivity. I have been playing tournament bridge for over 20 years and I have won several regional tournaments.
