Zero Tolerance

The Charlottetown Club operates under the ACBL Zero Tolerance Policy.
Directors do remind the members/players of this policy at the start of each session.

ACBL "Play Nice"

 

PLEASE REMEMBER...in the words of our late friend Karl Hicks:

"YOUR PARTNER DID NOT COME HERE TODAY TO RUIN YOUR GAME.  SO, IF THEY DO SOMETHING THAT YOU CONSIDER HORRIBLE OR INFERIOR AT BEST, SAY NOTHING.

FIRST, UPON REFLECTION, YOU MAY BE WRONG.

SECOND, THERE MAY HAVE BEEN SOMETHING THAT YOU COULD HAVE DONE IN THE BIDDING OR PLAY TO HELP YOUR PARTNER MAKE THE CORRECT DECISION.

FINALLY, YOU ARE GOING TO DO SOMETHING EQUALLY HORRIBLE AND YOU DON'T WANT IT BROUGHT UP!

SO, BE NICE TO YOUR PARTNER AND YOUR OPPONENTS, AND EVERYONE WILL HAVE AN ENJOYABLE GAME."

 

Club Notices

Updated April 28, 2022

The bridge club will be ready to host our first game at the Jack Blanchard Centre (JBC) starting May 3 at 1:00 pm.  The JBC is located at 7 Pond Street next to Holy Redeemer church.

Updated February 1, 2022

The club will reopen for our regularly scheduled bridge games starting February 8. The club will follow all government guidelines with respect to Covid-19 as outlined in the lessening of restrictions that came into effect yesterday.  The wearing of face masks is mandatory upon entering the club and until leaving. As well, proof of double vaccination is required and the club highly recommends all players receive a Covid-19 booster when they are able

February 2, 2022 - Notice from the Club President

"...I am disappointed to have to tell you that the current iteration of the Charlottetown Duplicate Bridge Club must come to an end effective April 30 2022.  On this date, we will exit the premises at 92 Capital Drive, Unit #6. The closure of the club caused by Covid-19 was the final straw that made our present location unaffordable. In the future, when the present health conditions are further relaxed, we will hold a special general meeting to explain the Executives’ actions regarding this decision and our proposed future plan for the club.  In the interim, I would hope to see you playing bridge at the club."
