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.

We’ll celebrate Cinco de Mayo on the first Saturday with a margarita party at break time.  Enjoy a special treat.

Club Championships are scheduled for May 9 and 29th.

Florida District 9 of ACBL is already holding fundraisers for the next NABC in this state.  We’ll hold a week of fundraiser games with lots of extra black points May 21-26, ending up with a covered dish lunch at 12:15 on Saturday May 26. Charge all week will be $7 for members and $9 for non-members with no free plays accepted.

We end the month with team games:  an Open team on the 29th, a 299er team on the 30th and a Draw team on the 31st.  NLM partnerships with fewer than 750 points will draw to play with LM and players with more than 750. Get your own partner and come along for this fun event.

Chat Bridge continues every Tuesday from 9:30-11:30 a.m.

Coming in June:  a low-key 0-20 game on Wednesdays at 1 p.m.  Come even without a partner to play 12-15 hands with the opportunity to ask the occasional question during bidding or play.

Did You Know??  Law 41 A says opening leads must be face-down.  If you lead in error but face down, you get to put the card back in your hand with no penalty.  Once a card is led, even face-down, by the correct player, it may not be withdrawn unless there is new information revealed during the clarification period (the time between the last pass and a card called from the dummy).

Thanks to Ken Cappy and Chuck Molenda for installing the new Push/Pull plates on the restroom door.

Coming in June:  in addition to the new 0-20 game, it will be North American Pairs season through August.  Look for games with points half red/half black.

 

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.
