Upcoming Events
Bridge for Brains - Friday 6th May 1.00pm -
Once again the Canberra Bridge Club is supporting the Bridge for Brains Research Challenge for Neurological Research. The session will be held during the normal Friday afternoon session and red Masterpoints will be on offer as well as the usual CBC green points. Each player will also receive a hand commentary prepared by Ron Klinger. Normal table money fees apply, but players are encouraged to make a donation on the day, no matter how small, to this worthy cause.

Mentoring Month is MAY!
The club is holding its mentoring program again during May. The program partners improving players with an advanced player for a couple of games. The emphasis is to help the improving player but it is designed to be for both players.

Players wanting to participate either as a mentor or a mentee should fill out a form available in the Barry Turner room under the TV.

The mentor will play the mentee’s “bridge system” and generally the mentee pays the mentor’s table money.

Please return your completed form to the box under the TV. Please note the closing date for entries is Friday 22 April. Players will be contacted with their individual arrangements.

If you have any questions please contact Janet Kahler on 6239 7268 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
