Welcome to Colonial Duplicate Bridge Club
Guidelines on Arrival Time

The games start at noon.  Management has asked we do not arrive until 11:30, since others may be using the space before us.  They also need time to set up.  Thank you for your consideration so we can continue to use this space.  If we do not follow the Ford's Colony guidelines, we may be asked to leave.  Also, please wait patiently at the gate.  They must stop each car as it comes in.  This is a privilege, so we must follow the rules.  Thanks! 

Introduction

    Greetings to one and all from Williamsburg, the restored 18th century Colonial Capital of Virginia and training ground for many of our greatest founding fathers including George Washington, Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, George Mason and so many others. One nation, under God, then, now and forever.
    History is perhaps our greatest forte, but we also play lots of bridge here and boast many formidable players. The Colonial Duplicate Bridge Club meets every Friday at 12 Noon at the Swim & Tennis Club in Ford's Colony. This club is centrally located at 165 St. Andrews Drive in a lovely gated community in James City County, near Williamsburg. 16 to 25 tables of competitors regularly attend to play a variety of popular club games using the Bridgemate automated scoring machines. Complimentary coffee and snacks are available.     
   Our club owner and director is Cathy Hildebrand, childebrand1@earthlink.net, 757-345-3793.  Cathy is a certified ACBL instructor and Silver Life Master.
    If you find yourselves in our famous town, you and your partner are cordially invited to join us in this open, ACBL sanctioned game.
