Check the Duplicate Bridge column in The Buffalo News each Saturday for weekly game results and other announcements. Unfortunately, space there is limited, but additional results, more complete announcements and other information can be found in the weekly Internet version of the column at www.buffalonews.com. For quickest results, search the words "duplicate bridge" and Saturday's date. For the latest information and detailed game results directly from the clubs, check the web sites of clubs in Western New York.


Welcome to the Western New York Unit 116 website.  Our unit of over 450 dedicated bridge players is part of the American Contract Bridge League’s District Five.  Geographically, we encompass the counties of Erie and Niagara, at the eastern end of Lake Erie and western end of Lake Ontario, in New York State.  We often have players from across the Canadian border playing at our clubs.

Our goal is to promote bridge and support local bridge clubs.   We have six open, active clubs. We host three sectionals each year – January, April/May, and September – as well as a Non-Life Master sectional in the summer.  The District Five Regional is held at the end of October and famously titled “Spooktacular”.  Numerous unit games are held throughout the year.

We publish a bi-monthly newsletter, Bridge Buff, for and about its members.  It regularly includes extensive interviews with several members, an interesting bridge hands and analysis, and perhaps a good recipe enjoyed at a Unit game.


The "Bridge Buff" issues were retrieved (thank you  Kathy Pollock  and Alex Kowal) starting with  issues back in the past. You can read old and current issues to see where we were and where we are going as a bridge community. There was a gap in publishing from March to October 2007, when the bridge community was torn apart by controversy and the Buff was on hold.
Help preserve the bridge history of Unit 116 by downloading the files and saving them - you will never know when and who from the future generations will read them.
