Survey regarding reopening the club

The Survey is now closed. Thank you for responding. The results are that most want to get back to the table and use real cards and bidding boxes although many would like an online option. However, most are hesitant to return to the table until:

  • a 4th wave has been dealt with
  • there are sufficient vaccination rates
  • health authorities are comfortable approving our kind of indoor activity.

Face to Face is not likely in the next few months. Reopening info will be shared when available.

Club information

Our History

The Alta Vista Duplicate Bridge Club was founded by Robert McGillivray in 1966. Robert's military career dictated a move away from Ottawa and in 1967 Allan Chapman took over. Al remained the director, with Ken Brown as club manager, until 1997. During Al's tenure, the Club developed a reputation for friendliness and encouragement to new bridge players. In 1997, with Al Chapman moving to Perth, Garry Cooligan, a member of the Club since 1966, became its new director.

The club holds a regular Tuesday night game for players of all skill levels at Pineview Golf Course with Al McLellan directing, Teresa Fortin managing finances, and Del Holmes as club manager.
