NEW!!! - Maritime Bridgeline Newletter
Smile of the Day

This elderly genteman goes to the Dr. for his annual checkup. The Dr. is impressed that this man is in even better health that he was the year before. Curious, he asks him what he does for mental stimulation. The man answers that he plays duplicate bridge. The doctor, a bridge player, tell him that's great. "And what do you do for physical stimulation?" ''I sit East-West" is the reply.   

♣ 

A club is led against a 7D contract and declarer has four clubs to the jack. His partner, the dummy, says:  "I have some good and some bad news for you.  The good news is that I am void in clubs, the bad news is that I am also void in diamonds." 

 

A Bridge Teacher is called over to a table and an elderly gentleman student tells him that he has opened 1H and there have been three passes back to him so he bids 2H .... again there were three passes back to him so he wants to know if his hand is worth a 3H bid? 

 

Patrick Jourdain, a famous bridge player-teacher from Wales is called over to a table at one of his classes where a hand has just passed out, but 4th hand had 17 high card points. "So why did you pass?" asks Patrick. "Because you told us after three passes the bidding is over, so I had to pass."

FLASH MOB SWISS TEAMS - OCTOBER 28, 2017

 

          BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

 

The response to our Flash Mob Swiss Team's events has be really tremendous. Thanks to all the past participants for your kind words .... we really appreciate your feedback.

The next event is Saturday October 28, 2017 starting at 10:00 am. Sign up sheets and the Rules of Contest have been posted at the club on the bulletin board.

Just a short summary of how it works:

          You sign up in pairs of two. 

          The Director will make up teams of four so that the field is equitatable and everyone have a great chance to win.

          The game consists of 5 rounds of 6 board matches, with a short break at noon for lunch.

          The event will be over by 3:30 pm.

          Bring a lunch .... there is not enough time to go off site for lunch.

          Masterpoints will be awarded

          Team games are a slightly different philosophy vs match points.

          If you are unsure about how a team game works please ask any Director.

          Pre-registration is mandatory so that the Director can make sure there are full teams and properly handicap the field.

Please contact Carol Airst if you have any questions. She can be reached at 453-1279 or by email at carol.airst@yahoo.ca
