New website for Island Bridge Club

Roy Stefaniec has a new website, bridgewebs.com/island, functional but still a work in progress. He thus joins the other Victoria clubs in using the bridgewebs platform.

Note also that there will be no bridge at St. Aidan’s Church on Monday June 10 and Thursday June 13 as Roy will be working in Penticton for the week. There will be a game on Monday June 17 and Island Bridge Club’s schedule will remain the same thereafter till August.

Starting Thursday August 1, there will be pairs games on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons starting at 12:15 pm and on Fridays in the morning at 9:30 am. The pairs game on Thursday will also feature a NLM section for those with fewer than 500 points and a D-light section for those new to duplicate with fewer than 50 points.

Masterpoint Milestones updated monthly

Perhaps some of you have read Paul Linxwiler’s column on masterpoint ranks in the April Bridge Bulletin.

I totally share his conclusion. As he aptly puts it, “the beauty of our game – and the difficulty in becoming proficient at it – demands that we celebrate these milestones”.

Every month, new Unit 431 members who attain new masterpoint ranks, from Junior to Platinum and beyond, are celebrated on our Masterpoint Milestones page. Have a look and see how your friends are doing.
