Bridge Games - When and Where

The Vail Valley Bridge Club, operated by Marcia and Tom McCalden, is dedicated to providing high quality friendly ACBL sanctioned games.   Hands are pre-dealt using our Dealer 4 card machine.  Hand records with analysis of makeable contracts are available at the end of each session.  Results are immediately available to players using our Bridgemate2 scoring system. Results are  available for post game analysis on this web site.

Summer Schedule: Mondays and Fridays at 1pm at Vail Christian High School. 

Reservations are REQUIRED for Mondays in July and August. Send your email address to marciamccalden@yahoo.com and you will receive a signup "Jotform" invitation a week before each Monday game.

All Vail Valley Bridge Club games participate in the nationwide Common game.   Over 90 bridge clubs play identical hands and compare results. The Common Game web page - link below -  provides expert analysis on many of the hands played each day.
