Barrie Bridge Club News

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
A MESSAGE FROM OUR NEW PRESIDENT RAY GUOLLA

 Healthy New Year

As I was sorting cards, my RHO quipped, aren’t you too old to be president? 
The remark startled me, I undervalued my hand and put the green card on the table.

He was right of course; these eyes have seen ten decades! Yet my recent ultra sound came back with no change and blood work and other test results were excellent for someone my age. 

I looked around the room and realized that many players are being challenged by health concerns. Arthritis, X-rays, MRIs, radiation, chemo, the list goes on.
The thought suddenly came to me that everyone needs help and that at this club we should be working together in harmony and transparency, as a team.
The director was suddenly at my table saying ‘You have 5 options!’ I had led out of turn! Hadn’t heard those words for over 24 months!

As everyone knows our club was closed, opened, closed, reopened, then closed again! I waited until I had my three shots along with everyone else, then I enjoyed the face to face second opening. We decorated the Christmas tree, and undecorated it. The 2021 Christmas party was a happy taste of normal.

Back at the table I was down one again, the second time this afternoon. If looks could kill!

Our club survived 2020, and 2021 with several shots of its own. Donations, rental rebates and the many members who continued to play in our club games on BBO were the boosters we needed. But the biggest shot in the arm was because of Joffre, a true David and Goliath story. He took on the CRA, using his tenacity and belief in what was right and fair, concluding with an out of court settlement! Bravo!
Yes, our club is surviving, but we face challenges. The December 2021 financial statement is still in the black, with perhaps a few bills still outstanding. No membership fees were required for 2021.

So far membership for 2022 stands at 69, a considerable drop from the past 190. Surely a great loss in revenue.
We continue to monitor variable expenses, delay projects, and if possible, increase membership, and participation in our club games on line. We hope to continue to receive rent subsidies and apply for grants. Your ideas are needed and accepted.

The final results came in! Last place again. 37%, 16th out 16. Never you mind. I’ll be back tomorrow!
Healthy New Year!

A MESSAGE FROM THE PREDIDENT

The executive has voted to close our club until it is safer to meet - hopefully, some time in the spring.   We have done this before and switched our games to online, and we will be doing that again.  I know that playing face-to-face is so much better than the online games, but we still get a chance to compete with our partners and keep up with the club news on the chat line. Please continue to support your club by playing our virtual game.

Stay safe and look for the message in the spring that we are going to reopen to a joyous, welcome-back barbecue.
