  Qualify for the Bridge Week in May 2019

CNTC qualifier in the Ottawa area ...

Al McLellan in conjunction with Bridge21 (Bill Wheeler) intends to run a CNTC Qualifier event on Wednesday January 9, 2019 at Pineview Golf Course, 1471 Blair Road (just south of 417). Game time is 7:00pm. This event is stratified:

  • A    to infinity
  • B    < 2500
  • C    < 1000

If you do not qualify at the club level and wish to play in this event at Bridge Week in Burnaby BC on May 4 - 12, 2019 you will be charged the following fee per player:

  • A    $100
  • B    $30
  • C    $25

This will be the last and only club qualifier in the Ottawa area as far as I know.

  Customer appreciation program

For all the incentives mentioned below, any extra game charges are still the responsibility of the player. Extra charges could be for STaCs or some charity/special games.

New (and existing) customer appreciation opportunities:

  • NEW: Play one of Monday / Tuesday/ Wednesday / Thursday morning games (at $8 each) and pay ½ price ($4) for Thursday evening game. The Thursday evening game must be the same week as the game played earlier in the week.
