Welcome to Mississauga-Oakville Community Bridge Club
MObridge Newsletter - July 15, 2018

MObridge has moved into 2ND PLACE in the District and Unit for table count … still good … let’s get’em next month!  What a Club we have!!!

We have a NAP Qualifying Game on Tuesday, July 17th (Flights A, B & C) … no extra fee for MObridge Members.  

We have 2 Seminars this week:  BIDDING PRACTICE FOR NOVICES (0-20 MPs) on Monday, July 16th @ 1:30 pm and MINOR SUIT RELAY on Thursday, July 19th @ 7:15 pm.  You can sign up for these at the Club, phone it in … or send an email to mail@mobridge.club.

Reiterating … We have run very low on our MOBRIDGE PENCILS.  And we had thousands!!!  We had one player bring in approximately 50 (this week) that were in his car.  Perhaps you have some hanging around your car, or at home … if so, can you bring them back?  We want to see how many we get returned before we replace.  When we replace, we will replace with regular pencils, as these little ones we’ve been using are more expensive than the full-sized pencils but because they are so small we fear our Members are not aware of this and just discarding them.  Let’s see how our supply grows by the end of this week.  Go team!!!

Remember our NEW POLICY:  If you are asked to come in and play with out-of-town guests (by one of our Directors) at our Club, you will play for free.

Our website is updated with our October sessions.  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.

At the Club, we know it’s cold for some and hot for others … we ask that you please bring a sweater or jacket with you when attending a game, as we do have to keep the rooms on the cool side, with all the BODY HEAT and the current heat wave.

IF YOU HAVE TO CANCEL YOUR ON-LINE RESERVATION, CANCEL AT LEAST 2 HOURS PRE-GAME TIME.  DIRECTORS MAY NOT CHECK AFTER THE 2 HOUR MARK AND MAY THEN HAVE TO DO SOME SCRAMBLING AT GAME TIME.   THIS CAN HOLD UP GAME START TIME SIGNIFICANTLY AND LEAD TO FRUSTRATED PLAYERS.  

IF YOU ARE PAST THE 2 HOUR MARK, 
PLEASE CALL IN TO CANCEL YOUR RESERVATION.

PLEASE PLAN ON BEING AT YOUR SEAT 5 MINS. BEFORE GAME TIME.  REMEMBER THAT YOUR LATE ARRIVAL 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 AGAIN, PLEASE REMEMBER THAT 
SLOW PLAY AFFECTS THE WHOLE ROOM.

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.

TIDBITS:  Submit your Tidbit to mail@mobridge.club and watch for it here.  A lot of these are coming from your fellow bridge players.  

Discussing played boards can really help players that haven’t played those Boards yet.  Sometimes it’s leading that club (which is an unusual lead) or bidding that slam that can’t be bid …
the list is endless.
