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 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—games at the Albany club are $5 per player – games at the Corvallis club 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!
