September Club Points Results

All the winnings for the month have been sent in to the ACBL.  Lots of points were earned this month, in part because of the Club Championship games in the last week of the month.  September top point getters were Charlie Fortune (6.99), Doug Roberts (6.72), and Margaret Ann Dodson (6.01).  A total of 59.52 black points were won by 22 ACBL members (with lots more accrued by others who are not yet members).  Congratulations to all participants.  And a big thanks to Club Manager Audrey MacGillivray who arranges the games.

There will be ST@C games in October; so let's get our bidding shoes on and see if we can get different top point winners next month.

What's New at the Club - October

Our Executive had a meeting on September 29.  Of interest are:

1.  We will be moving our playing area to Sharon St. John United, just down the street from where we currently play.  The date for moving is not yet decided, but it should happen by mid-October; so, stay tuned to this page for more details.

2.  Fall lessons are continuing with Charlie Fortune doing intermediate lessons.  M A Dodson and Irene Szabla are prepared to offer introductory lessons as soon as we get enough people signed up.  Tell all your friends.  This is the greatest card game ever!!!

3.  The Lion and Skunk game will be held on October 28.  People from our club and our sister clubs in Antigonish and Truro have been invited to come in teams of four for the full day event.  The winner takes hom the lion, the losers...oh, well...


Keep an eye on our News Page...

Two more members get new rankings

Last month we reported that Susan Totten, who just recently joined the ACBL, had achieved her Junior Masters rank; Margaret Ann Dodson has just eclipsed 200 points and thereby moved up to NABC Master; Charlie Fortune and Doug Roberts had both achieved Bronze Life Master ranks having each gotten over the 500 Masterpoint hurdle. 

We missed the fact that Irene Szabla had also moved up to NABC Master.  And in September, Ron O'Brien also earned enough points to be classified as NABC Master.

Congratulations to all.  Fine work, ladies and gents!!!
