Welcome to Bridge On The Edge

Web Site

Welcome to Bridge on the Edge, located in the Swilers Rugby Club at 100 Crosbie Road in St. John's, NL, Canada.  In 2016 we became a player owned bridge club.  We support a respectful culture, both at the bridge table and in all BOTE communications, for the enjoyment and growth of all members.  Visitors and new members are always welcome.

For a map and further information, see the "Information" menu on the left.

Membership Campaign

The BOTE membership drive kicked off Thursday, March 7th. Renewals are $10 and come with a bonus bridge booklet upon payment (while supplies last). New memberships are $15 and signees will be set up for club name tags.  Member benefits include a subsidized Christmas dinner, special game prices throughout the year, and seasonal treats.  Only paid-up members are eligible to attend the AGM (May 28th).

Committee Members Needed for Longest Day

BOTE has been quite active in its support of the Longest Day program over several years.  The organizers of the 2018 program deserve our appreciation for the excellent activities which were spearheaded by the committee. 

A committee to organize and coordinate our 2019 participation is required.  Any member interested in volunteering to serve on the 2019 committee is asked to advise Judy Crewe at info@bridgeontheedge.ca, any member of the BOTE Board (emails are in the drop down menu of the Information tab on the main website), or our Club Manager, Rahul Chandra at manager@bridgeontheedge.ca.  Hopefully a committee can be formed to continue this important venture.

Call for Nominations to the Board

The third BOTE AGM will be held at the Swilers Club on May 28th at 10:30 am.  A Nominating Committee (Wanda Lundrigan, Gwenda Jablonski) will seek nominations for the Administrative Board of Directors.  We are inviting all members to consider themselves for nomination to the Board.  Positions available are: President, Vice-president, Treasurer, Secretary, and 3 members at large.  Some main functions of a Board member are to oversee the direction and management of the club, to lead specific projects and committees, and to ensure solid financial management of the budget.  The BOTE Board of Directors is an active board that makes a difference to the development and enjoyment of bridge in our community.  For further details on the roles and responsibilities of the Administrative Board, please check out the Constitution - Revised 2018-05-31.pdf Those who are elected to the Board will serve a one year term and may stand for re-election at the next Annual General Meeting.  Members may stand for election for more than one position, but may only serve in one.  The newly elected Board will be key to ensuring continued success for the club.  Nominations should be submitted to the Nominations Committee at nomination@bridgeontheedge.ca
