International Fund : Fund Raising Initiative PDF Print E-mail
The CBF is asking all top level Canadian bridge players to make themselves available for auction during some or all of the ACBL Wide International Fund games (3 a year) and Canada Wide Olympiad Fund Games (2 a year).  The idea is that a club could auction a top player off to play with the highest bidder during one or more of these games.   The proceeds raised from the auction will be sent to the Canadian Bridge Federation International Fund.  Each player taking part will receive a credit of 10% of the funds raised in their auction.  The credited funds will be paid out to the individual player when that person qualifies to represent Canada in a WBF World Championship event.  Talk to your local bridge club about scheduling such an event in 2010.

This Fund Raising initiative will help raise much needed funds for the CBF International Fund and also get our top players directly involved with the raising of funds.   For more information contact the CBF Executive Assistant. Upcoming games are:

Thursday, October 21, 2010 (evening)

Non-playing Captains List PDF Print E-mail
In 2008 the CBF established a list of potential non-playing captains for our open, women’s and senior teams competing in the various World Championships.  The purpose of the NPC list is to assist teams in selecting their NPC in a timely fashion, in order to maximize the team’s preparation time for the championships.  The list, which is updated annually, includes CBF members in good standing that have adequate international experience, either a player or a NPC, who have expressed interest in performing the NPC role, and have been approved by the CBF Board of Directors.

If you are interested in being an approved NPC, please send your name, contact information and a brief description of your international experience, to Janice Anderson at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  The deadline for submitting an expression of interest is January 15, each year.
