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.

    1/17/21   SILVER WEEK IS Here!!  ACBL is offering Silver Games Monday Jan 18th thru Sunday the 24th.  Every game the SE Consortium runs will be a Silver Game and all points earned will be Silver.  In addition  we are offering double Silver points this week.  To help you get those scarce Silver Points we are running a 199er, a 499er and a Double-Stacked Open Game every night this week! Please check our schedule at the SE Website and start lining up your partners.

ANNUAL RACE RESULTS:  Congratulations to our Leland Club Members who won 11 of the Races in our Unit!! A remarkable showing for our small club.  All of our winners and their mug shots are shown in the Center Box.  Also congratulations to Meggan Klippen, who is our newest Bronze Life Master.

SURVEY IS IN PROGRESS!!  Several players have asked for a second Leland Game to run in the morning.  Please respond to our survey when you get it.  If you did not get an email from Leland Bridge please let me know as you are not in our mailing list for some reason.  

Leland Open Game:  We have been averaging 10 tables since our game began in November! Because we are 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 first ever Double-Stacked Silver Game on Tuesday.

♣   Older Information

Novice games (<20 Masterpoints).  We are 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.  Complete the GREEN "Request Partner" Button below if necessary a day or two before the game. 

Info about Leland and SE Carolina's Open Stacked Games!!  Masterpoints awarded are much higher in our Open games due to our ability to double or triple stack every single Open game!  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 10 tables each 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. 

Click on the links below 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.
