Aloha and Welcome to the Kona Bridge Club

All bridge players and visitors are welcome.  Kona Bridge Club is an ACBL sanctioned non-profit organization dedicated to serving the duplicate bridge community on the Big Island of Hawaii.  We meet at The Bridge Building at the  Makua Lani Christian Academy, 74-4966 Kealaka'a Street, Kailua Kona, Hawaii.  Drive to the north end of Kealaka`a Street, turn left through Makua Lani Academy's gate and follow the driveway to the bottom.  It will turn to the right and the words 'The Bridge Building' are in large block letters on the building.  Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the scheduled start time.   More About Big Island Clubs.

Game Date/Time Changes

*** ALERT - FEBRUARY-MARCH CHANGES ***

as of 10/28/16

Next week will be as follows: 

  • No Bridge Monday, February 27 and Thursday, March 2 due to rescheduling for Makua Lani's GIG Week activities.

  • Saturday, March 11 and 25 'make-up games' at 1:00

199er Sections

199er Sections Thursday, February 16 & 23

Then Changing to Mondays March 6 ....

We will continue through February having a separate Thursday 199er section along with our usual Open section.  Only players with less than 200 master points will play in the 199er section. 

Beginning Monday, March 6 we will move the 199er section to the Monday game.  We hope this will help more of our players to participate.

We plan to have this as a regular feature each week to encourage newer players to attend.
