Welcome to Mississauga-Oakville Community Bridge Club
MObridge Newsletter - April 21, 2019

Please show your membership card when you pay cash or purchase a new 10 play card.

Please make sure you are registered and at your table at least 10 minutes before game time.  The great success of our club has resulted in a number of games reaching at or near capacity. The Director requires at least 10 minutes to make sure the room and game movement are set-up i.e. number of sections, Howell vs Mitchell etc. Late arrivals delay the game and impact everyone.

MENTORS NEEDED
We have several players who are asking for your help. They have taken courses, been playing for a while, are keen to get better and need the help of more experienced players to help them put all aspects of the game together. You are not expected to teach them conventions but they would love to learn about your experience with rules vs. guidelines, gamesmanship, partner communication and all those wonderful things you have learned from experience.

If you can help, please get a form from the office or get in touch with Jon Turner.
