Volunteer Recognition Day - Sunday May 9

We are a member-owned club that functions on volunteerism.

Please join us on Sunday, May 6 at 1:00 pm for a game of bridge and some coffee and cake as we honour all those who help make the London Bridge Centre the best it can be.

There will be no game fee for this event. A sign-up list will be available closer to the event date. If possible, there will be a separate limited point game.  

Thanks to our Vounteers

Who buys the cookies? Where do we get the coffee? Who loads the dishwasher? Who takes out the recycling? Our Volunteers do! It takes many hands to play hands at the London Bridge Centre. 

As a member managed bridge club, the London Bridge Centre relies on our members, our Volunteers, to enable the club to operate successfully. And do we have more than handful of volunteers? We sure do! Just take a look at our Committee and Volunteers  page on the website.   We all owe our many volunteers much gratitude and a hearty thanks.  

Lost and Found

Lost and Found - Mondays at 12:15

What did I do wrong in this hand?

We all ask ourselves, where did I mess up? Join us after the Monday 0-300 game for some answers on those difficult hands. We will help you identify where you Lost it and help you Find the correct play for that difficult hand.

Ask Dwight

Down 2 Vulnerable!

Perplexed? Annoyed! Thinking about blaming your partner?

So what went wrong?  Why not:  Ask Dwight?

Dwight Bender has offered to answer questions for LBC members, in a format similar to the popular Monday morning Lost & Found sessions. If you are puzzled about a recent hand, then you can Ask Dwight how it should have been bid, played or defended. 

Just email Ask Dwight providing the session, board number and your question and he will provide you with some helpful tips within 24 hours. 

Selected questions and answers are posted on the website here.
