Collingwood, Ontario

​​​Welcome to Blue Mountain Duplicate Bridge Club.   We are an ACBL sanctioned Invitational Club located at the Collingwood Leisure Time Club, 100 Minnesota Street, Collingwood, Ontario, Canada.     The Leisure Time Club is a seniors' recreational club, with a minimum age requirement of 50 years of age. For more details, select 'Club Information' in menu on the left.

Club Manager Needed

The Blue Mountain Bridge Club is in need of a Manager who will carry out related  administrative duties, liaise with ACBL, ensure appropriate club and games sanctioning and work in consort with games directors  as well as the Board of Directors. Ideally this will be a shared position to ensure smooth uninterrupted management.  It is not a prerequisite that the applicant be a qualified director, although certainly an asset. If you would like to broaden your knowledge about the operations of a sanctioned bridge club, we would love to meet with you. Please speak to Sandy Ivison or Christine Blake.

Table Fee $5 effective January 1st
Table fees will increase to $5.00 p.p. beginning January 1st, 2017
After an in-depth analysis of our current and future finances presented to the BOD by Ron Deschamps, a motion was passed, after much discussion, to raise our table fees from the current $4.00 to $5.00 per person. Membership fees will remain the same at $5.00 per year.
 
The reasons for the increase are as follows:
Currently we are operating at a loss each year.
Due to the exchange rate between our Canadian dollar and the USD, our cost to the ACBL has increased by approximately $1200. per year.
The cost of coffee, cookies etc. has increased over the years.
Bridge supplies such as playing cards, paper, boards, bidding boxes etc. are also more expensive.
We are badly in need of a new computer. The one we have was second hand, is outdated and does not have the capability to download the data needed to run the club effectively and
efficiently.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Teams League 2017
Blue Mountain Duplicate Bridge Club invites bridge players in Southern Georgian Bay to participate in a Teams League that in recent years has been, and will continue to be held in Collingwood. Played the last Friday afternoon of each month, teams of up to six require an identified captain (who is responsible for the team being present) and are "open" to all except for two restrictions:
(1)  Players on any play-day must be or become members of the club, and 
(2)  Teams on any play-day may have only two "Life Masters" or players with >500 master-points.
Entries, which must be submitted to the club, close on 20 January, 2017
Congratulations Cathy, our newest LIFE MASTER and BRONZE LIFE MASTER

     When I could not continue my love affair with downhill skiing and tennis, I took up social bridge in Brampton to keep me sane. Four of us would get together in a home to play bridge and it seemed we did everything else - like talking about recipes, family, vacations etc. This drove me crazy.

      Upon moving to Craigleith in 2001 I started going to Gerry LaChance's beginner lessons and then on to Sandy Dickson's lessons. Both of these were wonderful and I got started playing duplicate.

     In 2008 I began to play with Michael Schneider as a steady partner, which I have immensely enjoyed, receiving most of my black/silver points and some gold and red going on day trips to Toronto and Barrie with him.

      Last summer and fall 2015, Ruth Eidt and I travelled to Sault Ste. Marie, Ottawa and St Catharines and picked up gold and red points.
 
     In 2016 Marie Melnichuk and I travelled to Kingston and London and accumulated more gold/red. All these destinations were like a holiday for me, playing bridge and having fun.
 
     I love playing this game and wish to thank my many partners over the years for putting up with me and helping me to achieve my Life Master. I encourage all those who enjoy bridge to keep on playing forever and trying for your Life Master if desired.
 
Sincerely
Cathy MacDonald
