Zero Tolerance: The Unit 430 Board is concerned that not all players are aware of their responsibilities (both in terms of ethics in play, and also the importance of respect to partner and other players) and would like all members to read this article by Peter Morse, President of Unit 430, concerning Zero Tolerance.

2015 Mini-Richmond Winners: Congratulations to the 2015 Mini-Richmond winners!

The Mini-Richmond awards were introduced in 2012. The awards recognize CBF members who won the most masterpoints in the calendar year in each of the masterpoint categories, up to and including Diamond Life Master (5,000-7,500 MP). Each category winner in each of the six CBF zones receives a special pin. In addition, overall national winners receive a certificate recognizing their achievement.

The Canada Wide winner was Daniel Korbel! Daniel won 2372.20 masterpoints in 2015.

Here in Unit 430, we have 2 of the Canada wide winners! Congratulations to:

Sidney Yang (0-5)
