Fall Update:

AltaVista DBC Return to Face-to-Face Bridge
With the arrival of the fall season and summer travel behind us, we are once again offering Face-To-Face bridge. Beginning September 13, AltaVista will attempt to host F2F games on Tuesdays at 7:00 at Pineview as long as there is sufficient interest. The club feels that it is not fair to ask people to come out to a game unless there are enough players to support a reasonable duplicate movement so a minimum of 4 tables is required. 
Preregistration is required by email:  Registration will be available at the end of the current game and will close game day at 200pm at which time we will let everyone who registered know if there is sufficient interest to host a F2F game. 
Table Fees are $7.00 a person. Exact change would be appreciated.

Refreshments: Initially there will be water and coffee availible but no cookies or snacks so please plan accordingly.
MasksAltaVista will not require players to wear a mask but we ask that everyone bring one and out of respect for others please put one on, if someone at your table makes the request. 

BBO: Along with the F2F offering, our regular online BBO game will continue and we encourage all to continue to support us either at the table or online. The online game and the F2F game will be 2 distinct and separate events with MPs awarded accordingly.

We would like thank everyone for their support and we hope to see you in person at the table soon.

Club information

Our History

The Alta Vista Duplicate Bridge Club was founded by Robert McGillivray in 1966. Robert's military career dictated a move away from Ottawa and in 1967 Allan Chapman took over. Al remained the director, with Ken Brown as club manager, until 1997. During Al's tenure, the Club developed a reputation for friendliness and encouragement to new bridge players. In 1997, with Al Chapman moving to Perth, Garry Cooligan, a member of the Club since 1966, became its new director.

The club holds a regular Tuesday night game for players of all skill levels Face to Face at Pineview Golf Course with Mark Lacroix directing and online on BBO with Al McLellan directing, Teresa Fortin managing finances, and Del Holmes as club manager.
