Announcements
Silver Linings Week
          In this new event, Virtual Clubs on BBO will award TRIPLE masterpoints in SILVER instead of black during the week of May 25-31 (Monday-Sunday). Entry fees will be $2 extra for the week. For more information, please click here.
Important message for those playing on Bridge Base Online
          BBO has made some changes to their platform, to cope with the huge influx of people playing online. Effectively they have split BBO onto two servers.
Those playing somewhere in the Main Bridge club are on one server and those in Tournaments are on another.
What does this mean ?
* If you are playing in a tournament, you will no longer see a list of online players who are your friends who are playing in the Main Bridge Club
* If you are playing with robots, friends or solitaire (or similar) while waiting for our event to start you will not be automatically taken to your tournament any more
* If you are trying to start a set game with your friends, ask them to click the Casual button before sending them invitations to join your table. If you are in Casual and they are on the main BBO site, they will not receive your invitations.
So it is important for those wanting to play in tournaments that you do the following:
1. stop playing anything elsewhere at least 10 minutes before the tournament starts
2. Click on Competitive to be on the right server. This will ensure you are automatically taken to the tournament
Virtual Games at the Club
          The club will be holding some more BBO virtual tournaments this week. For the schedule, please click here.

Fee is 5 BB$ for each game. To be eligible to play in these games, you need to have played at the Cambridge, Grand River or Guelph clubs in the past year.
If you haven't played on BBO before, browse the site, play with the robots, with friends or just join a table for fun.
For more information on registering to play in these games, please click here. Information on viewing the boards you played is available here.

Friday Afternoon Open Section
          The pairs open section will continue on Friday afternoon as long as there are at least 3 tables. There are no masterpoint restrictions for this section. Until the numbers are consistently over 3 tables we ask you to pre-register to play in this section either by signing at the Club or emailing Pat - pat.fung@sympatico.ca. We will hold the Friday session for an open team game as long as there are 4 pairs. Preregistration is still required.
Wednesday Afternoon 299er section
          There is no longer a need to preregister for the Wednesday afternoon 299 game. We however ask that you come with a partner as we cannot guarantee a partner for the game.
