Percy was a true gentleman, a fine bridge player and undoubtedly one of the best dressed gentlemen at the club. He had a varied and very successful career and eventually retired and settled on a farm in the Carlisle area. ..........

BCON F2F Game Safety Protocol Update
..... see less

With the relaxing of mask requirements announced by the Province and being implemented today, many of you may be asking what is the present position of the BCON board?

For guidance we are taking input from you our members and the guidance of the local Niagara Health authorities.  Generally, our members fall into the higher risk category, so we are being very cautious in relaxing our mask and vaccination rules.

For the present time we will continue to ask all players to confirm their vaccination status if requested by either a director or a person at the front door who represents the BCON board. ..........
