The Barbara Sims Award
As the May 14 AGM date nears its time to be thinking about the Barbara Sims Award. This is an award to honour a valued member of our Bridge community who, like Barbara, has played an essential role in our members’ enjoyment of bridge. The club’s success is built on thousands of volunteer hours – your fellow members working continuously to create and maintain a welcoming environment and a viable enterprise. Without these gifts of time and talent, we would not have a club.  This is a time to say thanks to one of those volunteers among the many who have played a vital role in our success.

Please submit your nominations, with rationale, to the Barbara Sims Committee(c/o cindyosselton@hotmail.com) by April 1, 2019. The winner will be announced at the AGM and his/her name will be placed on the Barbara Sims Award plaque.

Mobridge Host Program – Guaranteed Partners
This program is designed to benefit our members, new players and visitors to find a partner.  

Hosts and players without a partner to arrive at least 15 minutes before game time. Once you have signed up to host and you need to cancel/make a change please send an email to mail@mobridge.club with your request.  

We are still looking for a couple of Hosts for next week and many more for the rest of March.
