Serving Oakland, Piedmont, Alameda, Emeryville

 Unit Championships are Back!  Starting Sunday Nov 21 @ 1:00 PM.
First and Third Sundays Each Month at EBCBC 9520 Mountain Blvd, Oakland 
All participants MUST HAVE Proof of Vaccination or No Admittance.  Masks Optional. 

EBCBC reopened June 21 for Face-to-Face play only. Click link bottom left for details and game schedules.
Piedmont continues to offer Virtual Club games on BBO Monday and Thursday evenings,
start times 7:10 pm; ALSO new Virtual Club AFTERNOON GAME on Wednesdays, start time 2:10 pm.

In/at Piedmont we find virtual games have all the advantages of NO DEALING W/ POTENTIAL COVID ISSUES, plus no driving, vaxes or even masks necessary.  No cards, boards, bid boxes, bridge-mates or pads, travelers (thus few if any bothersome score corrections).  No sit-outs, late plays, insufficient bids or any of the other inefficiencies and inconveniences (too numerous to mention them all here, but we all have experienced what they are) of 20th century f2f games.  We are all about 21st century bridge, including time management.  All players have access to their own food, drink, and bathrooms.  Possible addition of zoom if/when it becomes available, to help w/ social aspects.  Bridge industry appears to be at a crossroads now: choice is between best possible games or whatever limited sociability the f2f game may afford; having both doesn't seem possible w/out weakening both. 
We're most grateful to all (and many th'x) for support so far.  Table fee for all games remains $6.
