Where's Waldo coming on Thursday Evenings Starting on January 21st!
A little bit of fun is coming in the new year on Thursday evenings. All players will be handed a numbered ticket at the beginning of the game. Before the last round commences, the Director will draw a winning ticket number. That lucky player will have the opportunity to draw a card from our 53 card deck! The goal is to try to pick the Joker - our WALDO.
The pot will start out at $100 and we will add $5 for every table in play each Thursday night. Who ever draws WALDO will win the pot!
The pot will increase very quickly if we add a table or two to our evening game. Hats off to Roy, our director, who came up with this catchy idea!
BRIDGE UNIVERSITY COMES TO HALIFAX
Halifax Bridge World is pleased to welcome Denny and Jerry Clerkin. Denny and Jerry are bridge professionals from Bloomington, Indiana. Their list of bridge accomplishments is impressive. Nine ACBL National Championships, 100s of Regional wins and together they have more than 47,000 Masterpoints. The Clerkins have travelled the world playing against the best and continue today to compete at the highest levels.
Over a span of 35 years, both Jerry and Dennis have taught individual, pair, and group lessons. Today, they continue to offer lessons, mentoring, and partnering while maintaining their busy tournament schedule. Jerry is also a columnist for the District 11 Midwest Monitor and his sense of humour shines through in his writing.
In their early days playing bridge Mr. Easley Blackwood chose to captain Denny and Jerry in an inter-city match. Yes, that’s the fellow who invented your standard “Ace Asking Bid”! Paul Soloway, one of the greatest bridge players of all time, was their mentor and friend and today they continue to teach and play systems taught to them by Paul.
Bridge lessons from the best – you won`t want to miss this opportunity!
This is our 6th year returning to the fabulous Bermuda Regional at the Princess Southampton. For the Canadians, the weather is always perfect. This event is perfect for Beginners to Experts. You are welcome to join in the fun!
