Sunday Swiss Games in 2018

The Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club holds Swiss Teams games from June - September on Sundays.  Games begin at 1:30 and we ask everyone to be there at 1:15 so we can start on time.  Look below for details and dates.  Each game is Eight is Enough as described below.   

1.  Each team may add up to NO MORE THAN 8 points for the total 4-person team.  Players under 300 masterpoints count as 1 point.  Players with 300-1000 masterpoints count as 2 points.  Players with over 1000 masterpoints count as 3 points.  A team may have LESS THAN 8 points or 8 points exactly, but not more than 8. This means that no team may have more than 2 A players and, if a team has 2 A players, they must be playing with 2 C players.

2.  We will play 4 rounds of 6 hands each, time permitting.  We must be finished in 4 hours or less, which should be no problem if everyone arrives on time and plays at a good pace.

3.  Cost is $3 to enter the Rec Center, which goes to the Center, and $4 for bridge club members (guests will pay $5). If you are a member of the Rec Center, then you only pay the $4 or $5 bridge fee. 

4.  Please make your reservations via the link below and put ALL THREE of your teammates in the TEAMMATES’ box.  When you find the date you want, click the box that says Sign Up.  Next, go to the bottom of the page and click Submit and Sign Up.  Finally, put all of your teammates in the box, use a quantity of 1 (for one team) and click Sign Up Now and you are done.

As always, walk-ins of full four person teams are welcome, but reservations will have priority.

5. If you need teammates to make a team of four, please use our partnership desk link on this page.

Welcome to Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club
About Us
About Us

Welcome to the Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club (CDBC) website. The CDBC is a member-owned club fully sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL). It is a friendly game where all players are welcomed. The club was started around 1990 as a seasonal game with the able leadership of Jean and Ed Whitby. Cashiers Duplicate Bridge Club is incorporated as a non-profit organization to promote bridge games for members and guests.  The Club is adminisered by an elected Board of Directors. 

We currently have an open game and a 299 game each Tuesday during the season at 1 PM (please arrive by 12:45) at the Cashiers Recreation Center. We can accommodate 24 tables, and we ask everyone to reserve a place by utilizing the sign-up sheet on this web page. You and your partner can reserve a slot up to two weeks in advance through the SignUp Genius.  

The club uses Bridgemate scoring terminals and we were able to purchase a dealing machine at the beginning of the 2014 season, so all games feature pre-dealt boards and hand records. Our goal is to have results posted on this website before our players return to their homes.

Cashiers is a lovely unincorporated municipality situated in the mountains of Southwestern North Carolina.  It is a destination vacation place for many who enjoy the simple life of Cashiers and the many activities it has to offer. It has cool summers, wonderful seasons, and superb places to eat. However, its main asset is the good people who come to Cashiers on vacation or that have homes here.
 

Game Stratification Levels

Our game generally uses the following stratification levels (But may be modified at the discretion of the Director)

  • C Players - 0 to 500 MPs
  • B Players - 500 to 1000 MPs
  • A Players -1000 and above
Suggestions Welcomed
