Bridge Club Opening September 1

We are very excited to welcome you back to play bridge at the bridge club starting Wednesday, September 1. We will be offering some bridge games each week both online and in person. The schedule will  be posted on the web site. Currently maximum tables allowed, according to Provincial regulations, is 14, so preregistration may be required. All players must be double vaccinated, have their records checked and sign a liability certificate before playing at the club. You can come to the club on Friday, July 30 from 1:00- 2:00 pm to show your proof of verification to Lyn Stevens or send a photo of your vaccination record to  birteayer@gmail.com

Wearing masks will be mandatory at the PBC bridge. 

See you soon!  Let's play bridge!     Lyn Stevens

Opening PBC Bridge Club

DRAFT # 3

Suggestions for Peterborough Bridge Club Reopening

We will comply with all local Covid-19 mandates regarding safety and procedures related to reopening our club. These health guidelines are continually changing (we are in step 3) and these suggestions will be updated as we progress through the summer and fall months. Currently we are allowed 50% capacity, 14 tables. This has been verified by the Fire Department.

1. Limit the number of tables for each game, dependent on provincial regulations. Our people capacity is 114 - so at 50% we are allowed 57 people in the room.

2. If tables are limited, members may be limited to the number of times they can play. Players may need to register online. They need to arrive at least 20 minutes before game time and will be checked at the door for vaccine verification.

3. Hand sanitizer, available at the entrance to be used by all. Encourage hand washing as well as sanitizing upon entry.

4. A new ventilation system will be installed and thorough cleaning will occur regularly.

5. Snacks, tea, coffee may be available. You are encouraged to bring your own mug to each game.

6. We will continue some virtual games. For example, an open game could run online at same time as a limited game is happening in club

7. Require proof and certification of 2 vaccinations before members are allowed to play.

8. Liability certificate signed before playing at the club.

9. Masks are required currently for indoor gathering.

Peterborough Public Health has been contacted for answers to questions. We will remain in Step 3 until 6 Aug AND 80% have 1 dose of vaccine and 75% have 2 doses of vaccine.

Reminder to Members: 

All members must be vaccinated in order to return to playing bridge at the club. At present half of our members have brought in their vaccine verification. Next week is the final week for Lyn to be at the club so she would like to get as many people as possible to bring in their proof of vaccination. Please send your vaccination notice by email to Birte Ayer at birteayer@gmail.com OR bring your vaccination certificate to the PBC club where Lyn Stevens will meet you on the following days:

Wednesday,  July 28, 10:00 -11:00 am
Friday, July 30, 1:00 - 2:00 pm


A vaccination certificate/disclaimer form (regarding club's liability) must be signed before you actually start playing F2F bridge. This form can be viewed and printed from the PBC Web Site. With a new ventilator system installed and our members showing proof of vaccination, we can finally open our doors as soon as local restrictions on indoor gatherings are lifted.

Thanks, Lyn

   JULY UPDATES   

THE MOVE TOWARDS A RETURN TO FACE-TO-FACE BRIDGE CONTINUES.   WE WILL KEEP THE MEMBERS UPDATED AS WE MOVE FORWARD.  THE BOARD WILL BE MEETING ON WED. JULY 28 AND THE DISCUSSION REGARDING REOPENING WILL BE OUR MAIN PRIORITY.   WE WANT TO BE SURE THAT WHEN WE OPEN WE WILL BE PROPERLY PREPARED TO DO SO.

 FRIDAY LAST WEEK WAS RUN AS AN OPEN GAME AND ATTENDANCE WAS BETTER.  FRIDAY GAMES WILL CONTINUE TO RUN ON A WEEK-TO-WEEK BASIS AS LONG AS THE NUMBERS JUSTIFY THEIR CONTINUANCE.

STARDUST WEEK RUNS MONDAY JULY 26 TO SUNDAY AUGUST 1.    200% REGULAR CLUB RATING MPS - 25% GOLD, 75% BLACK. AS WE HAVE NO OPTION TO OPT OUT,  ALL GAMES (EXCEPT 99ERS) WILL BE $6 IN ORDER TO COVER THE ACBL'S $4/TABLE SURCHARGE.

THE NA PAIRS QUALIFIERS BEGIN THIS MONTH (JUNE) AND CONTINUE THROUGH AUGUST.  WE CAN RUN 2 GAMES PER SESSION PER MONTH.   THE COST OF THE GAMES WILL BE $6.  OUR FIRST QUALIFIERS WILL BE THE MONDAY JUNE 14 OPEN GAME AND THE TUESDAY JUNE 15 LIMITED GAME.  CHECK WEBSITE FOR FUTURE GAMES (BOTH OPEN AND LIMITED).  ALL NAP QUALIFYING GAMES HELD VIRTUALLY WILL AWARD 50% BLACK AND 50% RED MPS AT DOUBLE THE REGULAR MP AWARDS.  

THE 99ERS/NOVICE GAME IS CONTINUING.   PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT THE GAME.  THE TURNOUT HAS BEEN GOOD.  WE  RUN IT SIMULTANEOUSLY WITH THE MONDAY OPEN GAME AS THE OPEN GAME GETS CREDIT FOR THE TABLES IN THE 99ERS GAME AND MASTER POINTS AWARDED ARE INCREASED.  IT STARTS AT 1:00 PM  SO I HAVE TIME TO GET THE OPEN GAME GOING FIRST.  WE CHARGE $4 AND PLAY 18 BOARDS.  TO GIVE ME TIME TO DEAL WITH ISSUES THAT ARISE WITH SIGNING IN,  PLEASE REGISTER ABOUT 1/2 HOUR BEFORE GAME TIME (EARLIER DOESN'T HURT) AND BE ONLINE WHEN GAME STARTS.

EVERYTHING WE DO IS AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE THINGS.  IF ANYONE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY, PLEASE GET IN TOUCH WITH ME OR SOMEONE ON THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS.
