From the Webmaster ... Please Read

There are several menu buttons at the left that are getting very little use. Please read the information below to get a better understanding of these menu items. 

  The 5th menu button at the left is Leland Player Profiles. Many of our regular players have provided some biographical information about their bridge journey, where they lived, what they did for a living, etc. It would be wonderful if all our regular players provided such information about themselves. If you will allow us to add your profile, please send your background information to our webmaster at par@ken-parker.com

  The next menu button is Player Photos Only - No Bio. This button provides a means of getting to know all your fellow players. If you have not yet submitted a player profile, then your picture probably appears here. 

 The next button is our Private Player Directory. This directory provides player names, their street address, their email address, and their preferred phone number. This section requires a Name and Password to access. If you send an email to par@ken-parker.com, I will email you back with the name and password. Also, if you are aggreeable to appearing in the private player directory, please include your address and preferred phone number in your email.

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.

   1/8/22  The Ace of Clubs & Mini-McKenney 2021 races are over.  The Leland Club is very proud of our many winners and they are shown in the center boxes.  Be sure to offer your congratulations to our winners when you see them.

  TUESDAY & THURSDAY GAMES NOW RUNNING EVERY WEEK!!  All games start at 12:45. Please arrive NLT 12:30.

  Information about the new Thursday Game:  We had a nice 5 table game for our first game. Since it is financially risky for the Club to run this game it will be offered only if players support the game. We need an average of 5 tables to keep this game viable.

The venue owners have been very gracious and have agreed to refund the Thursday rental fee if we cancel the rental by 6PM Weds. They will give us that grace period for a few weeks only.  Therefore it is extremely important to know by mid-afternoon Weds at the very latest  if you will be playing in the Thursday game so we have time to cancel if not enough tables.  Please respond to the weekly email quickly when you get it.  

  Club News:  

  • The Leland Bridge Club is now offering 2022 Annual Memberships for $20. You need not be a member to play in our club. Members receive a $1 discount at every game they play. Member game fee is $8 and non-member fee is $9. 
  • All first time players are required to show proof of vaccination.
  • We are requesting people who want to play and/or need a partner to RSVP to info@lelandbridge.com before the game.  RSVPing early guarantees you a seat.

  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 by 12:30.  Click the "About Us" button in the left menu column for more details about our location, fees, etc.  Click on the F2F Calendar button to view January's schedule.

  Wilmington Games:  F2F games once held at the Wilmington Bridge Center are no longer running.  You can still play in their virtual games which are held at about the same times as the F2F games were held.  The Unit has located a new venue.  I will notify everyone with the details when I receive more information from the Unit Board.

  Our Virtual Game Partner, SE Carolina offers a 500 game and an Open game every morning and afternoon. SE Carolina contributes part of the game fees (from those players who have played in the Unit games) back to Unit 118.  All Wilmington Unit Members are invited to play in SE Carolina's Online Games!!

  • To play in a SE Game, Logon to BBO, click on Virtual games, then click on ACBL - North America and our games will pop up.  We run 500 & Open games twice daily.
  • If you wish to play in a SE virtual game but have no partner,  just add your name to the Partnership Desk (PD). Anyone that signs up at the PD can play if they want.  Sepop is an avatar that is added to the PD just before game time. If no one is available, then invite Sepop to be your partner.  Once the game starts, Sepop magically turns into a robot and you can choose to play with the robot or request a live person!

Game Fees & Membership

 Many 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 when we run 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.

 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.
