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.

5/22/20  ♣   The ACBL is awarding Silver Points at 3 times the normal level for all games next week (May 25th thru May 31st).  They are doing this for two reasons.  First, to give our members the opportunity to earn Silver Points at a time when it is difficult to earn any, and second, to raise funds so they can hire back their admin staff, their directors, others who have been furloughed.  The entry fee for Silver Week is $7 per game. 

We are scheduling both 199er and Open Games twice each day during the week.  And for the first time we are scheduling limited (<= 599) Silver Point night games during Silver Week.  Again,  Silver points will be awarded at all games next week at 3X the normal level. I suggest you take advantage of this opportunity.   I do not know if, or when, the ACBL will offer this type of game again. 

 

5/7/20  ♠  We now schedule Open games every day of the week and have a 199er game each weekday (Mon thru Fri).  Please click on the schedule link below to view the latest schedule updates.

Please notice the links in the box below. Click on them to view the Virtual Games Schedule or the Virtual Game Results.  If you need a partner, just click on the green Partner Request Button and fill out the day(s) you want to play and your request will be sent to everyone on the merged clubs list.  

Al Smith sends out weekly emails from the new SE Carolina virtual bridge club to all members of the pooled clubs.  If you have not yet received an email from Al, you are NOT on the mailing list.  To get on the list, please click on the Add Me link in the box below, add your information, and we will add your name to the distribution list.

The last link below discusses frequently encountered problems in BBO and how to handle them.  Worth reading so you know what to do if you encounter one of them.

Game Fees & Membership

 Most of our games are Special Games and award masterpoints at about 3 times what regular club games award. Our club does not charge extra for these special games. More masterpoints are awarded and there is no extra fee added to the cost of a regular game. All of our games have three strata. 

 Member entry fee is $8 and non-member is $9. 

 You do not need 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.

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

 We have a great relationship with the Magnolia Greens Golf  Course and we believe our venue is the best place to play that we have seen. We would like to thank Blossoms Restaurant and Magnolia Greens Golf Course for allowing us to use their facilities. If you are thinking of holding an event, please consider the Banquet Room at the Magnolia Greens Golf Course.
