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!!
♠ 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.
