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.  Benefits awarded to members in good standing include voting privileges and a one time complimentary name tag.  
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.

Waiver of Liability
During the Covid crisis, our Club, like many, had a serious revenue shortage that threatened its very existence. We were able to withstand those extensive losses due to two main factors, first, previous Boards had wisely reserved a ‘rainy day’ contingency fund that allowed us to continue to pay our bills and second, we made serious financial cuts to our operating budget, including Director fees and the Manager’s salary, in order to survive the lean months.

Previously, when we had a strong, steady revenue stream, the Club carried extensive insurance to protect all its volunteers, Directors, teachers and the Club Manager from any personal liability, that might arise in the course of carrying out their duties. The insurance cost over $2,000 a year, significant for a small club. At the fall ‘22 AGM it was proposed and accepted by the Membership that this insurance be cancelled as a financial saving. It was agreed that the actual risks of sustaining personal injury from playing bridge were minimal and that we all could, as responsible adults, accept those risks collectively and individually.It was also decided to include a waiver of responsibility, to protect our staff and volunteers, in the conditions of Membership to reflect the lack of insurance coverage.All present members will be asked to sign the waiver and any new members will be asked to sign on joining. Should any member be unwilling to agree to such a waiver and wish to rescind their membership please notify us of this choice and we will refund their membership fees. 

Our new Waiver of Liability form is attached. Please take the time  to read it carefully.

Longest Day

50/50 Draws for The Longest Day Fundraiser

The Longest Day, an annual fundraising event held to support the fight against Alzheimer’s will celebrate the 10th anniversary of our ACBL partnership with the organization, and our community has raised almost $9 million! (Funds raised in Canada are donated to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.)  The event spans the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice, and recognizes the challenging journey of those living with Alzheimer’s, and their caregivers.
Bridge is uniquely suited for The Longest Day because studies have shown that playing strategic games, like bridge, help keep your brain healthy!
BOTE has always been a loyal supporter of the ACBL Longest Day event.  Our official event this year will be on June 22nd, more information on that later, but during the month of June we will be running a 50/50 draw at every game.  Tickets will be $2 so bring along some spare change when you are playing for a good cause, who knows you might win big!!
