Announcements
Swiss Teams Warm-Up Game
          In preparation for the Swiss Teams tournament on March 28th, everyone is invited to play in a Swiss teams warm-up game on Thu. Mar. 18th. The game will consist of four rounds of 6 boards each. The goal is to allow everyone to experience how to register and play in this team format. Why not get a team together and give it a try? If you do not have a partner pair, you can still register and the computer will match up stray pairs at game time or subs can also be used to complete your team. The game is scheduled for Thursday, March 18th at 6:45 pm, 5 BBO$, regular black points. For information on registering for the Swiss teams game, please click here.
Unit 249 Online Championship
          As you know by now, Unit 249 has cancelled our July regional and all our sectional tournaments this year. In their place we are planning a series of unit championship games on BBO to be run by various clubs in our unit. The first one is scheduled for the weekend of March 27-28 and will be run by the Guelph Bridge Club. We'll miss seeing you at Guelph's annual March sectional this year and hope you'll join us online for this event. As this is part of ACBL's Stardust Week, double masterpoints will be awarded, 1/4 gold, 3/4 black. To make this a true unit championship, ACBL will allow any person who is on the Include list of any Unit 249 club to play on BBO at the Guelph club for these 2 days only. Details of the tournament are available here. For information on registering for the Swiss teams event, please click here.

        Join us for another Stardust Week and win gold points online! Stardust Week will take over the Virtual Clubs on Bridge Base Online (BBO) during the week of March 22-28, Monday-Sunday.
