Spring is coming and with it our annual Spring Sectional.  Click here to view the event flyer.

There has been a change to ACBL membership policy that will affect non-members wishing to play in this and other ACBL sanctioned tournaments.  Players are now required to have an ACBL membership number in order to participate.  Players without a number must purchase an ACBL membership in order to get that number (this doesn't affect lapsed memberships as those numbers can still be used).  To that end, the ACBL has introduced 1 month temporary memberships for $10 CDN so that non-members will have a player number to allow them to participate.  This number can be used to play in future events even if the player decides not to renew their membership.  Click here for more information about temporary ACBL memberships.

Players purchasing a temporary membership at this tournament will receive a free game session.  Memberships also include a copy of the ACBL Bulletin.

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 or 204-453-0708.  Here is a list of contact numbers for board members and club directors:
