Our Club

A Short History of the DeLand Bridge Club

Groups formed in DeLand and DeBary in the late 1950’s, joining ACBL in ’58 and playing in a lot of venues, some quite imaginative: restaurants, a fire hall, the Elks Club, the Woman’s Club, the Putnam Hotel. In 1962, Pete Besom and Norman Mortimer began looking for property and found the Deerfoot Road site. Permission had to be given by neighbors to have a club in the area, and a small building on the site, a former BOQ hut from the local Navy base, was sold and moved.

The building was designed by Norman Mortimer and built by John Witt, funded by shares in a first mortgage paying the then Pass-Book rate of 5%. The minimum investment was $300, and no one was permitted to put in more than $3000, the theory being that no one should have too great a say in what was done. 32 individuals and families participated. Mike Accardi, Leonard Munson and Norman Mortimer guaranteed the investments for a few who were worried that the Club would not succeed.

Member “sweat equity” got the building ready for opening in October, 1964. Many of the appliances were donated. Members installed them, as well as the kitchen cabinets. Curtain poles with card symbol finials were placed at each window with yards and yards of simple drapes made by a member. There was no carpet, just a bare concrete floor. Members brought carpet samples to put under cold feet, and a yard and plant sale was held on opening day to start a carpet fund.

The 30 year mortgage was paid off in 12 years. The two clubs had consolidated by then, and the Club, a non-profit corporation, is still going strong.

April Information

 April Newsletter

Wednesday afternoon April 18 we’ll hold a Pro-Am.  Players with LM or with more than 300 points, please sign up to draw for a 0-300 partner on that day. It’s a great chance for the less experienced players to “swim with the sharks.”

The week of April 16-21, we’ll have a food/cash drive to support the Neighborhood Center, culminating on the Saturday with a covered dish lunch at 12:15.

The 199ers will have a Swiss Team on the 30th.

Lynn Berg will be teaching a seven week series on NT for intermediate to advanced players on Thursday mornings starting April 12 if at least eight players sign up.  Cost of the course is $10/session or $60 for the seven sessions.  There is an accompanying text available for $20.  Sign up at the club or tell Lynn by April 10.

Birthdays: 1-Karen Starling-Myers; 7-Ann Shepherd, Rosemary Plane; 8-Bev Hopson; 11-Marylin Wittmer; 14-Karen Ray; 18-Dan Croom.

Florida's Friendliest Bridge Club

Our building is designed for bridge, and is dedicated to the game with sessions every afternoon except for Sundays.  We offer refreshments and social breaks in every game. We recently installed a new Handicap Accessible Bathroom, and invite all to check out our remodel.

Board meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of the month and members wishing to make comments/suggestions to the board may do so at the beginning of the meeting.  

Need a partner for a club game? Please call the club the day before if possible at 386-734-7170.

Join us for a great game of bridge in a friendly atmosphere.
