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

October Newsletter

 

October is Club Appreciation Month:  you’ll see special pair games and special team games scheduled in every session held weekly on our calendar.  While all the pair games offer extra black points, the team games also have a small percentage of gold (what Bud Randall called “gold dust!”).  No extra charge for these games.  They’re a thank you from ACBL for our participation as an ACBL club. See lists of Pairs and Team games for Limited and Open Games in the left hand column of this page.

 

In addition, we’ll have a food drive for the Neighborhood Center from October 16 to through the 23rd.   Bring non-perishable food as well as cleaning and hygiene supplies to the club to be delivered on the 24th.  Money is welcome, too. This is a great time to take advantage of BOGO offers at our local grocery stores.  Also, you’ll find reasonably priced cases of vegetables at Sav-a-Lot. In the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, they really need our help.  So many people lost all the food they had on hand.

 

Mentoring season starts in October.  0-300 players, ask a more experienced player to be your mentor. We’ll have a monthly session where mentors play free (second Thursday at 9:30 a.m.), this month on October 12.

 

The Club Appreciation Team game on Saturday, October 29th, will be preceded by a covered dish lunch.  It’s a draw team, so bring your partner and come along.  Monday the 31st will be a Grand National Team qualifier ($8, $10).  Open is 2500+, B is LM to 2500, and C is NLM to 500—a great opportunity for the C players.

 

Monday finishes with an Open Individual on the 30th.  Players with more than 200 points are invited to join the Monday group for a fun day with great refreshments. 

 

Please be considerate of others.  Minimize the use of cologne, scented powder and perfume or aftershave.  Park so that others will be able to get in. We’re about to have a lot of sunbirds back.

 

Birthdays: 6-Nancy Sharff; 9-Kathy Harn; 12-Janet Dyer, Marita Harriman; 13-Harriet Erwin; 17-Cavid Desmond, Cozy May; 23-Beth Britton; 24-Lynn Sorensen; 26-Barbara Dunn, Suzy O’Connor; 27- Karen Muns, Rob Shanker; 30-Pat Gregory, Lilo Miller; 31- Jerry Meronek.  If you want to send a card to Jerry, his contact information is available on our website.

 

Coming in November:  Daytona Regional November 6-12. We will be open as usual.

 

 

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.
