Club Championship Game - Alan McIlwain

In November, we will be holding a Club Championship, which awards double points.  The games will be held on Monday, Nov 6 and Sunday, Nov 12.  If you play and score masterpoints at these games, you will receive twice the value that ACBL normally would award for this sized game.  We hope to see you there.

Welcome to Solivita Bridge Club
Team Games

Our Friday night team game was very successful with yummy food and 6 tables of team bridge.  We will be having another team game offering on Friday, October 27th.  This will not have dinner, but you can bring your own beverages.  We will plan to serve dessert after the final round (it helps keep the cards from getting so sticky).  I would like to have 3 or 4 people bring a dessert or fruit for after the game. If you wish to bring something please check with me. I would also like to have one volunteer bring small plates, plastic cutlery and napkins.We will run this game with ACBL points and there will be a charge of $2 for residents and $3 for non-residents.  

You can make up your own team ahead of time, or if you have a partner and want to play, I will try to make up a team for you.

Please plan to arrive before 6:15 PM. Make your reservations to play with Donna by e-mail at dmc3726@yahoo.com. Beginners are welcome, but you should feel comfortable enough in your game that you can play in a timely manner. It will be a friendly game and we will uphold the ACBL policy of “zero tolerance” for rude or unfriendly behavior...this one will be for master points, but should still be fun.

We will be offering bridge in the Solivita Senior Olympics again this year and would like to have a team game included. This will give you a little more experience with the idea of a team game.

Newplicate in the Aegean Room - 2nd and 4th Sundays

The Newplicate will game not be held the second Sunday in October because we will be away.  There will be a game on Sunday, October 22nd in the Aegean Room.  There will be a short lesson at 1 PM on some of the hands played in the last game, play will begin at 1:30.  Reservations must be made beforehand so I can assure full tables of play.

Newplicate is a beginners bridge game for duplicate players with less than 5 masterpoints. It is run by a bridge teacher, rather than a director, and is designed for people who play bridge, but are just getting into duplicate.  In fact most of the people playing have taken one or more of the club-run classes. The idea is to get newer players familiar with the modern duplicate game in a relaxed, non-threatening environment.  Players can ask for advice from the teacher, and if mistakes are made at the table, they are fixed at the teacher's discretion - not necessarily according to strict tournament rules. This game is run as a section of the Sunday game, and is sanctioned by ACBL as a 'Brigeplus' game. Some ACBL masterpoints will be earned by the winners.  Cost to play is $2 for Residents and $3 for Non-Residents.

Results are posted to this website, and players can see their results, look at the hands, and see what the more experienced players in the main club did with them. Over time, players should learn to play faster and with more confidence, and can graduate to playing in the Sunday or Monday club games.

This game is open to qualifying players , but you must register with Donna so she can ensure that we will have full tables. Contact Donna for more information or to reserve a seat at the games.   (Donna McIlwain, 216-640-9885, dmc3726@yahoo.com)
