2018 MObridge Membership Renewals

Beginning on November 1, we will be accepting membership renewals for 2018 (renewed memberships will be valid until December 31, 2018).

We will be raising the annual membership cost to $40 this year and expanding our membership benefits:

  • MObridge will be absorbing all ACBL extra fees in 2018 for our members (no more extra charges!!!)
  • As a paid member, you are entitled to elect your Board of Directors and approve any bylaw changes at our Annual General Meeting
  • Members are entitled to reduced game fees of $8 per game or a pre-paid card of 10 games for $75
  • Members are entitled to reduced fees for all Courses and Seminars.

We are hoping to spread the renewal workload over several months to avoid backlogs and congestion in early January.To encourage everyone to do their renewals early, there will be a draw for 2 free games from all those who renew in November and December. 

 
 
Welcome to Mississauga-Oakville Community Bridge Club
This week @ MObridge

Rosemary Stark NLM Award
Congratulations to  John Weber and Randi Grant, winners of the 2017 Rosemary Stark NLM Award Game!!


"The Rosemary Stark Non Life Master Trophy hangs on the wall of the teaching room and is meant to be a goal for the students to achieve on their way to becoming a Life Master. I am very pleased to say that the management are going to keep up the 21 year tradition of awarding the trophy to the pair who are the overall winners of the Special Non Life Masters game. After Rosemary died in 1992, I approached John Rayner and told him I would like to donate a trophy in Rosemary' s name as a way of thanking him and the club for giving her many hours of pleasure playing bridge with her friends at his bridge club on the South Service Road.. Since she had not attained the rank of Life Master before she died, he suggested the trophy should be for Non Life Masters. I agreed and so the event was born. The first game for the trophy was played in 1993. In addition to their names and the year being inscribed on the trophy, they each receive an individual "Keeper Trophy" that they can put in a prominent place in their home. Presently there are 46 different names on the trophy because one year there was a tie for overall winners. No one has won the trophy twice. Many of the names belong to people who are still playing at our club".........Jack Stark

Winner!!
Congratulations Karen Blackledge -  winner of 2 Free Plays for November Draw.

Elimination of STOP Card

The ACBL has decided to eliminate the STOP card from the bidding box as of the end of the year. We will be removing the cards at that time. Regardless of the elimination of this card, you must study your hand for close to a 10 second count after a jump bid. The intention of this rule is so as not to alert your partner of a weak hand with a quick pass. Ask any director if you need further information on this.
