Welcome to Bridge On The Edge

Web Site

Welcome to the Bridge on the Edge website.  This bridge club is located in the Swilers Rugby Club at 100 Crosbie Road in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.  In 2016 we became a player owned bridge club upon the retirement of the previous club owner, Joan FitzGerald, and with a great deal of much appreciated support from her.  For a map and further information, please see the "Information" menu choice on the left.

Congratulations

Congratulations to Brian and Claudia Shortall, who achieved simultaneous NABC Masters in April at a Regional Tournament in Victoria, BC. They received 1.69 gold masterpoints in Gold Rush games, placing 2nd. In a later Swiss Team game, they received an additional 2.39 gold masterpoints. They also received several red points in side games.

Top Ten Goodwill Gestures

The following list of goodwill gestures appeared recently in the newsletter of the Maritime provinces ACBL units. They are a good reminder of things we should strive to do at every game.

1. Greet and welcome opponents.
2, Always say “ Director, Please” when summoning the Director.
3. Lead or face dummy before you write in your scorecard.
4. Mentor a new player.
5. Say,”Thank you, Partner”
6. Compliment opponent’s play.
7. Discuss hands after the game.
8. Accept defeat and victory with grace.
9. Leave a tidy table,
10. Smile often.

New 99ers game on Thursdays

Bridge on the Edge is pleased to announce that starting on Thursday, May 18, we are replacing the Thursday afternoon Newcomers games with 99ers games. These games are open to all players with 0 to 99 masterpoints. They are played using the same boards and timing as the Competitive games, but they will give those of us with less experience, including Newcomers, the opportunity to play against opponents at our own skill level, and perhaps even win a few masterpoints. Players at any point level are still welcome to play in the Competitive section if they prefer on Thursdays or on any other day.
Only $5 for the first 4 weeks!
