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.

Wednesday Traffic Request

Makua Lani students finish their day at 12:00 on Wednesdays which means they are all trying to drive out the gate at that time. 

Sooooo the school has asked us to please not attempt to enter the gate before 12:15 to alleviate gridlock.  If you arrive and see a tie up at the gate please just wait on the street for a few minutes until the road clears up.  Your Kokua is appreciated and you can use the extra few minutes to review your convention card.  cool

199er Sections

199er Section Thursday, January 19

Last week we had 4 full tables!  We are having a separate 199er section along with our usual Open section.  Only players with less than 200 master points will play in the 199er section.  We hope you will come participate in our game so that you can compete against people in your section.  We plan to have this as a regular feature each week to encourage newer players to attend.

Holiday Game Mahalo

Thank you, Thank you Marlene and Dan

for putting together such an enjoyable Holiday Brunch and Bridge.

The food was great, the table favors, lei for everyone and the poinsettias for those who were especially good this Christmas season (or maybe they were just lucky?) were an extra surprise.

A Big Round of Applause.
