 Club Scores


Livermore Bridge Club

The Livermore Bridge club meets Mondays and Thursdays at 10 a.m. Please arrive by 9:50 a.m. so that we may start on time. The fee is $5 / person, including charity games, unit games, and club championships; $6 for STAC. $7 for the Unit North American Pairs Final.

Seating

Please check in and choose a seat assignment appropriate to your playing level before 9:50.

People requiring N/S seats must notify us in advance. If a regular, just notify us when NOT coming.

You can notify via the book, email to pfdubois@gmail.com, or text / call 925-699-1858.  

You may, from time to time, be assigned a direction, even if early, in order to make N/S  available to a wider variety of players.

Need A Partner?

Finding a partner is your responsibility, but we can help, especially for new players. 

Generally, the Director will not be able to play with you, even to make up a full table. You're always welcome to watch if you don't have a partner -- we have some great players to learn from.

Step 1. Join the Email List.

Step 2. Send email to unit501@pfdubois.com asking for a partner for a given day or days. The directors receive this mail too, so no need to ask them separately! 

When replying to partnership requests, use "Reply" not "Reply All". Your reply will go only to the person who asked.   Answer only if able to play.

Please do not send mail to this list EXCEPT to find a partner. You can pick up a phone / email list at the club, and we periodically send it to the email list.
