John Nelson
1943-2021
Rest In Peace


The Leland Duplicate Bridge Club is saddened to learn of the passing of one of our regular players, John Nelson. We will definitely miss him. What follows is from John's obituary and, because of his dry sense of humor, it sounds as if John wrote it himself. ..........

Welcome To Our Friendly Club

For the forseeable future, the club will not be scheduling any face-to-face games. However, the Leland Bridge Club is part of a 35 club consortium providing multiple games every day of the week. See details in the news boxes to the right. 

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.

The entire Leland Bridge Club Community extends our deepest condolences to the family of John Nelson, who recently passed away.  And of course, to his brother Jim, and Jim's family.  They were very close,  and were very familiar faces at our bridge games.  We will miss John very much.  John's obituary can be seen in the center box.

♠   2/26/21  REMINDER --  LELAND'S FIRST MORNING GAME IS THIS MONDAY, MARCH 1ST!!!  Our first game will be held at 9:50.  The game will always be stacked with the Limited Games, and we expect to see points awarded at the same levels as at our Tuesday game.  If you have been playing on Monday mornings, please support our Club and play in the LELAND Game instead. Points awarded will be considerably higher than playing in either of the Monday morning limited games.  If you regular partner is not available, please complete the GREEN "Request Partner" Button below a day or two before the game.  Let's line up our partners and start off our Monday game with a good showing!!

OLDER INFORMATION

♠   RACE LEADERS & RANK RISERS:  Congratulations to our Leland Club Members who are leading numerous 2021 masterpoint Races in our Unit!! We also have 4 members who had rank changes in the past month. All of our Rank Leaders and Rank Risers are shown in the Center Boxes.  

   LELAND'S TUESDAY OPEN GAME:  Our Tuesday game is consistently in the 10-12 table range.  Because the game is triple-stacked with the Limited Games, winning pairs consistently earn more than 3 points per game!!  Thank you all for participating and I am looking forward to seeing you all at our next games.

   Novice games (<20 Masterpoints):  We are now running Novice games on Tu, Th, and Sun afternoons.  This game is strictly for our newest players and there is a free Zoom session after each game where you can ask questions about the hands you just played.  If you and your Partner have less than 20MPs, try our new Novice Game.

♣   Leland & SE Carolina Open Stacked Games: Masterpoint awards are much higher in all of our Open games due to our ability to double or triple stack each of our Open games!  We count the # of tables in Limited Games held in the same session and add that table count to the open game.  Example:  If we get a total of 20 tables in two limited games and 10 in the Open game, ACBL will consider our Open game to have 30 tables.  The two winning pairs in that Open Game will earn 4.5 Master points.   

In the News Box below, click on the links to view our Virtual Games Schedule or the various Game Results links. If you need a partner, then a day 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.  

The last link below discusses frequently encountered problems in BBO and how to handle them. It also has a tutorial for playing Online Bridge at BBO which is very helpful for new online players.

Game Fees & Membership

 Most of our games are Special Games and they 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.
