Thank you to all who represented Mobridge at the interclub challenge.  The playing site, the format and the food was really well done.  A great time was had by all with the host site the Bridge Centre of Niagara winning the trophy.

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.
