    We have partnered with Brunswick Virtual Club!!  Many of our games will now award masterpoints at least triple the normal rate with no extra fees.  Small downside is that the game results may not appear in our results page.  If this happens, go to  See Results and look for the Leland game and the hands and results will be visible there.  

  Continuing Education!! We are concluding our  Beginners Class.  The Club will offer  special Half-Day Classes on NT Bidding and Doubles Bidding when requested.  Class details can be found at the Bridge Education Box in the Center Section of this page.

   Where? When? We play in Brunswick Forest -- Tuesdays at 1120 East Cutlar Crossing, and Thursdays at 2162 Shelmore Way.  Plenty of free parking with handicap spots close to the venue.  Please arrive NLT 12:30. Games start at 12:45.  Click the About Us button on the left side for more details about our location, fees, etc.  Click the Leland Face to Face Calendar button to view this month's schedule.

  Not getting enough bridge?  Our online Partner, SE Carolina, offers limited and Open games at 9:30 AM & 2 PM daily.  Afternoon Games are $3.98 and Morning Games are $4.50 for limited and 5.50 for Open game. Or play 12 Board Speedball Games with a robot daily at 8 AM, 12:00, 5:00 or 8, 9 or 10 PM.  These fun games run for about 50 minutes and cost only $3.50.  Click the Virtual Games Schedule to view exact times for these games.

  • If you wish to play but have no partner,  add your name to the Partnership Desk (PD).  Sepop is an avatar that appears in the PD just before game time. If no one is available, then invite Sepop to be your partner.  Once the game starts, Sepop magically becomes a very good live person!
