Congratulations to Valerie Brisco and Marlene Dexter on their triumphant win in the Bermuda Gold Rush pairs! This was Valerie and Marlene's first time at the magnificent Bermuda Regional and they certainly left their mark - specifically on the Gold Rush trophy! Well done ladies - you made us all very proud.
Fifty six of us are headed to Bermuda tomorrow morning - no storm to delay our flights and we are very thankful! The Regional starts Saturday evening with a Charity Open Pairs game for all, and getting dressed up is encouraged - it is Bermuda! After that, you can tell the Canadians: we are in shorts, swimming in the ocean, frolicking by the pool and generally seeing everything we can about this wonderful island. We shall keep you posted with pictures, stories of great hands and of course, stories of winning bridge games! Keep the home fires burning :)

Apparently it is a blizzard! Our morning Easybridge was the first to be cancelled and the rest are falling quickly. The road conditions are terrible, more snow to come and the winds are just making it all worse. Halifax Bridge World will be closed for this evening's Open Pairs game. With luck, and some shovelling I am sure, we will be open for the Thursday afternoon's 0 - 750 Stratified Pairs game. 12 noon for the mini-lesson and 12:30 for the game.
Please note that Shuffle n' Play for Thursday morning, January 23rd will be cancelled - please feel free to join us Thursday evening at 6pm for Easybridge instead.
