 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 and Longest Day. 

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. 

On Mondays, 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.

Our partnership chair is Dan Bergmann, dannebergman@gmail.com, phone  925-699-8169.

 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.

Use of the email list is expected. Craft your message to describe the kind of partner you will accept, and then please accept anyone replying that fits your description. 

A phone list is available if you prefer.  Our partnership chair can help with last-minute problems. 

Stoneridge Creek Bridge 

Games at Stoneridge Creek are restricted to residents.  The ACBL-sanctioned game is currently on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. Grant Robinson is the manager; contact information is here.

Game At Livermore Community Center

There is an unsanctioned game on Fridays from 1-4 p.m. at the Community Center, 4444 East Avenue, Livermore. This is an informal duplicate game using a simplified mode of scoring. For details contact Marge Henry at 447-2735.

The Longest Day

Our Longest Day event set a record for the club with 19 tables, including six tables in a novice section.  The Club donated its entire net proceeds, we raised more than $100 from the book "sale", and your generous donations raised the total to just over $1400 for the Alzheimer's Association. Thanks to everyone for making this event such a surprising success. 

Novice Days

Beginning in July on July 9 & 23, we will have a Novice section.  The game will be stratified 50 / 5 if possible.

The Novice game will play the same hands as the main game, but usually fewer boards (around 20) so you won't be too rushed. 

If successful we will continue this game on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month. 

ALL players are always welcome at any game, and we can make such a section if there are enough players.
