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, provide a partner if requested by an email, and have a non-playing director. 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.

Click on the Ace of Clubs Race menu button at the left to see if your name is on the top 10 list for your rank. If you still see last month's date, you should refresh your browser page.

8/1/21  Our first game in August is a special Club Championship Game.  We try to run a special game each week that offers about 3X the points awarded at a regular game at no extra charge. 

Where? When? We play on Tuesdays in the Brunswick Forest Shopping Center at 1120 East Cutlar Drive.  Plenty of free parking with handicap spots very close to the venue.  Try to arrive by 12:30.  Please click the "About Us" button in the left menu column for more details about the location, fees, etc.  Click on the F2F Calendar button to view the August schedule.

Need RED Points to rise to the next Rank???  RED points are normally available only at Regionals. However, in August our Virtual Partner,  SE Carolina, will be offering 500 Point Limited Games and Stacked Open Games 3 times daily so that everyone has a chance to win those scarce RED Points.  Points will be awarded at twice the normal level, with 1/2 of them RED points.  Playing in these games really helps support our club as we get a small portion of the fee paid by Leland members whenever you play in a SE Carolina Virtual Game.

  EVERYONE CAN PLAY IN OUR SE CAROLINA VIRTUAL GAMES.  CLICK ON THE  LINK BELOW FOR THE WEEKLY GAME SCHEDULE. If you want to play in a SE Game but have no partner please complete the GREEN "Request Partner" button below a day or two before the game.  You should get several responses from others needing a partner.  And if you decide at the 11th hour that you wish to play in a virtual game but have no partner,  just add your name to the Partnership Desk.

  Now everyone is Guaranteed to Play:  Want to play in any SE game but have no Partner?  NO WORRIES  Anyone that signs up at the partnership desk can play if they want.  Sepop is a surrogate player that we add to the partnership desk before game time. If no one is available to be your partner, then before the game starts invite Sepop to be your partner.  Once the game starts, Sepop magically turns into a robot.  It is your choice -- play with a robot (or request a live person) or not play!

♣  In the News Box below, click on the links to view our Virtual Games Schedule or the Game Results. If you need a partner, then a day or two before the game, just click on the GREEN Partner Request button, complete the form, and your request will be sent to everyone on the club list.

Game Fees & Membership

 Almost all of our games are Special Games with three strata for A, B, and C players.  Masterpoints are issued at approximately 3X the amount awarded at regular games.  Our club does not charge extra for these special games. 

 You need not be a member to play in our club. However, the Leland Bridge Club offers players an opportunity to join our club by paying an annual membership of $20. Members receive a $1 discount from the entry fee at every game they play.

 Member entry fee is $8 and non-member is $9.  NOTE: Entry fees will be $8 through 12/31/2021. Memberships will be offered again in early 2022. 

♣ We ask members and guests to have the correct change and to please pay for yourself and your partner. This speeds up the check-in process and helps the game start on time.
