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 some other rare events.

Seating

A book located near the sign-in computer lets you tell us your plans for future games. It is helpful to know both when  you are coming and when you are not, and your partner's name.

If you have a steady partner willing to commit to a regular schedule of play, let us know and then notify us if you are NOT coming.

When we expect you, your table position can be pre-planned to improve the game balance choose a good movement more quickly.  Your reservation expires at 9:55 a.m. 

Please check in to get your table assignment when you arrive.

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

Need A Partner?

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.   

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

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.
