Bridge & other card games/Bridge rotation

Question
Can you send a bridge rotation for 12couples. We play once a month for 8 months (September through April), 3 host couples each month with 4 couples per house (2 tables) Each couple should host twice and each couple should play every other at least 2 times if possible.
Thank you for your help, and possibly saving my sanity!

Answer
Hi,

Sorry for the long delay. I am unable to meet all of your conditions. Here is a movement for 12 pairs  in three different locations each month over an 8 month period. Assign each pair a number 1-12.


Month     Location 1   Location 2  Location 3     Host
1        12-5-1-10     7-8-11-9     2-3-4-6      12-8-3
2        12-6-2-11     8-9-1-10     3-4-5-7      2-9-4
3        12-7-3-1      9-10-2-11    4-5-6-8      7-10-5
4        12-8-4-2      10-11-3-1    5-6-7-9      8-11-6
5        12-9-5-3      11-1-4-2     6-7-8-10     12-1 7
6        12-10-6-4     1-2-5-3      7-8-9-11     10-3-9
7        12-11-7-5     2-3-6-4      8-9-10-1     11-4-1
8        12-1-8-6      3-4-7-5      9-10-11-2    6-5-2

A pair might see another pair 3 or 4 times and there are a few instances in which a pair doesn't see another pair at all (good if they're fighting).

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.
