New Event Added at the CBC!
We have added a B/C Stratified, 2 session pairs event on Friday. The event is open to players under 2,500 masterpoints. The stratifications will be 2500/1000/500. It will be a Regionally rated event. Game times are 10am and 3pm. No pre-registration required, just come and play.
George Retek was named as the first recipient of the CBF Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his 33+ years of service to Canadian bridge.
Recognizing that the future of our game depends on attracting young players, more and more effort is being spent to introduce bridge at schools. One indication that such efforts are yielding significant results is the annual School Bridge Day held as part of the Toronto Easter Regional. In 2014, the event, the brainchild of Flo Belford, attracted 440 students!
