Midland Bridge Club Goes Online

Due to the ongoing pandemic, our in club games are postponed indefinitely until further notice. But don’t fret my fellow Bridgers, we have all your bridge needs covered. ACBL has teamed up with Bridge Base Online (BBO) to offer online virtual clubs. Below is a short but detailed explanation of what’s going on and how it works. Please reach out to Cassandra if you need further assistance.

  1. Games will be held EVERY Monday and Thursday at 1:15pm (13:15) and Wednesday's at 7:15pm (19:15) Please look for this header
    1. VACB217091 (4 digit random assigned #) Pairs, MIDLAND BC 1:15PM Open (the date of game) 7:15PM for Wednesday's game 
    2. Registration is open 2 hours prior to game start (11:15am and 5:15pm)
    3. 21 or 24 boards – 3 boards/round (21 minutes/round, 7 minutes/board); hands are completely random
    4. Black MP’s are awarded, games are ACBL sanctioned; $4 USD per game with an 80% kick back to the club!
    5. Scores will be posted on our club’s website and through your personalized ACBL account after the game.
    6. You do not have to be an ACBL member to play.
    7. If you need a partner, please contact Jeanette Halliday via info posted on the left hand side of the club’s homepage.
    8. ONLY 1 partner out of the partnership needs to register for the game.
  2. Bridge Base Online Info
    1. In order to play with us, you need to create an account with Bridge Base Online.
    2. Once you have done so, please email Cassandra with your username so you will be added to our virtual game list.
    3. Please fill out your convention cards. (see e blast emails or email Cassandra directly for assistance)
    4. Add money to your account ONLY through BBO; it is the safest and offers the best exchange rate. Once you’re logged in, you’ll see BB$ in the upper right hand corner, click here and follow the instructions.
    5. Please ensure you add your ACBL number if you have one as this will directly affect the strats for the game.
    NOTE: Strats are determined by highest MP holdings of the pair, not the average. If you are not an ACBL member, you will automatically be stratified in A despite your partner being a B or C . We have zero control over this.
  3. If you need to update or add your ACBL number, once you’ve logged in, click on ACBL World and you’ll see 3 blue bottoms at the bottom of the screen, click on Update your ACBL number
  4. Once you feel comfortable with the system, navigating and playing AND you’d like to become a substitute for other games, please email Cassandra directly for this information. 
  5. Memberships
    1. To our members that are seasonal or new players interested and have not paid their membership, please e transfer $10 per person to
  6. Miscellaneous
    1. If you are ever having issues with changes not saved, can’t see a tournament etc, please log out then back in. This seems to be a common issue and easily resolved doing the above step.
    2. Once you’re in a game, to call the director, click on the blue box with three lines through it
    3. Please play quickly as rounds/boards are TIMED, (movement is done automatically whether you’ve finished or not), alert your own bids (found in your bidding box), claim when you can and keep all chat until the end of the round.
    4. If you didn’t receive any of the emails, had follow up questions, ideas, concerns etc please email those to Cassandra.

Bridge Club Members!


Due to closures around the city and throughout Simcoe County, we at the Midland Bridge Club are suspending games until further notice, returning when the province essentially reopens.

The Club has been sanitized with lysol wipes/spray and clorox wipes including all bidding boxes, bridgemates, laminated direction cards, chairs, side tables, light fixtures, bathroom/kitchen facets, door handles and all the table cloths laundered on Friday the 13th.

We will continue to monitor and update our members during these precarious times. Again, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to Cassandra (705) 279-0200 or any of the board members.

We would like to thank all our members for understanding and supporting this decision. Stay tuned for further updates and information as they become available!

Reminders to keep everyone safe:
• Wash hands frequently (Tune of Happy Birthday). Soap & water for a minimum of 20 seconds
• Alcohol based sanitizer – 60% alcohol
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow – NOT YOUR HANDS
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth - in general, your whole face.
• Practice social distance...for now!
• If you are sick or not feeling well, PLEASE PLEASE stay at home and CALL your doctor.  DON'T go to emergency or to the doctor's office.

Is Duplicate Bridge For Me?

A MUST-WATCH for everyone.

Google “benefits of playing bridge” and you’ll be surprised at the number of articles published on how this game keeps the mind active and youthful.  In 2000, according to, a professor proved that playing bridge increases the levels of infection fighting T-cells in the blood stream.
