CONTESTS - BEGINNING MONDAY (December 13th) - we will have ONE contest that awards Free Plays - focused on the 3:45 game.

One freeplay will be given to the top 4 places for the Tuesday - Thursday 499er and Open games each week

We will still have an all-inclusive Masterpoint race each week for 99, 199, 299, 499, 749, and Open players but the only Free plays awarded are specific to the 3:45 games.



SOUTHEAST Bridge Club Consortium - BBO AND SEBCC

The SOUTHEAST BRIDGE CLUB CONSORTIUM (SEBCC) is a great group of clubs that have come together offering a wide range of: 

  • Game Days (Every Day of the Week)
  • Game Times (9:30, 1:05 and 7:05)
  • Games for different player levels (99er, 199er, 299er, 499er, 749er, and Open)
  • Tremendous opportunities for player development (see below) from nationally ranked teachers (Kevin Wilson and Jim Ricker)

The SEBCC Mission is to keep bridge players of all levels engaged and excited about bridge.  When we get back to Face to Face bridge, we want the players EAGER to show off their new skills and knowledge to their friends at your clubs.
