You Can Play Your Hands Again!

Two User Manuals have been created to show you how to re-play your game hands!  They are located in the Blue Menu above, one for replaying REAL game hands and one for replaying VIRTUAL game hands.

At the end of every game (REAL or VIRTUAL), whose results have been uploaded to the Barrie Bridge CLUB Web Site, you have a number of REPLAY THE HAND AGAIN options:

  1. You can re-play any of your REAL game hands with full control over what card is played from each north/south/east/west hand.

You can experiment with different leads or playing strategies to see if you can get an extra trick or put your opponents down.

  1. For on-line VIRTUAL games you have three options.  You can replay the hand any way you choose as described in 1 above.

Or you you can replay the hand exactly, card for card, as you played it in your on-line game or any other pairs hands for that matter to learn from them.

Or, you can replay the hand exactly, card for card, as you (or others) played it in your on-line game, and then deviate at any time during the play and take a different line.

  1. You also have the option to download the game file (REAL or VIRTUAL) and import it to a different Bridge Computer Program that allows you to replay the hands.

Welcome to Barrie Bridge


Bridge Club Latest
Hello, good friends of the Barrie Bridge Club. This update is being written October 1, to give you a timeline, and as information changes, you will hear from me again. Your executive has been meeting and going over all the safety precautions necessary to open the club. People volunteered to check double vaccination proofs, ID cards, temperatures, masks, hand sanitizing, table spacing and vigorous cleaning. We thought we would be ready to go by Tuesday, October 5, but that has turned out not to be the case.
For those of you who are wondering why restaurants, hair salons and community clubs are open while we are not – you are right, it is not fair.
Attracting the attention of the Simcoe Muskoka Health Unit to find out if we were fully complying with its standards was a double-edged sword. Everything was fine except the physical distancing, and even our plan of fashioning X-shaped plexiglass dividers on the tables would not be sufficient. A few other bridge clubs in Ontario have, or plan to be, opened soon. We were told that they would be operating illegally.
It looks like, barring a last-minute change of heart from the health unit, that we will have to wait until step 3 is over before we can open our doors.
In the meantime, our club will exist by using the revenues produced from BBO fees. Please continue to support the club while enjoying bridge online. Those who do so will be and are the lifesavers of the Barrie Bridge Club.
Mary Ellen Dale
President, Barrie Bridge Club

No More Masked Bidders Till Further Notice

Hi friends,

After talking with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit and after hearing the continuing surge of the second wave,

your executive has decided to stop our Mask to Mask games until further notice.

We are hopeful that we will be able to restart and widen participation in the new year and as the vaccines are rolled out.

Have a safe and happy [if alone] Holiday season.

John Montgomery, President, Barrie Bridge Club




Sadly, we have had to close our club for an undetermined amount of time.  Apart from missing the in-person game and the fellowship that goes with it, we will be missing the table fees for quite a while.  Donations, online revenue and a limited amount of money in the bank will allow us to survive this pandemic.  While memberships this year are free, we urge you to donate what you can to keep the club afloat until such time as we can joyously reopen.

Technical difficulties prevent us from using e-transfers, so please send your cash or cheque, made out to the Barrie Bridge Club, to either


Betty Macmillan  39 Ferndale Dr. S., Unit 205, Barrie, ON  L4N 5T5


Barrie Bridge Club 18 Alliance Blvd., Unit 3, Barrie, ON  L4M 5A5


Thank you very much, and please stay safe!  We want to see all of you in 2021.
