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 Christian 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.

Kona Bridge News & Announcements

 

Wednesday Traffic Request

School is starting on Thursday, August 17 so please do not enter the gate until after 12:15 to allow students to leave.

Regular Wednesday Schedule:  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

299er Sections

299er Section

(Formerly known as 199er Section)

Due to approaching ineligibility for some players (that is having more than 199 MPs) this popular section on Mondays has been expanded to include any player with up to 299 masterpoints. 

 

Every Monday as long as we have enough players.

Newer players are encouraged to attend.

Only players with less than 300 master points may play in the 299er section. 

But there is always an Open section for everyone else. 

 

Play for Charity

Play Bridge for Hospice of Kona

July 31 and August 2 and 3 we played Charity games to benefit Hospice of Kona.   With your generous donations and help from ACBL and Kona Bridge Club we presented Hospice of Kona with a check for $200.  Remember, just the fact that you are played helped because ACBL donated $4 for each table for these 3 games. 


Thank you for your support.
