History
In the early 90's, a small group of people began playing Bid Whist at Club Troy for socialables.

Later, they all regrouped and began to play at Club Some Place Else. Once that club closed down, the group moved on to play cards at Club Walen.
With the passion of playing Bid Whist, they all discussed forming their very own card club. In April of 2005, the club was officially formed. The group presently plays cards at the Elks Lodge in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The club was named Whistologists.

The Fort Lauderdale Whistologist Bid Whist Club promotes competitive whist playing and provide opportunity for bid whist players to come together on a consitent basis in an organized, comfortable and structured environment to play and compete for prizes and bragging rights as well as having fun.


Purpose and Vision
The purposes for which the corporation is organized are to promote the play of bid whist on both social and tournament levels and to help others who wish to learn the art of bid whist, and further to contribute to the general welfare of the community as deemed by the corporation.

The purposes of the corporation are to be achieved by personal subscription from community leaders, government agencies and general supporter, by promotion of activities and social events to raise funds for carrying out the objectives of the corporation.
