If you wish to play in the Wednesday 0-199 section you must register in advance with Rob MacKinnon (rmackinnonguelph@gmail.com). If fewer than 6 pairs have registered by Tuesday evening, the section will be cancelled and Rob will contact any registered players to advise them that there will be no 199 section.
BBO Online Game Schedule
        The Guelph Bridge Club and Grand River Bridge Club have expanded the pool for their games to include London and Owen Sound. This is an effort to keep online games vibrant now that people have returned to live play.
On BBO, you do not need to go to the "All Clubs" section of Virtual clubs, although these games will also be listed there. Players from these pooled clubs, we will also see these games listed in Virtual Clubs/ACBL-North America, which is the button at the top of the page that most people use.
GBC and GRBC know that there is a large group of bridge players who continue to enjoy playing online and we do not want them to drift to the bigger games south of the border. Hopefully the attached calendar of our online offerings will encourage people to choose to support local games, so we can grow our online table counts to a healthy level.
The current schedule of online games is available here.

There is also a birthday cake and a picture of birthday people for the newsletter. Please mark your calendar and we look forward to seeing all the birthday people on the second Saturday of each month. Please contact Sharon Barry for more information
