DIRECTOR UPDATE WORKSHP
Director Update Workshop June 23rd 2019 Bridge Centre of Niagara 9:00 am to 4:30 pm As a results of major changes in the Laws of Duplicate Bridge in September 2017, the Board of Directors of Unit 255 has decided to provide all the directors within our Unit with a workshop update. We have contracted Martin Hunter, an ACBL Tournament Director, who has recently delivered this update on the Laws to the directors of Unit 166. Due to Martin’s busy schedule, the course will be conducted on Sunday June 23, 2019. We will start the course at 9:00 am sharp since Martin has another engagement. The workshop will run from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm. Lunch will be provided around 12:00 noon. The Unit is capturing all the costs associated with this important workshop. The topics covered will include: Comparable Calls and their application to Calls out of Rotation and Insufficient bids, Lead Restrictions, The new Convention Charts, Dummy’s Rights and Limitations and some more. Martin has some exercises for us to demonstrate what a comparable call would be or not. June 23 will be the only time where the Unit will offer this workshop. All directors are strongly encouraged to participate in order to be able to apply the new Laws correctly. In order to ensure we make enough copies of the workshop material everyone must register by sending an email to email@example.com by Friday, June 14th.

The ACBL requires clubs that wish to hold charity games to hold one Charity Game to benefit the ACBL Charity, then the club is able to run other games to benefit local charities as it wishes. Charity games offer more Masterpoints than ordinary games and are usually offered at no extra cost to club members. Members were canvassed for suggestions during October and voted to have the proceeds donated to Niagara-on-the-Lake Palliative Care in 2018.
We strive to have a "play nice" atmosphere at our club.
Players are encouraged to respect their partners and opponents at all times, comments on bidding or play can wait until after the game.
If you feel that any player is not acting according to this policy, call the director!!
