Game strata are generally: open for A, 0-2000 for B, and 0-300 for C. However, strata may be adjusted by the director to accommodate the playing field and achieve better balance. ACBL rules require at least 5 pairs to have a strata lower than open.
Laurel Bridge Club
The bridge club is a co-op, operated by a group of players. The goal is to keep a decent quality club open in the area, and break about even on cost. To keep entry fees low, the club owners direct on a volunteer basis. Club History.
