This website is privately hosted and free of charge. My name
is Peter Hohl. The idea to start www.bridge-la-palma.de
was born during an extended winter vacation on this island during which
we were looking for other bridge players to team up with. It turned out
to be a rather rewarding experience during which we were able to attain
new friends. As such we decided to create this “social meeting platform”
to find mutually minded people.
So, this is my proposition:
If you are interested to join us, simply write me an
email to email@example.com.
In return, I will send you a username and a password
for our site called "Spielpartner
on La Palma)”. This is necessary to keep your contact
information private and secure. Afterwards you can login with the username
and password to see who is present and ready to play in your area.
Furthermore, you’ll be able to directly contact each other (based on
the contact information you provided) in order to meet up and play without
At the same time, others will be able to see
your status too and might ask you to join them for a round of bridge.
Rest assured that this status information as well as your contact details
is strictly confidential and that this part of the website can be only
reached with your username and password.
Upon request, I shall immediately remove you from the
list (no questions asked).
For starters we would like to keep it simple. We shall
see if this little project of ours turns out to be a formal bridge
club with a registration to a bridge club association in the future.
We just came to realize that most bridge players are most amiable and
pleasant when they share our interest in the picturesque sites of La Palma!
In case you don’t wish to take along a bidding-box, feel free
to use our improvised solution which is a PDF document (for light
package). As such you should be able to track the biddings easily.
Otherwise, you might also be interested to join us. Or come
to our room below Avenida Constitucion on Wednesdays at 4 pm (see map below).
From the beginning of November to the middle of April you will find there
all the bridge players who are in La Palma – as well as bidding boxes, boards,
cards and pamphlets. If you are a couple, you can come whenever you wish.
If you are alone, please register at firstname.lastname@example.org
so that we can try to find a partner for you.
Most recently we also started to advertise our “minority interest
recruitment” via Twitter (@BridgeLaPalma). Any follower is welcome to tag along.
One last request: if you have the possibility to link to
this website, I would very much appreciate the support. A banner for
this website can be found here:

The string will show a banner like this:
Yet, an ordinary text-link will also do. A short note
about your link would be equally appreciated (allowing me to link back
to your website).
Best regards and hope to see you soon,
