Location update - May 4

The members of the executive have looked at several possible locations (a couple of them suggested by club members - thank you), but nothing has seemed suitable.  The executive has agreed to put the search on hold until after the summer.

I thought you might like to know how other local clubs are faring in their endeavours to return to F2F bridge. Cobourg has averaged nearly 6 tables per game over the last six games; Peterborough has averaged just over 5 tables per game over the last six games; Kingston has averaged a little over 4 tables per game for the last eight games.

As you can see, players in those areas are still hesitant to commit to playing F2F. We would have difficulty meeting expenses if our table counts mirrored those above.

By comparison, online games at Peterborough/Cobourg/Belleville and Kingston continue to do reasonably well, some games having greater attendance than others. Peterborough's Monday online game has averaged slightly over 8 tables per game for the last five sessions. Kingston's most popular games, Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning, have averaged slightly over 13 tables per game.

The rain we have been experiencing the last couple of days will certainly be good for our lawns and gardens. Hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable summer.

Cobourg F2F - Update March 6

UPDATE: Cobourg is re-opening F2F on Wednesday, March 16 at 1:00 p.m.  Session fee is $6.00.  Once per month, the game will be moved to Friday to accommodate the blood donor clinic.  If you are interested in attending, contact Debbie Bennett to confirm which day the club will be open: 416-266-7285.

Gerry Browning passed away on the morning of May 3. He had suffered a stroke on April 23 and, while developments seemed encouraging, things took a different turn over this past weekend and into Monday. His daughter Tanis wrote: "He was not alone. His last hours were peaceful. We held his hand to gentle music and a meditation that talked about love enfolding his spirit and moving him into the calm of unconditional love. It reminded him that he will always be alive in the hearts of his loved ones." Our deepest condolences to Ruth and their children Tanis, Mark, Marla, and Jodi and to all their families. For those of you who may not have known him, Gerry was a tournament director as well as our club's manager, responsible for creating the vibrant club we have. You will be greatly missed, Gerry. Rest in Peace.
