Irish Premiere of Aces and Knaves - Fundraiser fot Irish Junior Bridge

Hi All,
We need your help in promoting a fundraising venture for Irish junior bridge, please.
We are delighted to tell you that the CBAI has secured rights to stream the Irish premiere of a great film about bridge, called “Aces & Knaves”, which will be available for viewing online for ten days from Tuesday 1 June (via a link on the CBAI website and elsewhere).
The film has already been shown in North America, and has been very well received. The IMDB review website describes it as “a documentary about mental gymnastics, competition, and cheating in bridge – the most complex game ever invented by the human mind.” Lots of very well-known bridge players feature, and Irish viewers can keep an eye out for an appearance from our junior team on one of their trips to the US. The cost of the stream is $12.50 (approximately €10), of which half (after a small platform charge) will go directly to Irish junior bridge, so in addition to spending an enjoyable hour or so, you’ll be supporting the future of Irish bridge at a time when other fundraising opportunities are limited.
In addition, anyone who purchases a ticket to watch the film will also be entitled to attend an exclusive Zoom seminar being held in conjunction with the Grand Master Bridge Congress, on Saturday 6 June at 8 pm, featuring Ireland’s top player, Tom Hanlon, the NPC of the Irish Open team, Grainne Barton, Irish junior international, John Connolly, and our International Tournament Director, Fearghal O’Boyle, in conversation with Thomas MacCormac on the current trends in Irish and international bridge.
See the CBAI website from next Sunday for more details of both these events.
 
You’ll find links to a couple of short trailers on the film that you can send on below:

We will post the Zoom link for the GMB seminar at a later stage.

Best wishes,
