WELCOME TO THE COLUMBIA BRIDGE CLUB’S HOME PAGE.
UPDATE ON CHRIS (posted 4/22/17) Our son, Chris completed the Boston Marathon on Patriots Day, 4/17/17 in 5.5 hours. The weather was dry and seasonable and the terrain was “hilly”. His first 13 miles were great but he got progressively slower. He was excited to finish even though he did not beat his goal of 5 hours. He did top $9,000 in donations to Back on My Feet! We were given accommodations for two nights on the 31st floor of the Marriott Copley Place overlooking the Charles River courtesy of the Marriott Corporation. We also received complimentary grandstand seating at the finish line! His next saga is the Saint Croix Half Ironman (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run) on May 7th and we will accompany him! Thank you very much Mike Mayer for directing the game on 4/17 and for agreeing to direct the game on 5/8. (We will be at St. Croix from 5/2 – 5/9.)
THANK YOU!!! (posted 4/11/17) We offer heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the Back on My Feet Charity Game on 4/3/17 and especially to those who donated extra money for this very worthwhile charity. We are excited to say that the total donations from bridge players was over $3,000.00! We are also grateful to the Severna Park Bridge Club, the Bridge Club of Baltimore and the Laurel Bridge Club, all of home promoted/participated in the Back on My Feet fundraiser. Total funds donated on behalf of our son, Chris, is expected to top $9,000 by the end of this week! Thanks also to Mike Mayer who volunteered to direct the Columbia Game on 4/17/17 as we will be in Boston to watch our son run the marathon.
Most Columbia Bridge Club games now use hand records from www.thecommomgame.com. Club level results continue to be posted on thiomes website as well as the ACBL Club Results page (www.acbl.org). But if you go to the new website, you can compare your results with all other pairs that participate in “The Common Game”. 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 email@example.com or by phone at 410/519-1518 or 443/443-527-4744.
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.
The Columbia Bridge Club has weekly duplicate bridge games on Monday evenings at 7:15, located at the Church of Saint Matthew, 7271 Eden Brook Drive, Columbia 21046.
The scores from each game are usually posted on Monday nights by midnight. For your convenience, we post games results on the website and maintain an archive of older games as well. Results are also posted on the ACBL Home Page (www.ACBL.org).
