Hi Duplicate Lite Enthusiasts,

🎉Glamour and Glitz Holiday Bridge Party - Wednesday, December 30 12:30 pm-5:30 pm (approx) at Elgin Hall🎉
The response to this exciting afternoon bridge game for Wednesday, December 30 has been excellent as we have "sold out" at this time. However, it is our experience that the unexpected happens and cancellations do occur. So we are starting a waiting list. Players of all abilities, including beginners, are most welcome if openings become available. Please inform Ed L'Heureux or Jane Youngberg if you wish to be added to the waiting list. The cost of this game is $10.00 per player. And, extra Masterpoints will be awarded as the game is a "Charity" game in support of the Canadian Bridge Federation. There will be 2 sections - open and newcomers.
Attire and Format:
Wearing something glitzy and glamorous is encouraged as we salute the approach of the new year- 2016! There will be a special activity with prizes for the best table at the start of the event so please arrive 10 - 15 minutes early. Of course, there will be prizes for the most creative and adventurous outfits.
Following the completion of the game at around 4:30 pm, refreshments and food will then be served. This "get together" time provides a wonderful opportunity for players to discuss the bridge hands, to circulate and to make new friends!
Parking will be tight so please consider car pooling. Drivers will be asked to park in four rows as requested by one of our volunteers.
Still wanting more Bridge on December 30?
After the refreshments and food, super keen players may also consider playing in the December 30th evening game at Sunnyside Hall 7:00 pm.
