Our Chance to Host a Local Group!
        The Guelph Chinese Canadian Cultural Group would like to play in a tournament with our members on Saturday Sept. 30 at 1:00 pm. They will send 6 pairs to our club and will sit East/West. We need to find 6 pairs to sit North/South. The fee for the day will only be $5.00 and there will be prizes for the winners in each direction!! This is an ACBL sanctioned game and masterpoints are available if you do well. This should be a fun event and we look forward to meeting new bridge players. If you would like to represent our club on Sept. 30 please contact Tom Ramsay ( or 519-265-1767). There will probably be more than 6 pairs who would like to play, so our players will be picked on a first come first served basis. You can register as a pair or a single (we'll find a partner for you).
Fall Instant Matchpoint Game

      The Guelph Bridge Club will be participating in another “Instant Matchpoint Game”. This event will be held at our club, with the same boards being played at clubs all over North America. All section top awards (both directions) will include 1 gold masterpoint with additional masterpoints being 50% red/black. The game will be on Wednesday, October 25 at 1:00 pm. There will be 749er and open sections as long as there are at least 5 tables for each section. There will be an additional $3.00 fee for this event.

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.
