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 Our Club.
Novice Game Schedule Change
Starting July 22 the Novice Game will be held on Wednesdays in conjunction with the regularly scheduled Open Game. A Novice is a player with 20 or fewer master points. Games begin at 1:00; please arrive no later than 12:45. Or come earlier, around 12:30, and help set up tables. Arriving early also helps the Director who must sign everyone in and organize the day's game.
Rexanne and Dan will be at the Bridge Building by 12:25 to review and answer bridge questions or talk about any concerns that you may have.

President's Message re: Summer Update as of July 16
Aloha KBC Members,
Our Novice Game that has been happening on Mondays is being moved to Wednesdays starting next week, July 22nd. Rexanne and I will be there for the novices at 12:25 to review and answer bridge questions or concerns that have come up since the novice games started a few weeks ago. I apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause. Remember, novices are welcome to play in the regular games any time!
On Monday, July 20, Sue Brown will begin her Bridge Bite series on Michaels Cue Bids at 12:25pm. All are welcome and encouraged to attend! Remember to arrive early and check in first.
Also..another reminder about the Unit game in Hilo on Sunday, July 26th. There will be a barbecue lunch before the game which will begin at 1:00pm. Why not take a Sunday drive to Hilo!!
As soon as I know about our schedule for the coming school year I will let everyone know.
May 23 saw our first ever Open Play Novice Section since The Bridge Building was opened.
