Brevard Duplicate General Information

Brevard Duplicate is a small, friendly club formed in March 2015.  Our club is located in Brevard, North Carolina--home of the white squirrel. Yes, you can sometimes see white squirrels in the parking lot.  Generally we host 6 to 8 tables and 10 to 12 in the summer months.  Brevard Duplicate holds its sessions in the French Broad Community Center at 281 E. French Broad Street.  This center belongs to the City of Brevard.  Parking at the Center is limited, so come early for the best spots.  There are coffee and snacks at the games.  Although small, the club welcomes all newcomers.

Register for the Play of the Hand Class

 

We are excited to resume bridge classes at the French Broad Community Center with Play of the Hand, which will start Tuesday, June 8th at 9:30 AM.  

This class is designed for novice through intermediate players.  You will learn how to make a plan to achieve your contract along with many techniques for doing so.  These include:

  • High card promotion
  • Finesses
  • Eliminating losers
  • Transportation between declarer's hand and dummy
  • Managing the opponents.


Preregistration is required, and you can register HERE.

We will be using the Play of the Hand textbook, which  can be purchased at Amazon or Baron Barclay.  The textbook is required.

Face to Face Bridge is Returning!
We will resume casual bridge on Tuesday, May 18th, at 1:00 pm.  Donation request for Tuesdays will be $3.00.
 
Duplicate Bridge will resume on Friday, June 4th at 1:00 pm.  We plan on having an open group and a 99er group as we did on previous Fridays BC (Before Covid).  We will be using boards, bidding boxes and Bridge Mates.    The donation request for Fridays will be $5.
You will be required to sign a statement saying that you have been vaccinated when you enter the building.  I will be standing at the door to collect these.
 
We will not be serving coffee or any other beverages.  We will also not be serving food.  If you want coffee and snacks, you will need to bring your own.  Please do not bring food for the whole group.  We are not ready for this yet.
 
We will continue to have online bridge on Thursday and Saturday, but the online game on Friday will cease on June 4th.  We do not have enough players to hold an online game and a duplicate game simultaneously.
 
I am really excited about seeing everyone face to face!

More Opportunities to Play Online Bridge!

The Brevard Duplicate Bridge Club has joined the Southeast Carolina Bridge Consortium

What does this mean for you?

More online games, seven days a week! 

The Southeast Carolina Consortium includes several clubs from North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia.

There are games offered by the consortium as well as the individual clubs.

If you go to their website, you will see two schedules - one for the consortium games, and another for the individual club games.  All of these games are available for you to play in.

It is important to remember though, that you should play in a Brevard game if one is offered at the time you want to play.  That supports our club and keeps it vibrant and healthy so that we all have a game to return to when in-person bridge resumes.

Contact Pam Harpootlian with any questions.
