Welcome To Our Friendly Club

Welcome to the Leland Duplicate Bridge Club. We strive to make our games very friendly and newcomers to duplicate are always welcome. Our games start on time, use a clock, utilize Bridgemates, have a non-playing director, and provide a partner if requested by an email. Our club takes maximum advantage of the many special games permitted by the ACBL. We are a Zero Tolerance club. This website is generally updated with game results and hand records within an hour of each game. Our web address is www.lelandbridge.com.

   8/7/22   This week we offer North American Qualifying Pairs games  (1/2 RED & 1/2 Black Points).  NAPQs are the only games offered at the club level where one can earn RED points and are very important for those of you who need RED Points to reach the next level.     

Congratulations to our latest Rank Risers and to our members who are leading their bracket in the Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney races.  You can see their mug shots in the Center Boxes and be sure to congratulate them at the next game.  Please click on the two race buttons in the left column to see how close you are to leading your bracket.

Where? When? We play on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Brunswick Forest Shopping Center at 1120 East Cutlar Crossing.  Plenty of free parking with handicap spots close to the venue.  Please arrive NLT 12:30. Games start at 12:45.  Click the About Us button in the left menu column for more details about our location, fees, etc.  Click on the Leland Face to Face Calendar button to view this month's schedule.

  EXTRA EXTRA EXTRA Our online Partner, SE Carolina, is offering NAPQ games now thru Tues Aug 9 and again on Sat thru Mon (Aug 13-15) giving you more chances to earn those coveted RED Points.   Limited and Open NAPQ games run 3X daily, mid-morning (10 AM), afternoon (1:45 PM) and evening (6 PM).  Or play 12 Board Speedball Games with a robot every morning (8 AM), 12:30, late afternoon (4:30) or evening (8:15 PM).  These games run for about 50 minutes and cost only $3.  Click on the Virtual Games Schedule button below to get exact times for these games.  

  • To play in a SE Carolina Game, Logon to BBO, click on Virtual games, then click on ACBL - North America and our games will pop up. 
  • If you wish to play but have no partner,  add your name to the Partnership Desk (PD).  Sepop is an avatar that appears in the PD just before game time. If no one is available, then invite Sepop to be your partner.  Once the game starts, Sepop magically becomes a very good live person!
