  Results display on our web site

We are considering suppressing the results on the Bridgemates. Please discss any concerns you may have about this change with Michael. No decision will be made on this until Colin returns in late January ... please have a look at:

  1. Have a look here to see where/how one can view results for a board, similar to that which you now see on the Bridgemate after a score has been accepted by E/W. 
  2. An intro to the results engine available on the web site can be seen here.
  3. Discussion of goings-on at the table that detracts from the ability to play all the boards in the 3 hours alloted time can be seen here.

 

  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. We have modified the customer appreciation opportunities as of Jan 1 2019 :

  • EXISTING: Bring someone to the Thursday evening game who has not played Thursday evening before … you and that person are free.
  • EXISTING: All the bridge you want at $25 per week.
  • MODIFIED: Play a minimum of 3 games in the same week (at $8 for each), and the 4th game in that week is free
  • NEW: Thursday evening game is $6 (rather than $8) for all yes.
  Club Championship games in 2019

Once in each quarter we can offer a Club Championship (CC)  game ... same cost, more master points. The Bridge Connection will be offering

  • One pairs CC for the Tuesday morning game
  • One pairs or one team CC for the Thursday morning game, based on players' preference

  ACBL sanctioned

All games at The Bridge Connection give ACBL masterpoints. Most club games give black MPs, and STaC (Sectional Tournament aClubs) games give silver MPs. Some special games give red points. Please check in with Colin for further details on this.

The Bridge Connection follows/adheres to the ACBL Zero Tolerance Policy, details available here. We also appreciate your not wearing any scented product to the club, preserving an environment friendly to all.

Please check-in with Colin, Michael, or Directors if there is anything you would like to discuss related to the club. We also encourage suggestions from one and all with new ideas, as well as feedback on the games and more.

Deep down, we are all in it for the same reason ... the game is part of our psyche and dear to our smiley. Be it down 3 or bid 7 made 7, it's all about having fun and being pleasant to one and all at the club.

  Our coordinates

Players are requested to use the door on the right when facing the front of the building. They are not allowed in the kitchen and, if something is needed in there, please ask the Director.
