Announcements
You're invited!  Don't miss the Christmas Party on Saturday Nov. 28!
        The Guelph Bridge Club is pleased to announce that we will be holding our annual Christmas party on Saturday Nov. 28.  Due to Covid, the game will be online.  There won't be a lunch, but there will be prizes and extra masterpoints if you do well.  We'll follow the same format as we used for the Ray Millie pairs on Oct 3rd.  Here are the details:
- there will be 3 flights - open, 0-499 and 0-99
- there will be 2 sessions. Single session entries welcome.
- as Nov. 28 is part of ACBL's Club Championship week, extra masterpoints will be available.
- the entry fee will be $5.00, same as our regular games.
- we will announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall winners in each flight.  The director will add the scores of the 2 sessions manually to determine the final standings (unfortunately ACBL software can't do this for virtual club games).  1st, 2nd and 3rd place overall winners will receive LCBO gift certificates.  You must play in both sessions to qualify for a prize.
- game times will be staggered to help the director:
Open games are at 10:00 AM and 2:15 PM
The 499 games are at 9:45 AM and 2:00 PM
The 99 games are at 9:30 AM and 1:45 PM
- all players must register on BBO for each session as they do for regular club games. Please try to register 30 minutes before game time. This will help the director.
We look forward to seeing you all on Nov. 28th and starting the holiday season with a great party.

Convention Card on BBO

There are some online help sessions for playing on BBO. For the schedule and links to the zoom sessions, please click here.
Changes in Stratification of virtual games
          Pairs are now stratified by average masterpoints rather than the masterpoints of the person with the higher number. Also, when the strats are not equal, strat C will have the largest number of pairs instead of strat A.
Fall Workshops at the Club
          Sheila McLaren and Tom Ramsay will be offering some workshops at the club, starting in September. Due to COVID restrictions, there is a limited number of participants allowed in each workshop. Each participant will sit in a chair that is "socially distanced", each must wear a mask, and sanitize hands upon entering the club. The cost for each workshop is $10 by e-transfer to GBCrevenue@gmail.com or by cheque to The Guelph Bridge Club. For details about the workshops or to register for a workshop, please click here.
