Question
I need a schedule for 13 couples for a bridge marathon for 8 and 9 months playing.  Thank you.

Answer
Hi,

Since there are 13 pairs, one of them needs to sit out each month.

Month        Pair Matchups

 1        13-2  12-3  11-4  10-5  9-6  8-7    Pair 1 sits out
 2         1-3  13-4  12-5  11-6  10-7 9-8    Sit out = 2
 3         2-4   1-5  13-6  12-7  11-8 10-9   Sit out = 3
 4         3-5   2-6  1-7   13-8  12-9 11-10  Sit out = 4
 5         4-6   3-7  2-8   1-9  13-10 12-11  Sit out = 5
 6         5-7   4-8  3-9   2-10  1-11 13-12  Sit out = 6
 7         6-8   5-9  4-10  3-11  2-12 1-13   Sit out = 7
 8         7-9   6-10 5-11  4-12  3-13 2-1    Sit out = 8
 9         8-10  7-11 6-12  5-13  4-1  3-2    Sit out = 9

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.
