The Corvallis Heart of the Valley Bridge Center is up and running! For ways to help and get involved, please click here.

Welcome . . .

A huge THANK YOU! to Barbara Seagram for gracing us with her presence this last week, providing us with seminars, playing in our games with local players, and providing all with a Very Good Time.  We hope that this is an event that can soon be repeated.

If you want to know more about Barbara (and this is a completely unsolicited but shameless plug!), you can visit her website at Barbara Seagram School of Bridge.  Here you can find articles, books, and a host of other bridge information.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT from Albany Bridge Club

The Albany Bridge Club is excited to announce that they have leased space in the Two Rivers Market for games as of July 1st, 2014.  Two Rivers Market is located at 250 Broadalbin St SW in downtown Albany, near the courthouse.  The room is suite 215 upstairs.  There is an elevator available.  On-street parking is available, as well as parking on the west side of the building.  Come join us at the bridge table!

 

Welcome to the Unit 477 (Corvallis and Albany, Oregon) duplicate bridge clubs’ website!  Officially, we are Unit 477, District 20, of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL).  Unofficially, we are a group of friendly people who enjoy playing the world’s greatest card game!

Between the two clubs, we offer stratified, duplicate bridge almost every weekday, plus some weekend special events. Games are played in both Albany and Corvallis, days and evenings. On Tuesday afternoons and Friday nights, Corvallis sponsors a game specifically for players with less than 200 masterpoints.

Our clubs use Bridgemate electronic scoring machines that speed the game, provide fast results after the game is over, and produce summaries of the contracts played at each table for every board. Hand records are also available after games.  Additionally, complete results showing session winners, player ranking, and game summaries are available on this website.  To see those results, just click on the Calendar/Scores page, click on a specific day, and then click on either Score or Hand Record.

We also maintain a calendar of current events, so check our Weekly Game Schedule or Special Games page for the times and locations of our games.

The individual clubs have no annual dues, but instead use a pay-as-you-play system—most games at the Albany and Corvallis clubs are $5 per player.  ACBL membership is not a requirement to play, but is required to collect masterpoints.

  • If you would like to join us, all you need to do is show up with your partner at one of the events listed on the Weekly Game Schedule or Special Games page.
  • If you want to play, but don’t have a partner, see Partnerships on the Contacts page for options.
  • If you are new to bridge and would like more information, please contact our New-Player Coordinator, listed on the Contacts page.

We hope to see you at our bridge table . . . soon!
