Bridge Manitoba, Ambassador Bridge Club, and Lorraine's Bridge Club have begun running ACBL-sanctioned games on BBO using Virtual Clubs. Please support our clubs during these times by participating in these games, and enjoy playing with all of those people you've been playing with for years!  The cost per game is 3 BBO dollars and you will earn masterpoints as though playing at a regular club game. 

For information on joining these games, please click here. For addition assistance, email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

Game time is 12 p.m. PLEASE REGISTER BEFORE 11:00 if possible so that the director has time to adjust the movement, determine if there is a half-table, etc.


As events have unfolded in the COVID-19 pandemic, holding live bridge games has become impossible for health & legal reasons.  Since a timeline to any resolution of the current situation is unavailable, the Unit 181 board has suspended all games going forward until some resolution is in sight.  Accordingly, Learn How to Play Bridge scheduled for April 4 and the Spring Regional slated for the end of April are both cancelled along with all club games.  We will be updating the membership by email and webpage if there is a major change, monthly if not.

We will no longer have a phone line ringing into the facility at Soul Sanctuary however there will still be the ability to leave messages by calling 204-231-6047.  Here is a list of contact numbers for board members and club directors:

Unit 181 of ACBL has decided to suspend all bridge games at Soul Sanctuary immediately for a minimum of two weeks due to the threat posed by the Coronavirus.

For those of you who think this is an overreaction to the situation unfolding we hope and pray you are correct.

Logic would suggest the virus is here and will spread as it has in every other country it has shown up in.

We probably cannot stop the spread but we can dampen its effects by taking all necessary steps to prevent the spread.

The bridge community consists of mostly individuals who are most at risk to the Coronavirus.

The bridge games will be resumed when conditions on the ground indicate the threat subsiding.

The Unit web site will keep you updated.
