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.

BOARD MEETINGS

The DeLand Bridge club Board meets on the third Tuesday each month.  We encourage members to attend board meetings and if they have an item either present in person or by letter to the President

February Information

 Open Players Sign Up by 2/20 to play on 2/21 in National Charity Game

February Newsletter

Players who have signed up at acbl.org/reach will be eligible for Regionally rated Red and Gold points as they play in our afternoon DeLand Bridge Club games February 5-9.  You must sign up by the 4th to participate.


We’ll participate in the Big Heart national charity game on Wednesday, February 21st.  There will be an Open section as well as the 0-299ers if enough Open players have signed up by the 20th.

We’ll have Club Championships on the 2nd (all day), the 17th, the  21st. the 26th and the 27th.  We’re allowed one CC per quarter for each game we hold—extra points at no extra charge!

There was insufficient interest in an Open game on Wednesday afternoons, so that experiment has ended.  We’re always looking for ways to expand what we offer at the club, so suggestions are welcome.  A few players have expressed interest in an early evening game.  Let Lynn know if you would be interested—probably Monday or Wednesday starting at 6 or 6:30…

Lynn will offer a free class on the Laws and Directing.  Two sessions:  February 12 on the Laws.  Let her know if you are interested. 

Chat Bridge continues on Tuesdays from 9:30 to 11:30.  If you have a foursome you would like to keep together, join us—you’ll  have a chance to ask questions if want to.  Chat Bridge is informal and non-competitive.  It’s casual and easy-going—and only $5.

February Birthdays:  3-Linda Rivest; 9-Jill Croom; 10-Greg Moniz; 15-Martha Easter; 18-Sanney Etchison, Nancy Zook; 19-Janet Krohn; 22-Alice Gallant; 23-Paul Moniz; 24-Pam Thompson; 27-Ann Magaha.

 

IF YOU HAVE FEWER THAN 300 POINTS PLEASE COME AND PLAY FRIDAY MORNINGS AT 9 AM.  

Looking for an Open Game to "move up?"  Try Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m.

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.
