Our Bridge Library is being Revised & Updated
Our Bridge Library is being Revised & Updated

Thanks to our generous donors, the Club, over the years, has been able to build a comprehensive collection of bridge books on a variety of topics, past and present. With the Covid interruptions, all the books, like our cards and tables were left to gather dust.
Now we are back full time, with feather dusters in our back pocket so with the addition of a few new bridge books, it seemed like the time was right to update our Library.
We have installed new shelving in the storage room to increase our shelf space and we will be introducing a new numbering system to make the book access system easier.
We’ve also noticed a few keeners may still have some books out on extended loan, that others maybe are looking for. We promise no overdue fees but we would like them returned in order to set them up in the new system. Now if you’re still reading – these bridge books can take time - just let Rahul or Regina know and we can note it.
We will let you know when the reorganization is complete. But in the meantime if you want to borrow some good bridge literature, please contact Regina.

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.

Your 2022-23 Board of Directors

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