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  claude@cmtmc.ca  by  Friday,  June  14th.

The Club

Welcome to the Niagara-on-the-Lake Duplicate Bridge Centre.  We offer a friendly, ACBL santioned game every Tuesday and Friday afternoon at the Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Centre, Anderson Lane.

We welcome all players regardless of experience. 

There is a "chalk talk" every Tuesday beginning at 12:30 pm and the game starts at 1:00 pm.  Registration for the game closes at 12:50 pm.

Cost for regular games is $5.00 for members and $7.00 for non-members.

Membership fees are $20.00 yearly and are due in September.

Special games, charity games, and socials have a slightly increased fee.  See the calendar for details of upcoming games.

 

Registering

It's great that you have decided to register!  Don't forget to register your email address if you want to receive communications from the club.

Charity Games

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.
