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.

June Newsletter

We start the month with the World-Wide Pairs on June 2 ($8, $10).  In addition to hand records, there will be a brief analysis of each hand.

Every Wednesday, in addition to the usual 0-299 game, we’ll also have a 0-20 relaxed 12 board game.  Both start at 1 p.m.  0-20 players can come with a partner or be paired up at game time.  The 0-20 session will last around two hours.

The Summer months are North American Pairs Season, and we’ll hold sessions on the 9th, the 19th and the 28th. Points are half red/half black.  Strats are C=NLM to 500, B=LM to 2500, A=2500+.

ACBL has made the Alzheimer’s Association a major charity beneficiary for some years now.  We’ll participate on the 23rd with a special game, starting with a covered dish lunch at 12:15.  Help support this very good cause.  Few of us can say we haven’t been affected by the troubles of Alzheimer’s.

We end the month with an Open Team Game on the 29th and an 8 is Enough Team on the 30th.  For the 8 is Enough, C=NLM to 750, B=LM to 2250, A=2250+.

Coming in July:  A new Basic Bridge with 2/1 class series starts on Wednesdays beginning July 11.  This series is great for newcomers and for Novice and Intermediate players who want a strong foundation in 21st century bidding techniques.  Lynn Berg will be the teacher.  At least eight must sign up for the class to proceed.  Cost is $10 for members of the DeLand Bridge Club and $12 for non-members.  The first three lessons will be free. Also coming in July:  Sharon Lessard will offer a Play of the Hand class on Thursdays from 6:30 to 8:30.

Did you know:    Rules have changed for Insufficient Bids and Bids out of Turn.  Make sure you call the Director!

0-20 Players

    Low-key 0-20 game  starts Wednesday June 6 at 1 pm.  Come with a partner or get partnered up at game time.  Must have three tables, so please come support this new 0-20 short game.  Play 12-15 hands.

 

 

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.
