Full Schedule of Games

We are pleased to announce that starting in February we will offer flighted open pair games every morning Monday through Friday plus on Saturday afternoon and on Monday and Wednesday evenings.  In addition we will have the following limited games: 0 - 1500 (flighted) on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, 0 - 300 (flighted) on Friday mornings and 0 - 99 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.  Come enjoy the fun and challenge of duplicate bridge at the appropriate level for you.

Extra Masterpoints During August

During August, 34 of our 35 games will pay extra masterpoints at no additional charge.  Featured this month will be eight STaC games paying silver points, sixteen NAOP Qualifiers (extra points, half red), six charity games and four club championships.  Check our calendar for dates of these special events.    

Keep in mind that our Monday morning, Tuesday 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.  Card fees are ten dollars per person ($9.50 with an account) for most pair games; newcomer games are less.  Lunch is served during all of our morning games.  Enjoy duplicate bridge in our state-of-the-art club and earn the maximum number of masterpoints allowable.   

 

Limited Masterpoint Games

We limit our Monday morning and Wednesday evening games to players with fewer than 100 masterpoints.  Both of these games are preceded by a free lesson by Chuck Goudey, for those interested.  Card fees for these games are only seven dollars. 

We also have a 299'er game on Friday mornings.  This game is flighted and is also preceded by a free lesson by Chuck Goudey.

We run 0-1500 games on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:30 AM for slightly more experienced players.  The Thursday games are preceded by free lessons by Blair Young. 

These games are a great way for newer players to ease into duplicate bridge. 

 

Duplicate Bridge in a Friendly Atmosphere at DHOC

The club is owned and operated by Steve Wainz and Paul Ossip.  We pledge to do our best to continue the tradition of a friendly atmosphere for enjoyable duplicate bridge.  In addition, we will run all games with a non-playing director except when necessary to fill out the movement or in case of emergency (such as someone having to leave in the middle of a game).

In our new location, we will serve a light lunch during our morning games.  Card fees will be ten dollars per game ($9.50 if you have an account with us) for most games. 

We have open games Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings, Saturday afternoons and Monday and Wednesday evenings plus limited games on Tuesday (0-1500 MP)  and Thursday (0-1500 MP)  mornings.  We also have 99'er games on Monday mornings and Wednesday evenings and a 299'er game on Friday mornings.  All morning games start at 10:30 AM and evening games at 6:30 PM; Saturday afternoon games start at 12:30 PM.  Please feel free to offer your comments and suggestions.

Beginning and Intermediate Bridge Lessons

 

Paul Ossip will begin a five-week course on beginning bridge around mid-September.  The classes will be given on five consecutive Tuesday evenings, and the cost will be fifty dollars per person for the series.  The course is designed for people who have never played bridge or who have not played for many years.  Emphasis is on modern bidding methods and basic techniques for play and defense.
