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

August Information

Reopening Wednesday September 13 at noon.  Welcome Back!

 

 September Newsletter

We’ll be open as usual on Labor Day.

Starting September 6, we’ll have Open and 299er sessions on Wednesdays at 1 p.m.  The Open game gets credit for the tables in the limited game, but the two games are otherwise quite separate.

 We’ll have Quarterly Club Championships on the 5th, the 13th, 14th and 29th

September 18-23 is ACBL Membership Week in our Club.  Extra points for no extra charge, but non-ACBL members will be ineligible for masterpoints. We also have ACBL Instant Membership forms here at the desk for anyone who would like to join.

We finish the month with team games on the 29th (Open) and the 30th (Eight is Enough).  For Eight is Enough, C is NLM to 750; B, LM to 2500.  Please sign up so we can plan refreshments for this game.

Work on the Ladies Room is complete now.  Kudos to Nancy Zook, Ken and Cathy Cappy and Lynn Berg for the results. 

Our club education programs are alive and well.  We have Chat Bridge every Tuesday morning at 9:30.  The lesson games on Wednesday mornings and Sharon Lessard’s Defense in the 21st Century continue on Thursdays.  Check the bulletin board for topics.

Lynn Berg will present a Workshop on Negative Doubles on Thursday, September 21, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.  Charge is $20. There’s more to this useful convention than you may realize!

Our yearly Mentoring program starts in October, so now is the time to set up a mentor partnership.  If you need a mentor or are willing to mentor, let Lynn know. As in previous years, there will be a special Mentor Game on the second Thursday of the month.

September Birthdays:  2-Andrea Woodham; 16-Diana Bitler, Marianne Hansen, Ken Cappy; 19-Susan Williams, Joan Padgett; 22-Virginia Winters; 26-Ann Murray; 28-Larry Padgett.

The parking lot is about to fill up as sunbirds come home—please make sure the exit lane and the grass parking areas are accessible for late arrivals.

 

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.
