New Playing Site !

Beginning with the game on Monday 30 March, these Boulder daytime games will be moving to the Boulder Elks Club, 3975 28th Street:
    Boulder Bridge Club     directors: Hupka / Needham     (present site: Mtn View Methodist)
    Wednesday Afternoon Club     director: Jim Johnson     (present site: St Andrew Presbyterian)
    Bridge on Thursday     director: Jean Hupka     (present site: St Andrew Presbyterian)
    Friday Afternoon Club     director: Paul Haynes     (present site: St Andrew Presbyterian)

Detailed driving instructions follow. Shortly we hope to supplement these instructions with a map.

The nearest major intersection is 28th Street (US 36) and Jay Road.

Proceeding south on 28th from Jay Road, you will encounter the following landmarks on your right:

  1. Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church
  2. Elks Park,   and
  3. the Sunrise Senior Living complex.
At the south edge of Sunrise Senior Living (0.3 mile south of Jay Road) turn sharp right onto the Elks Club driveway. Signs marking this driveway read "Sunrise Senior Living" and "B.P.O. Elks 566". Follow the curving driveway around the north side of the Sunrise Senior Living complex to the Elks Club parking lot. Enter the Elks building through the door at the north end.

If you approach the Elks Club driving north on 28th Street, you will find the driveway 0.7 mile north of Iris Avenue. Sign marking this driveway reads "Sunrise Senior Living" -- the Elks Club sign is not visible when approaching from the south. Turn left onto the driveway.

If you want to bypass the Boulder traffic on 28th Street, that can be done by approaching via the northern part of US-36 or via Jay Road:

  • From Lyons, take US-36 eastbound (same as 28th St southbound) to the Elks.
  • From Longmont, turn right from CO-119 (Diagonal) at Jay Road, then left at 28th.
  • From Lafayette, go north on 75th Avenue from CO-7 (Arapahoe Avenue), then left at Jay Road to 28th, then left again.
  • From Denver, when approaching Boulder on US-36 (Turnpike), exit to CO-157 (Foothills Parkway), then continue all the way to the automatic merge onto CO-119 toward Longmont, then turn sharp left at Jay Road to 28th, then left again.
  • From Golden, when approaching Boulder on CO-93 (South Broadway), turn right at Baseline Road, then left at CO-157 (Foothills Parkway), then continue to the automatic merge onto CO-119 toward Longmont, then sharp left at Jay Road to 28th, then left again.

At the end of the game, it may be best to exist out the "back" driveway to 26th Street, then north to Jay Road. If traffic problems exist on US-36 toward Denver, then CO-7 to Lafayette or CO-93 toward Golden may be reasonable alternatives.
