FLATHEAD VALLEY BRIDGE CENTER
MISSION STATEMENT

The purpose of this organization is to provide a community facility to improve and enhance the quality of life of residents in the Flathead Valley of Montana.   To provide enriched social opportunities, including recreational and cultural activities.  To promote and support the game of duplicate bridge, with an emphasis on teaching programs, workshops and individual instruction, as well as offering our facility for use to other nonprofit organizations serving the needs of our community.

Our club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, all donations are tax deductible.

Adopted this 13th day of January, 2020.

What Our Website Offers

To see game results, click on the menu "Results" button and select a particular game to display that game's results.  Once you have seen the ranking display, click on your pair's listing (or any pair's listing) to see a display of your final bids and scores for each hand you played.  Clicking on any particular board number on the number table above the hand display will show all four hands of the board chosen together with the final bids and scores of each pair and the opening lead for all pairs that played that particular hand. 

FVBC's communications to players are found on the Home page, the News page, the Club Information page, and the Member Only page.  Note that you must be a member of our club to access the Members Only information.

The Find a Partner page offers a means for club members to request a partner for any given club game.  The Calendar page provides some general information on future club games.  The Useful Links page offers some other websites that may be of interest to bridge players.  At this point we have not implemented any competitions on the Competitions page but may do so in the future.
