Welcome to Mississauga-Oakville Community Bridge Club
MOBridge Newsletter - December 9, 2018

We will be introducing a new 0-299 game on Monday night starting on Jan. 7, 2019.  This game will run in parallel with our existing 0-20 newcomers game.  The newcomer game will run per usual with the new 0-299 game being played in another area of the club.  This format has proven very successful on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings.

The winners of the 25th annual Rosemary Stark game were Wu Sun and Braved Yu. Congratulations!

The winner of the November draw for two free plays is David Eddy. Congratulations!

The Red Cross Mobile Food Bank could use your help.  Please bring in your empty egg cartons for repackaging bulk egg donations. The Red Cross delivers food hampers to those less fortunate.  

Please notify the club and/or Director if you have any allergies or medical conditions that you feel we should be aware of.  Our first priority is to create a safe environment for all of our members and guests.

CNTC Team qualifying games will be held this Sunday, December 9, 2018 and Sunday, January 13, 2019.

  • Game Time 12:00 pm
  • Only 4 Person Teams Allowed
  • Stratified Open / 2500 / 1000
  • Points are half red and half black.

Back by popular demand.  0-20 Swiss Teams on Monday, December 17.

The Name Tags have arrived.  Please look for yours on the back wall (posted by first name).  
 
Dates for our January/February lesson sessions are posted on our website.  Again, a reminder that if you recommend someone to take any of our Intro/Beginner Lessons/Courses, you get 2 Free Plays upon their payment.  Rusty Bridge will be offered on Monday evenings for those who have played before and would like a refresher.

Housekeeping

  • Winter will soon be upon us and with the cold weather comes the snow and salt.  We will put down extra runners but we need your help in minimizing the snow and salt that gets tracked into the club.   

The Directors do their best to start and end on time.  With large games, multiple sections and different movements that is not always achievable.  In planning the rest of your day, please allow a buffer of at least 15 minutes after the scheduled end time before planning your next activity.  As always, please plan to be registered and at your seat at least 5 minutes before game time to enable the Director to set up the game and start on time.

A reminder that we are now taking MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS FOR 2019.  This, as usual, covers you from up to and including December 31st, 2019.

Mentoring Program Update

Our Mentoring Program is showing great success.  We are, however, in need of more Mentors. Entry forms (and all pertinent info) is posted at the Club. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Mentoring Coordinator at mentoring.program@mobridge.club for answers.
