Bridge & other card games/Rotation for Bridge Marathon

Question
We are starting a bridge marathon for 10 partners. We will play Sept-May (9 months), so that each partnership will play every other partnership.  I have worked for hours on a rotation schedule and have not yet achieved one, nor have I found one in any materials that I have read.  We play to assign each partnership a number, then print a schedule, with the individual couples deciding who will host, etc.  Your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

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.
