Club Games in Unit 551


Pair games

Pair games are the usual fare at bridge clubs. You play with the same partner for the entire session. A typical session lasts 3 to 3-1/2 hours, during which you will play 24-28 deals.
The entry fee at the La Fetra Club is $5 for the open pairs games; contact the club manager, Tom Lill, for information on lessons.

The club game schedule at La Fetra is:
Games at La Fetra will resume Tuesday, July 5th. We will hold games on our normal schedule (see below), except the Thursday game is on hold until the Center reopens fully.
The entry fee is being reduced to $5, at least until the end of the year.
At the La Fetra Center, 333 E. Foothill Blvd., Glendora:
NOTE - the Center is currently NOT OPEN evenings, so the Thursday game is on hold.

Monday Afternoon Club Game Is No Longer Held

Because the local Senior Centers, which offer bridge games (although not sanctioned games) are getting good atendance, we are cancelling (forever) the Monday games that were being held at Rose's place.

END OF SPECIAL ANNOUNTMENT

The Monthly Individual is held (usually) on the first Saturday of each month, 9:30 a.m.
Make sure you check HERE before heading over to play!

The entry fee is $3 until further notice.

The schedule for the near future is:

Directions to the club game sites:

La Fetra Center:

From the 210 Freeway Eastbound: Exit at Grand. Go North on Grand to Foothill. Turn right on Foothill and drive past Glendora Ave. Start looking to your left and after a couple of short blocks, you'll see the La Fetra center. Turn (left) and park behind the center or across the street.
From the 210 Freeway Westbound: Exit at Lone Hill. Take Lone Hill North to Foothill. (Alernately, you might wish to turn left at Alosto / Rte. 66 and take a different route North to Foothill.) At Foothill, turn left. Proceed on Foothill past Lorraine, continuing past Cullen. The La Fetra Center is about 1 block further on down Foothill, on your right. Turn right, and park behind the Center or across the street.
From the 57 Freeway: Exit at Auto Center Drive. Turn left on to Auto Center Drive. Turn right at Lone Hill and proceed as above from the 210 Westbound.

Knights of Columbus

From the 210 Freeway: Exit at Lone Hill. Turn north on Lone Hill.
From the 57 Freeway: Exit at Auto Center Drive. Turn left onto Auto Center Drive. Turn right at Lone Hill.
Once you get to Lone Hill: Continue northward for 1/2 mile. Turn right on Route 66. The Knights of Columbus will be on the right hand side of the road. Park on the street, or behind the Whiting Building next door.


The Monthly Individual ("Bridge41")

The individual game is a multi-site affair, so be sure to check this site before the game to find out where the next game will be held.
Directions to Tom's: From the 210 Freeway, exit at Mountain Avenue. (But be warned, there is construction at the intersection of Mountain and Holt, so you may wish to bypass this area.) Proceed south. When you cross Francis St., make sure you are in the right-hand lane. You will see a blinking "Your speed is ... " sign. Turn right in the driveway just before this sign. CAUTION - there are two adjacent driveways here. The first one will not get you where you want to go. It's the second one. There is visitor parkingjust beyond the gate (which is open during daylight hours only). Tom's apartment is to left of the small visitor parking area. But our playing site is on the 2nd floor. In front of that parking area, there's a lobby. Enter the lobby, take the elevator up to the second floor. The playing room is directly opposite the elevator.
Directions to Clint's: From the 210 Freeway, exit at Towne Avenue. Go north a bit to Baseline, then turn right (east). Proceed on Baseline to Mountain (the one in Claremont, NOT the one in Upland!) and turn right. Then an immediate right onto Huron. If you cross over the 210 again, you just missed Huron. 851 is almost to the end of the street. MAP
Directions to Penny's: WARNING! Do not trust your GPS on this one. It will likely take you to Covina instead of San Dimas. Trust me!
From the 57 Freeway, exit on Via Verde. Head west on Via Verde unless you plan to visit Raging Waters. Proceed down the hill. At the bottom of the hill is a traffic signal; that's Puente Street. Turn left, then wind up the road past a wooded area. 948 will be the second house on the right after the wooded area.
Directions to Rose's: This one is tricky. Whoever laid out the roads in the area used a rubber ruler ... and was drunk. Anyway, Exit the 10 at Euclid Ave. Or, coming from the 210, exit on Mountain, go north to Baseline, East to Euclid, then North. Go North on Euclid. North of 24th St., Euclid splits - Euclid takes the left branch, Euclid Crescent is the right (more nearly straight) branch. Keep going until you see Prospect on the right. Rose's place is on the NE corner.


La Fetra offers a variety of lessons at the Knights of Columbus site:
Unfortunately, although they were well received by the participants, the Wednesday lessons have been suspended due to low participation. We are looking into resuming ... some time, some place. Stay tuned.
