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).

Important Information


The Bridge Center has many great bridge books that can be checked out at any time.

Sad News:

I am sorry to hear that Kak Burkholder passed away Sunday.
She and Harvey who preceeded her were stalwarts of bridge in Ames for many years.

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