To The Denver Bridge Community:

For the past five years, Denver House of Cards has provided a spacious, well-lit, well-maintained facility for duplicate bridge games.  I am sorry to tell you that will end sometime between now and the end of 2017.  My landlord has informed me that he will not renew my lease.

With the Colorado economy booming as it is, available commercial lease space is nearly non-existent, and what is available is priced at a ridiculously high level.  In addition, I have the specific problem of needing parking for at least eighty cars.  As a result, I have been so far unable to find a replacement location where I could continue to run games.  Thanks to many loyal patrons, I have a business that generates considerable revenue, but I have no place to operate it after the next few months.

If any of you have any suggestions of a place that has sufficient space with adequate parking that would be willing to rent to me at an affordable price, I will appreciate your telling me about it.  Ideally, I would like the space to be mine full-time, but if you know of a facility such as a church, a country club or a retirement community that has unused space during the week, that might work.  If I am unable to find an alternative location, Denver House of Cards will close.

Please know that those of you who have deposited money in an account with Denver House of Cards need not worry about losing these funds.  The money is held in a separate account, and every penny will be returned to its owner if the club folds. 

You are all invited to enjoy our current facility and our buffet lunches while we remain open.  I hope to see many of you here during this period.

Paul

Bargain Bridge is Back

Monday morning open pair games are now only seven dollars per person including our lunch buffet.  Come enjoy our games and our food at bargain rates.

 

Extra Masterpoints During August

During August, we will have ten games that will pay extra masterpoints at no extra charge.  We will have eight NAOP Qualifying pair games (which pay half red points) and two regular club championships.  Check our calendar for dates and come enjoy our games and earn extra masterpoints.

Keep in mind that our Monday morning, Tuesday morning, Wednesday morning, Wednesday evening, Thursday morning and Friday morning open pair games use the table count from the concurrent I/N games to add additional masterpoints.  For example, our Tuesday morning open pair game nearly always pays a minimum of two masterpoints to the winners.  Enjoy duplicate bridge in our state-of-the-art club and earn masterpoints.  

Card fees are twelve dollars per person ($11 with an account) for all of our morning games which include our excellent lunches, except for the Monday morning 149er and the Friday 299er games.  The Monday morning 149er, the Monday and Wednesday evening open games, the Wednesday morning non-life master pairs, Friday morning 299'er and the Saturday afternoon games are $10 ($9.50 with an account).  The Wednesday evening 99er game is only $7. 

 

Full Schedule of Games

We offer flighted open pair games every morning Monday through Friday plus on Saturday afternoon and on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  In addition we have the following limited games: 0 - 1500 (flighted) on Tuesday mornings, 0 -1000 (flighted) on Thursday mornings, 0 - 300 (flighted) on Wednesday and Friday mornings and 0 - 149 on Monday mornings and Wednesday evenings.  The open games will award masterpoints based on total table count when held at the same time as a limited game.   

The limited Monday morning, Thursday morning, Wednesday evening and Friday morning games are all preceded by free lessons.

Come enjoy the fun and challenge of duplicate bridge at the appropriate level for you.

Beginning and Intermediate Bridge Lessons

 

Paul Ossip will be teaching beginning bridge starting on August 22.  This five-week course is designed for people who have never played or who have not played for a number of years.  Classes will be held at Denver House of Cards on five consecutive Tuesday evenings from 6:30 to 8:30 PM.  The cost is fifty dollars per person for the series.  For further information, e-mail us at denverhouseofcards@gmail.com or at paulossip@hotmail.com or call us at 303-781-6552.
