Welcome to BCON!
2E Tremont Drive #5, St. Catharines, ON, Canada, L2T 3B2

Conveniently located off Hwy 406, across from the Pen Centre in St. Catharines Ontario, we are proud to have over 400 members. We are a member owned, and volunteer run club drawing from the entire Niagara Region.

Currently, our club is closed due to Covid 19 restrictions. Our Board of Directors is in regular communications with the Ontario Public Health Board regarding conditions that will allow the Club to re-open. Be assured that the Board is working to have protocols in place, once we get the go ahead from Ontario Public Health. Updates will be posted on the website, as well as sent by email to our members. If you would like to be added to our email list, please click here (you can unsubscribe at any time.)

We look forward to having you visit us at our newly renovated facility once we re-open. Meanwhile, we offer both open and restricted games six days a week through Virtual Clubs on Bridge Base Online. Please see the calendar on your right to find a game. For more information, please contact us.               

                                 

Survey Says… The results are in, and here is what our members have to say about re-opening

The response to the recent survey, to get a feeling of the members expectations and concerns to re-open the club, was beyond our estimates with 187 replies received.  The input from the members, as indicated in the results shown for the 3 questions, will drive the board's plans and concerns. Also included is a sampling of specific concerns voiced by our members. The Board will include any concerns in the re-opening strategy and logistics where appropriate.

The Board of Directors has formed a committee to coordinate the steps and logistics required to make playing at the club a positive experience for all our members. We will inform the club members in due time when we will be able to open the club either at limited capacity or full capacity after distancing requirements have been relaxed.
