Seeking New Board Directors

At our AGM on May 9, 2017, we will be electing members to join our Board of Directors. This is an open call to anyone who is interested and believes that they can contribute.

CLICK HERE for Information on how to Volunteer!

Currently, the Board consists of 5 directors whose terms expire this year. The Board is recommending that we expand to 7 directors to spread the work and help with the management of the club as we transition from a start-up to an ongoing operational mode. We have polled the current Board and only 4 of the existing 5 directors will be seeking re-election. We need your help!

The Board is recommending that we modify our election process so that each director is elected for a 2 year term to ensure continuity over time. In order to transition, for the next AGM, four of the incumbents will be elected for a two-year term and three for a one-year term.....in subsequent years all elected directors will be asked to serve a two year term.

Our success as a club depends on our volunteer base. Please consider volunteering for these important roles!

 
 
This week @ MObridge

Game Schedule
We are continuing our $5.00 promotional game pricing for both our Friday afternoon Open/NLM game and our Sunday Stratified games to help build attendance.

There will a Bridge Plus game starting this Wednesday (February 22) at 1:30 pm, running for 4 weeks. This program serves as a bridge between lessons and the Novice games and is forr players with 0 - 5 MP (and awards masterpoints). Players do not have to come with a partner and may ask for assistance during the play.

On Saturday, February 25, we will be hosting our first (hopefully monthly) Pot Luck game. Dinner at 6:00 with a game starting at 7:00 pm. There is a sign-up sheet at the club tio help us plan the number of people we are expecting.

On Monday, February 27, we are running our Orientation / Mentoring Game starting at 7:00pm.  The “mentees” for this game will be members with 0 to 20 Master Points and the “Mentors” will be members with <1000 masterpoints.  This game is sanctioned as an Open game (awards more Masterpoints). We have a significant number of new players who are either playing in our two supervised games or just completing beginner classes.  The primary goal for this mentoring game is to give those players an opportunity to play in a pairs game with an experienced partner who can help them through the logistics of a game while at the same time answering questions and offering some fundamental pointers to help them and their game.  It is also a terrific opportunity for them to meet other members and enjoy the social aspect of MObridge. A sign-up sheet has been posted on the bulletin board.  As of this notice, we are still looking for additional Mentors to sign up.  Signup sheet at the club or send us an email if you are willing to help.  

Spring Team League
There will be NO 0 to 500 NLM league this spring. There is still room for additional teams for the 0 to 2000 Team League.  The deadline for entries is Feb. 26.

Education
Sally is running the second session of the Two over One Seminar on Monday, February 20  from 1:15 pm - 3:30 pm.

In addition, there is an End Plays seminar on  Thursday Evening (March 2) - 7:15 – 9:30pm.  This session will introduce you to a play technique which allows you to let your opponents help you make a contract – much to their chagrin! You’re gonna’ love it!

The Education plans for 2017 have been updated ion the website with new Introduction to Bridge courses starting in May. Please let anyone you know who might be interested in learning bridge!

Founding Members Loan Repayments
As the club continues to flourish and grow, we are in a position to re-pay a further 25% of the loans made to us by members. Following this payment all members who loaned monies to help with the start-up will have had 75% of the loan repaid. 

Cheques will be prepared and distributed by March 31.
