  ♣ 

The annual Membership Meeting of the Jefferson Bridge Association will be held on Wednesday, December 13 at the Cavalier Inn at 11:30 am. At that time, we will be electing members of the Board to replace the four members whose terms have expired.

We thank these Board Members who have served for the last six years (two terms of 3 years each. Special appreciation goes to Margot Carney, who has served as the Secretary of the Board, and to Andi Wilkinson, who has served on the Finance Committee and has given valuable guidance in financial decisions, and has insured that our ByLaws were maintained and practiced.   We also appreciate the service of Joe Daniel (my champion!)  and Annie Izard whose business and legal guidance has been so important to the work of the Board.

The following candidates have indicated their willingness to serve if elected. You will be given a ballot on Wednesday and asked to select four of these candidates.   A ballot is being sent to those who would like to vote but will NOT be at the Wednesday game. If you know you will not be there on Wednesday and want to participate as an absentee, please send me a request for a ballot.

Your Candidates - in alphabetical order:

Ray Brumbelow

Virginia Cenedella

Ralph Clifton

Cathryn Collins

Maggie Eckman

Elliot Mininberg

John Pritchard

Please give this group careful consideration and be prepared to make your choices on Wednesday. All JBA players who have participated in eight (8) games are considered members are eligible to vote.

A pizza lunch will follow the election. Awards will be made in January, so that a full year of results can be included in the calculation.

NewLaws:

The changes have been serialized in the Ruling the Game section of the Bridge Bulletin from July through November. Two of the ones that are easy to explain are:

  1. As of Jan 1, 2018 the stop card will no longer be in the bidding box at tournaments. ACBL has suggested we eliminate them at the club level as well. The opponent to the left of the bidder who makes a skip bid is still required to wait before he makes his bid.
  2. If no dealing machine is used, in dealing the cards manually, no two consecutive cards from the deck can be placed in the same hand. So deal them out one at a time in four consecutive piles as though you were dealing at the party bridge table. Since dealing five piles and combining the first and last piles puts the 5th card in the same hand as the 6th card, this also cannot be done.

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 five 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.
