Welcome to the Unit 216 & Des Moines Area web site - bridgewebs.com/unit216. We have ACBL sanctioned duplicate bridge games running most days. (Check the Information and Calendar items). We also have a variety of instructional classes (See Bridge Classes item) and several times a year hold ACBL Sectional tournaments at the center.

Be sure to check out the Using the Site section (under the News Page menu item) for first time users.

There is a section under News Page for Older News Items (over a year old or so).

New Alert Procedures:

Late last year the ACBL announced some changes to their alert procedures.
You may wish to review these changes here.


Live Games:

Due to the most recent CDC guidelines on COVID-19, people entering the Bridgehouse in Cobblestone Square-

   1. Must provide proof to have completed a Covid-19 vaccination protocol at least 2 weeks ago.

   2. Masks are NOT required but you are welcome to wear one and follow other safety measures.

   3. No food or smoking is allowed in the building.

   4. Please return chairs under tables as you found them.

One other thing. We will be using new BridgeMate scoring pads (like often used at tournaments).
We may have glitches initially, so please be patient with Nancy & Gregg till we get things working smoothly.
