**Unfortunately, the Bridge Contest is no longer operational. We hope the code base will be of use to others with similar projects in mind.**

A national virtual bridge engineering contest with prizes for middle and high school kids, grades 6 to 12, but anyone can enter for fun. Based on the award-wining Bridge Designer client software, now open source through this project. Web site infrastructure supports worldwide participation in qualifying and semifinal rounds with a tiny administrative staff. The new Rails back end is a RubyMine project. Thanks to JetBrains for this mega development environment!
