Fall Rookie-Master Game Thursday Oct 25th 7:00 pm, sign up sheet at the club, or email to sign up.
The Erin Berry is the fall Rookie-Master Game. The event is named in memory of Erin Berry, a gifted student and bridge player who was tragically killed in a car accident on January 30, 1998, three days before her 17th birthday.
The games are run using computer hands so that players across the country play the same deals, and printed hand analyses, prepared by top Canadian players, are provided. The pair with the best percentage score in Canada is declared National Winners and receives a trophy. The pairs with the top percentage score in each Zone receive a plaque. All club winners receive certificates.
A “Rookie” is considered to be a player without much experience at playing duplicate bridge. Although we use a masterpoint cut off of 50, we are really intending that the player be fairly new to the game of duplicate bridge. Players that have let their ACBL membership lapse or have not been remitting master points for recording, although below the 50 master point level, do not necessarily fit the definition of “rookie”. Club managers or game directors may prohibit a pair from playing in this game, if they feel that the partnership does not include a player that fits the definition of a “Rookie”.
Paddy Allan has earned the title of Diamond Life Master, having acquired 5000 masterpoints, placing her in the top 2% of all ACBL members.
Paddy is the fourth player, and the first woman, from Kingston Bridge to achieve this rank.
Congratulations to Judith Cardwell and Larry Sands on gaining the rank of Club Masters!
Great job you two!
