What's happening at Halifax Bridge World in October?

We had a great month at Halifax Bridge World. Our Bridge University was a tremendous success! Dennis and Jerry Clerkin put on quite a show. Comments from the players who attended their lectures all had a common theme -- just how clearly they presented the material. We were very fortunate to have two such high calibre players/teachers share their time and knowledge with us.

New lessons have begun, Easybridge continues to thrive, the IMP League is up and running starting this Thursday, October 2. We are still filling up teams, so don't be shy. If you would like to play, Linda will do her best to find you a team.

October is Jane Johnson Club Appreciation Month. Look for CA games that award 100% Sectional black points and the "dusting" of Gold points to be awarded at the Team Games.

It is also Coffee Month at HBW - we certainly appreciate your donations as we serve over 100 pots of coffee each week at the club!

Looking forward to seeing everyone this month at Halifax Bridge World!
