Welcome to Mississauga-Oakville Community Bridge Club
MOBridge Newsletter - September 23, 2018

WE HAVE A SPECIAL EVENT COMING UP ON OCTOBER 13TH!!!  We are holding a special “CELEBRATION GAME” to honour NANCY STRACHAN and MARTIN HUNTER.  As we all know, Nancy & Martin have pretty much retired from Club Directing.  They have, however, let us know that they will come to our aide if need be, and if they are available.  Nancy & Martin, individually, have contributed greatly to the success of MObridge … and they continue to do so in being our “go-to” when we need assistance.  We are having this game in their honour, to recognize their contribution to the Club.  All information on this is posted at the Club, along with a sign-up sheet.  So if you want to attend, please sign-up, as we are limited to 24 tables.  The cost pp is $20 (which covers the game fee and “extras”).

We still have room in our TEAM LEAGUE (October 10th start-up) for teams.  All info is posted at the Club.  You can also view the outline from our Home Page, under the Team League tab.  You can sign up as a team, as a pair or as a single.  Just make sure you put contact info on the sign-up sheets.  Working on the Team League will be Martin Hunter, Jon Turner and Paul Inglis.  If you have any questions, feel free to speak with them, or send an e-mail to the Club … mail@mobridge.club.  You can also go to our Home Page and find info there.

MENTORING PROGRAM   The new Mentoring Program has been developed to promote and enhance the high quality of bridge we have come to enjoy at MO Bridge.  It is an excellent way for members to volunteer to help their club. Get involved as either a mentor or mentee … or as both. The program is for everyone “Any game any time”.  Read the information on our web site or on our Club bulletin board … fill out a registration form and get involved.  Mentoring is also an excellent way for members to do their share of ensuring that MObridge continues as the best full-service bridge club in the Golden Horseshoe.

Remember our NAP FLIGHT “C” FINALS are being held at our Club on October 28th.  Note that this is a 2 Session Event, with the 1st Session starting @ 10:30 am sharp!!!  Please plan on arriving a little early.  The time of the 2nd Session will be dependent on when the 1st Session wraps up, with approx. an hour break.  The cost per pair is $52.00, which is to be paid at the Club on October 28th, and can be paid by cash/cheque only.  Again, congratulations to all who qualified.

Our Classes are starting up soon (October) and are filling up fast … spread the word.

All games this week are just plain ole’ regular games.  

SEMINARS THIS WEEK:  
Sept. 20th     7:00 – 9:00 pm     Jacoby 2NT

Look for sign-up sheets at the Club, along with more detailed information.

We hope, by now, all Members have received their Name Tags.  If you are missing yours, let any Directors know.  We will be placing our next order mid-October.

All you helpers, who help clean up at the end of a game, and make sure your playing area is cleared, the Directors want you to know that it’s appreciated and send you a big THANK YOU!
 

To all our Bridge Friends in recovery … get well soon.
We hope to see you back at the table soon.

REMINDERS …

  • WE CAN’T STRESS ENOUGH HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO BE AT YOUR SEAT 5 MINUTES BEFORE  GAME TIME.  FOR GAME SET-UP AND STARTING ON TIME, IT IS CRUCIAL. YOUR LATE ARRIVAL AFFECTS THE WHOLE ROOM.  ALSO KNOW THAT THERE ARE MOVEMENTS THAT CANNOT BE CHANGED IF YOU ARRIVE LATE.
  • AND PLEASE REMEMBER THAT SLOW PLAY AFFECTS THE WHOLE ROOM.
  • PLEASE KEEP YOUR PLAYED BOARDS ON YOUR SIDE TABLE.  THIS ALLOWS THE RECEIVING TABLE TO COLLECT THEM WITHOUT INTERRUPTION OF YOUR PLAY, SHOULD YOU BE RUNNING BEHIND.   AND PLAYERS SHOULD NOT BE INTERRUPTING PLAY TO ASK FOR BOARDS … IF THE ROUND IS CALLED AND YOU NEED BOARDS WHICH ARE NOT ACCESSIBLE, PLEASE CALL THE DIRECTOR.
  • Our website is updated with our October sessions (which is now just around the corner).  January/February sessions will be posted in September or thereabouts.  Again, a reminder that if you recommend someone take any of our Intro/Beginner Lessons/Courses, you get 2 Free Plays upon their payment.
  • Remember that the corner table by the front door does tend to be cooler.  We have players that love this and other players, not so much.   
  • Please notice our “POP CAN TAB” container at the Club.  If you can, please remove your TAB before placing your can in the Recycle Bin.  The collection of these tabs goes towards wheelchair purchases … and apparently many have been purchased this way.  A little goes a long way.
