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.

November Information

 

November Newsletter

 

Birthdays:  4 Lynn Berg, Jeannie Braswell; 8 David Merritt; 17 Gail Atherton; 18 Fran Strawn; 19 Eddie Carpenter; 20 Marlene Hilditch; 23 Jim Farrell; 24 Bud Randall.

 We start November with a Mentor Game on the 1st at 9 a.m.  If you aren’t yet involved in the mentor program here at the DeLand Bridge Club, give it a try—learning and teaching abound! Mentors play free for this monthly session.

 The Nominating Committee is hard at work.  The initial slate will be announced on 11/12, with nominations called for from the floor all that week.  If you haven’t served, please consider it if you’re asked.  This is a member-owned club which depends on your participation.

There are two special weeks coming up.

1-   A charity week to benefit the local shelter for abused women and children, 11/12-11/17 (lunch on the 17th).

2-  A week of silver point games, 11/26-12/1(lunch on the 1st).

 Chat Bridge continues every Tuesday from 9:30-11:30, an opportunity to play and ask questions in a casual environment.

 We end the month with two silver point team games:  a draw team on the 29th and an Open team on the 30th.

 Did you know?  Tapping on the green cards already on the table to pass is not legal.  While it’s condoned when yours is the third pass and ends the auction it’s never correct earlier in the bidding.  Don’t be lazy!  It can be hard to keep up with the rounds of bidding if everyone hasn’t contributed a card at each turn.

 

 

Chat Bridge

    Every Tuesday morning from 9:30-11:30.  Cone alone or with a partner.  Play and discuss hands in a friendly, non-competitive session.  Ask for help during bidding or play.

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.
