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.  

Welcome To Our Friendly Club
Congratulations to our October - November 2021 Rank Advancements

♠  11/27/21  REMINDER:  Tuesday's Nov 30th game will start at our usual time of 12:45. Please be sure to arrive NLT 12:30.

Rank Changes:  WOW!! A CLEAN SWEEP!!  This month Unit 118 had eight rank advancers and all of them were Leland Club Members!!  Congratulations to the new rank advancers! Also congratulations to the many members of our club who are leading the Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney races in our Unit. You can view their mug shots and status in the Center Boxes.

     Leland Club News:  

  • Players from the Wilmington Bridge Center who wish to play in F2F games are invited to play in Leland's Tuesday Game at Brunswick Forest.  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 will guarantee you a seat at a table as we may be required to limit the number of tables in play.

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 November schedule.

   Wilmington Games:  F2F games that were held at the Wilmington Bridge Center are no longer running as the Center is now closed.  However, you can still play in their virtual games which are held at about the same times as the F2F games were held.  Once the Unit locates a new venue I will notify everyone with the details of when and where the F2F games will resume.

♣   Our Virtual Game Partner, SE Carolina now 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, all you need to do is to log onto 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 want to play in a SE Game but have no 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.  You should get several responses from others needing a partner.
  • If you decide at the 11th hour that 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 else 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!

Ace of Clubs & Mini-McKenney Races for 2021

♠ The annual Ace of Clubs race recognizes the top 10 masterpoint earners in the Unit for each rank. Players are listed according to the rank they held at the start of the calendar year. Included are masterpoints earned in ACBL club games since the beginning of the year. This list is updated on the 7th of each month. We have a great share of the top players! 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 Mini-McKenney race is similar, but includes masterpoints earned at all ACBL club games and tournaments. This list is updated on the 7th of every month. Click on the Mini-McKenney Race menu button and see if your name is on the top 10 list for your rank. 

Ace of Clubs & Mini-McKenney Races for 2021
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.
