The NAP club level qualifying period for this year will end as of August 31.  Several qualifying games will be held before the end of the month to give those who haven't yet qualified a chance to do so.  Please see the website calendar for a listing of these games.  To see if you've already qualified, go to bridgefinesse.com/NAP/ and check for your name under District 2.  This listing may not include recent qualifying games that haven't updated.  Even if you've already qualified, the masterpoint awards in the qualifying games are greater than usual.

We are pleased to report that the unit has secured a new home for our bridge club.  The new location will take effect August 31 1, 2017 and will be located at Soul Sanctuary, 2050 Chevrier Boulevard.  The building is 2 years old with modern washrooms and most importantly—ample parking!  Our space will be located on the 2nd floor and the landlord will be installing a lift at their cost to accommodate our accessibility requirements.  The space will not be exclusively ours however all our current game times will be available to us.

 

The move to the new location is expected to take place at the end of the month and will interrupt some games, most likely all games on Wednesday, August 30.  We will keep you posted once detailed plans for the move are finalized.  Assuming all goes well with the move, Lorraine's BC will be holding a Club Championship on August 31 to open the new location.

The club qualification stage of the North American Pairs (NAP) has begun and will continue through the end of August.  Dates & times for qualifying games will be posted on this site.  There are lots of extra masterpoints available throughout the NAP event, posssibly even a cash subsidy to attend the North American final at the Spring 2018 NABC in Philadelphia.  The District 2 multi-site final for all flights is scheduled for Sunday, November 5, 2017, Winnipeg location & time(s) to be determined.

The Wednesday afternoon invitational game will continue to be offered over the summer months.  If there are not enough players who come out to play in the game, Carolyn Douglas will be pleased to offer a supervised bid and play session with those who are there.  Coming out with a partner is encouraged but not required.  Feel free to contact Carolyn for more information at carolyn@bridgemanitoba org or call her at 204-261-9845.  Start time remains 12:00.  Hope to see you out at a game soon!
