2020 President

David Lawrence has been playing bridge for more than 30 years, and is a Bronze Life Master. He comes from a card-playing family where his parents and grandparents played duplicate bridge. In the early 2000’s, David served on the Portsmouth Country Club Board of Directors for four years as Vice President in charge of the golf course where he developed budgets and provided direction for golf course improvements and staff.

After retiring from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in 2012 as an engineer, David became the Club Manager for Great Bay Bridge Club, and assisted with teaching a youth bridge group for two years. He joined the NHBA Board in 2018 where he stepped in to run a successful sectional tournament.


  • Due to COVID-19, the ACBL has canceled all in-person tournaments through the end of 2020. Our State Championship is scheduled for Oct 24-25. We're looking into holding it online on BBO. We'll provide more details once we've completed the preparations.

  • Unit 150 is hosting games on BBO daily. See the calendar for times. If you haven't played in one yet, give it a try!

  • Nominations are open for the prestigious Leroy Lake Award. Is there anyone you can think of that has gone above and beyond expectations this year? Deadline for submitting nominations is Sept 15.
