Welcome to the Official Site for the Richmond Bridge Association, Unit 109, part of District 6 of the American Contract Bridge League! Here you will find information on duplicate bridge in central Virginia.
The RBA will host our Fall Sectional, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, October 16 -18 at the Clarion Hotel Central on North Boulevard.
Our format is the same with two Open Sessions on Friday and Saturday and Friendly Bridge sessions on Friday morning and afternoon and Saturday morning.
There is a BAM game Saturday afternoon, giving you two chances to win lots of masterpoints.
There will be a bracketed Sunday Swiss with a seven-board round robin against the other seven teams in your bracket.
Get your partners and teams together for what plans to be a big tournament.
On Saturday September 26, 16 teams competed for the Reidelbach trophy at the Bridge Center. The trophy was won by the team of Ann Rae Gershman, Clay McCaskey, Mary Baril, and Tom Kasvin. Congratulations on your fine play. See complete results.
The new Friendly Bridge class for newcomers begins again on Sunday, September 27, 2015. No registration required. Just show up at the Bridge Center that Sunday between 5:30 and 5:45. The lessons are from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. You will receive a free book, and the first 4 lessons are FREE! At week 5, you will pay $4.00 per week. Please come and try bridge out. You will learn a new skill while meeting some very nice folks. It might be the best decision you ever made!
Congratulations to all Unit 109 players who have achieved a new rank as of September 2015, especially:
Mary Krenytzky of Broad Run, VA: Bronze Life Master
As you may already know there is a world championship bike race impacting travel all over the Richmond area. The tournament is at the Clarion Hotel Central on the Boulevard.
If you are coming from the East and traveling west on I-64, take exit 78 at the Boulevard and you are behind the hotel with access to the parking lot. This is not a change.
However, if you going east on I-64, exit 78 ramp will be closed both Saturday and Sunday. Instead. continue on I-64 two more miles and take the Belvidere exit. Turn left immediately onto Leigh Street and then another immediate left onto Belvidere where you can get back on I-64 West. Get off at Exit 78 putting you behind the hotel with access to the parking lot.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Game time is 10:30 a.m. both days. We’ll have coffee, donuts and bagels starting at 9:30 a.m. See you Saturday.
