"DOUBLE DUMMY"

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE TORONO NABC DAILY BULLETIN ARTICLE

A bridge player doubles down on the game As he was in the final stages of post-production work on the 86-minute documentary film Double Dummy, John McAllister, the film’s creator, took time out to answer a few questions about himself and his project. The film follows the USA 1 Under-21 team at the 2012 World Youth Teams Championship in Taicang, China. A screening of the film is scheduled for 10:30 p.m. to midnight today in Room 201EF at the Convention Centre. Provide some biographical information about yourself. I am a bicentennial baby born in Philadelphia PA. My mother’s family is from Charlottesville VA, where I grew up and live currently. I went to college at the University of Virginia.

My favorite game was hearts up until my grandfather died in my freshman year of college. My aunt Kathleen stayed at our family’s house for the funeral and one evening we sat down to play hearts with Kathleen, and my parents as our third and fourth.

Welcome to the Jefferson Bridge Association, Charlottesville, Virginia

Enjoy real southern hospitality at Jefferson Bridge Association's (JBA) games where you'll find challenging bridge, gracious players and delicious refreshments.

JBA was organized in 2006 to add to the enjoyment of duplicate bridge in Charlottesville and the surrounding areas of Virginia. The member-owned, non-profit club is sanctioned by the American Contract Bridge League. JBA runs three games each week and sponsors an annual tournament. The club offers many special events to award additional masterpoints to the winners and benefit local charities. 

On the first Friday of each month, club masters offer a forum to discuss and teach bidding systems and playing techniques.

ACBL certified instructors offer private or group bridge classes beginning, intermediate and advanced players.

JBA was the first bridge club♠ in the US to use the highly successful Bridgemate Wireless Scoring System for instantaneous feedback and scoring.  All games feature pre-dealt hands and hand records.  Results of each game are posted on this website.
