QUESTION: I need a rotation for 12 couples with 4 couples playing in a home at one time and each hostess entertaining twice.  Thank you.

Answer
Hi,

I cannot help you with the locations other than to suggest that you can assign 4 pairs to one of the three homes each month.

For  the hostesses you can try the following using the rotation that I gave you.

Month     Hostesses

1       1,2,3
2       4,5,6
3       10,11,12
4       7,8,9
5       1,2,3
6       4,5,6
7       10,11,12
8       7,8,9

For the ninth month you can ask for gracious volunteers.

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.
