Longest Day – Alzheimer’s Charity Event - June 21 - 2:30 p.m.

Raffle Tickets on Sale   3/$5 or 7/$10

Draw on June 21


Mobridge will run a single game event in support of the Canadian Alzheimer’s Society on Friday June 21.   Unfortunately, the ACBL has changed their position on an interclub event.  All game proceeds will be donated and there will be extra points awarded.  

In addition, we will be running a fundraising raffle starting on June 3 with all proceeds going to the Canadian Alzheimer’s Society.  Yana Headford and Ed Clark have each generously donated one of their paintings as one of the raffle prizes.  Please consider donating a prize for this event.  Please email the club if you have any questions or if you would like to make a donation. Thank you for your support.

We are looking for volunteers to help sell raffle tickets before each game.  If you would like to help, please let the Director know when you arrive.  (Earlier the better.)

Letter from the Board of Directors

Dear Host,

The Hosting program was introduced in February as a new benefit for our members, new players and visitors. It enables everyone to have a partner for any game that is ‘hosted’.

In this case, the benefit is provided by our members to their fellow members.  You are one of our membership who has stepped up to offer your time as a host at one of our games during the last four months – you are a major part of our success with this program.

On behalf of the Board and the Club membership, we thank you for your contribution!  We hope you enjoyed the opportunity to meet new friends and contribute to making MOBridge the best club in the GTA!


Paul Inglis
Board President

“Shuffle and Play”

Summertime is approaching and our club would like you to spend some quality time with us!

Our "Shuffle and Play" session, which started on 22 May, is taking place on Wednesday afternoons, 1:30 to 3:30, for the duration of the summer, assuming we have enough players.
This session is intended for all novices who would like to play in a non-competitive environment and/or would like to practice what you have learned in your lessons. You don't even need a partner. No Bridgemate, no scoring, no Masterpoints, just fun and maybe a little ice cream on the side! Our friendly supervisors will be there to help you. The cost is $8 for members, $10 for non-members.

This is the perfect opportunity to improve your game without any stress.

So, bring a friend, relax and enjoy our wonderful club.

MENTORS NEEDED
We have several players who are asking for your help.  They have taken courses, been playing for a while, are keen to get better and need the help of more experienced players to help them put all aspects of the game together.  You are not expected to teach them conventions but they would love to learn about your experience with rules vs. guidelines, gamesmanship, partner communication and all those wonderful things you have learned from experience.

If you can help please get a form from the office or get in touch with Jon Turner.
