D 17 Scorecard
D17 Scorecard is now a digital only publication. Until now it arrived in your mail as a newspaper. In a lot of ways it is now much easier to read. You can skip to any article that interests you. It is completely portable, so you can read it on your computer, tablet, or cell phone.
District 17 now has both an Apple and Android "app" for ScoreCard. Load this free application and get instant access to the current edition of ScoreCard, the D17 bi-monthly magazine.
Answers to many of your questions about duplicate bridge, the types of games we hold, scoring, the difference between MPs and IMPs, and much more.
The Bridge Center closes with D11 School District.
