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 26 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.

  7/23/20  Announcement:   ACBL is holding another Silver Linings Week beginning on Monday, July 27th.  We have increased the number of games in our schedule to give our players additional opportunities to earn those elusive Silver Points.  All points earned at any game during Silver Week will be DOUBLE SILVER Points!!  ACBL has increased its fees for these games and the cost will be $7.  Members are strongly encouraged to use the "I Need a Partner" form below if you need a partner when you want to play.  The Partner Request goes to everyone in the Consortium and you can expect to receive multiple replies to your request.  You can pick and choose among the responders and set up your schedule.

In response to numerous requests, our 99er, 299er and 599er games now are Limit AVG games.  Now a pair can still play together even though one of them had a rank change that exceeded the limit as long as their average is less than the limit.  Please click on the SE Virtual Games Schedule in the box below for exact times/dates.

  7/4/20  The SE Consortium has teamed with the Charleston Virtual Club!!!  Leland players can now play in any Charleston games and vice-versa.  We have eliminated competing games and now offer more limited games to appeal to the wide range of players that participate in our games.  This means bigger games with more points!!  Now when you login to BBO both SE and Charleston's games will be visible within 2 hours of game time and you are now permitted to play in either club. 

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 periodic 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 SE 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 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.
