Registrations coming in at a steady pace as of September 21.  Odd, um, how this is happening on that date cheeky.

Our location can handle up to 20 tables, no more. For the I/N Sectional (Nov 3/4) we need you to consider pre-registering. The flyer for the tournament is located here. Please proceed to our contact page (see here) and let us know your names and game(s) you will be playing.

Avoid disappointment and pre-register early. Thanks ...


There are two ways we communicate with players and the Ottawa bridge community:

The first way involves our sending out information to our members. Membership is free and one can sign up by clicking here. The code you use is m3mb3r. There is no charge.

The second way uses a more general list and sends information out to the greater bridge community.To join this more general list, please proceed to our contact page located here and let us know. Please mention when you contact us that you wish to receive these emails. If you end up on both lists, you may get two emails about the same thing.

Our suggestion is to join The Bridge Connection (no charge).

Swiss team game(s) in October

October is the Jane Johnson Club Appreciation month with some gold points available when running a team game. The 0-1000 game on October 12 or 26 (to be decided) will be a Swiss team event.

Once the date is firmed up, the calendar will be changed. Please note the start time the day of that game will be 8:45am rather than 9am. There is no way we could get through a whole game (at least 20 boards) if we were to start at the regular time.

Registration is open. Please send us a list of your team members and one email/phone number using the club contact page available here.


We have put together a page of tips for using this site ... new visitors  are encouraged to check here before starting. Seasoned veterans on using this site are wise to check this same location often.
