Most Columbia Bridge Club games now use hand records from www.thecommomgame.com. Club level results continue to be posted on this website as well as the ACBL Club Results page (www.acbl.org). But if you go to the TCG website (thecommongame.com), you can compare your results with all other clubs that participate in the Common Game, (except for those who have a Howell movement). Furthermore, The Common Game keeps track of your results from week to week to help you gage how successful you are compared to others playing the same hands.

We no longer guarantee partners; however, if you call by 7:00 p.m. on Sunday night, we will try to find a suitable partner if your regular partner is unavailable. Renate is the primary contact (443/527-4744) and Ron is alternate (443/622-2730).

Requests for Corrections, Comments and suggestions are welcome. Contact Ron or Renate at rjconlon@hotmail.com or by phone at 410/519-1518 or 443/527-4744.

During winter weather warnings check this website to determine if there will be a game. We will strive to have a firm decision posted by noon on Monday.
