Preparing the 40th drive on May 18, 2024

The APIH Cafédrive is a Non-profit Tournament

The APIH Cafédrive is a non-profit pub crawl tournament (barometer) organised by volunteers. But we certainly have a professional approach.
We work with experienced table officers in each bar and the tournament is under the supervision of qualified and certified referees. These are members of the APIH Bridge Club. The number of bridge couples taking part has been in the region of 170 - 200 pairs over the last 5 years.

The set-up is quite simple. You sign up in advance, pick up your schedule before the tournament starts, and go from bar to bar in the city, playing different opponents each time. There are 8 rounds of 4 boards (barometer), plenty of time to switch between rounds, and if you're really curious you can check the website for live results. The small booklet you receive contains all the information you need, a map with the locations of the participating bars, scoring instructions, emergency phone numbers (director), etc. The walking schedule for the bridge pairs will be set up in such a way that all the participants will meet an equal number of opponents of each playing level. There are prizes, top and bottom for the pair with the most of both, closest to 50%, per level group in which the participant has registered, money for the highest scoring players, and much more.
