2023 BOTE Membership Renewal
2023 BOTE Membership Renewal

As the new year rolls in, it's once again time for all interested players to renew their BOTE
membership for 2023. Even though the past few years have been challenging from a financial
perspective, the Board has decided to keep the Annual Membership Fee at $25.00, as it has been for the past two years.
The Membership Fee provides a valuable source of revenue during these struggling times. More importantly, it confirms to the Club and the Board that our members remain interested in Duplicate Bridge and are committed to keeping our organization alive and well in St John's.
Fees may be paid by cheque or cash at any event at BOTE. Fees can also be sent by e-transfer
to (use Swilers as the answer to the security question). Cheques can
also be mailed to Treasurer, 5 Birmingham St., St. John's, NL , A1E 5C6.
Specific receipts will be provided to those who request same.
In addition to the regular $25 fee, any member who wishes to include an extra donation in the way of a ‘well wishes’ contribution to the Club can do so. It will be gratefully accepted and put towards lowering our yearly expenses and meeting our break-even goals.
Thank you for your ongoing support to Bridge on the Edge.


Please remember that Bridge on the Edge is a scent-free bridge club. We have several members who are severely allergic to scent.

Welcome to Bridge On The Edge

February Flying By


Wow, the days are certainly lengthening out now, great to think spring is not too far round the corner. . .

Just a quick reminder of a few exciting things happening in February at Bridge on the Edge. . .  This month we have extra points available, not just black but silver ones as well!  On 13th and 16th we are taking part in an event called Sectional Tournaments at Clubs , STaC, these are held concurrently District wide so we will be competing against our compadres throughout District 1. These events award extra, silver points. Let’s see how we STaC up against the competition!

Then we have a couple of Club championships, again awarding extra points, black this time,  our pairs events is on 20th and our team event on the 23rd. So call your favourite partner or put your name on our partnership desk on our website and sign-up!

Just a quick note about our partnership desk, this is where you can find a partner for a game if you do not have one. This is how you do it. . .You log onto our website using the  link, your member name and password. Then you select the event for which you need a partner and press the PR (partner required) box. Your name is then posted with the event online and anyone else looking for that event has your contact information available and can call to see if you would like to play.  It’s a great way to get a game with new people. Give it a try, it really works.

Check your inbox in the next couple of days for an important message about our new waiver. More info coming soon.

Our regular mini lesson and Supervised play is continuing on Monday mornings, thanks again to Deirdre and Tom for organizing. And don’t forget our weekly online game is at 6:25pm on BBO on Tuesdays for our home buddies, out of towners and of course anyone else who wants to connect online.

Finally a big shout out to everyone who keeps our our club working and being such a special place for duplicate bridge in St. John’s thank you all!

See you at the table
