Dr. Sriharsha "Harsha" Hindupuram

It is with great sadness that we notify the Barrie Bridge Community of the passing of Dr. Sri (Sriharsha Hindupuram).  Dr. Sri age 71 was a good friend, teacher of bridge and an all round great person.  He will surely be missed.  A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

The club would like to be more environmentally friendly and as such will stop providing plastic and styrofoam cups for members and guests. We have a full kitchen and lots of storage space if members want to leave a mug or water bottle between games.  There is a fridge and two freezer units avilable for member use with lots of ice.
