GAME TIME CHANGES: During the week of July 29th to Aug 3rd all of our Club Games will be AFTERNOON GAMES. The Mon., Tue., Wed., and Thu. games will all start at 1:00 p.m., and the Fri. game will start at its customary 12:45 p.m. start time. These are all Regular Club Games and everyone is strongly encouraged to play in these games.
GOLD POINT OPPORTUNITY: If you need gold points to eventually become a Life Master, or if you want gold points to help climb the Life Master ladder, there is an opportunity for you to get gold points at our club by Registering for REACH, and playing any 2 or more of the 5 games during the week of July 29th to August 3rd. You don't have to play with the same partner, but you must play at least two of those games with other ACBL Members. Contact Mark at 705-942-6one68, or at markandrewbrown(at)shaw.ca if you would like to Register for REACH and have an opportunity to win gold at our club during the week of July 29th to August 3rd.
