Our club qualifying games for the North American Pairs (NAP) will be starting on June 1st, and running throughout the summer. Your Unit will be covering the extra fees associated with hosting these games, so you can play as many as you like at the normal cost of $9 face-to-face or 4 BB$ online. All qualifier games offer 50% red points and 50% black, with double points awarded for online games. Below is the schedule of NAP qualifier games for June, along with partnership contact information. Players who qualify in any of these games, and are paid ACBL members at the time of qualification, will be eligible to compete in the District finals.

As you all know, we will be restarting our face-to-face games with our first team game on Saturday, April 2nd at 12:30 p.m. While the provincial government and Soul Sanctuary have lifted all Covid restrictions, the board has felt it prudent to adopt the policy outlined below regarding participation in our games. This policy will be subject to review at our next meeting, in approximately one month's time. Until then, the following conditions will be in place for all in-person games at Soul Sanctuary:

  • All players must be fully vaccinated and prepared to provide proof of vaccination.
  • Masks, both in the building and at the table, will be fully optional.
  • No coffee or refreshments will be served at the games. Players are welcome to bring in whatever they wish.
  • If players are experiencing any symptoms whatsoever, they are expected to stay home. The director has the right to ask players exhibiting symptoms to leave.
  • Hand sanitizer and extra masks will be available in the club room.

We are doing our best to accommodate the wishes of the majority of our players, while at the same time providing a setting where they will feel relatively safe at our games.

The following is a reminder of our game schedule beginning April 2nd:
