Welcome to ACBL Unit 190 (Delaware)
In-Person Games to Resume

We're delighted to announce the impending return of in-person bridge in Delaware! 

The Bridge Studio of Delaware reopens with a limited schedule of games starting May 3rd.  Pre-registration is required, and other restrictions apply.  Please visit www.bridge-studio.org for up-to-date information and registration instructions.

Saturday Delaware-wide Online Games Continue

Flighted Pairs Games Continue at the DSBA Virtual Club

Flighted pairs games will continue each Saturday morning 10:00 EDT on BBO, at least through the end of May.

As before, the Delaware State Bridge Association will award DOOR PRIZES and make a donation for each participant to the Food Bank of Delaware.

On BBO, look for "DSBA Flight A/B/C Pairs" under Virtual Clubs.  You can choose Flight C if you and your partner each have less than 500 MP, Flight B if you each have less than 1500 MP, or Flight A otherwise.

Here's the April flyer, which also describes the details for the May games.
