ACBL Canadian Bridge Fedaration


Future Stars Sectional this weekend!!! (Oct. 22-23): The Future Stars Sectional is for non-life masters with 500 or fewer masterpoints.

It's being held at the Vancouver Bridge Center. Plan on taking part!.

Here's the flyer. A lunch is available ($6) Saturday and Sunday (but must be ordered at morning registration).
(And, if you need a partner, the Partnership Desk is now open.)

Click here for tips on how to use the Partnership Desk.

Monthly Unit Game: Please note: the November MUG (Pairs) is being held Saturday, Oct. 29th (to avoid a conflict with the Round Up Sectional November 4-6).

Next Matchpointer: The next Matchpointer will be published in time for the Trophy Sectional in January. If you want to contribute an article, or have a suggestion about items that might be included, please contact our Matchpointer Editor, Nick Stock.

More Tournaments for Non-Life Masters!:In addition to our own Future Stars Tournament, October has all sorts of opportunities for players who are not yet life masters. There's a sectional in Seattle, Sequim and Victoria (and even Anchorage, if you're willing to travel a bit).
Enjoy high level bridge, with lots of masterpoints, playing with your peers!)

IMP League: Registration is already open for the B and C leagues (and lots of teams have been signing up). If you're interested, don't delay. Games are starting soon. Here's information about the league and the schedule.

Registration for the A/X league will be opened soon. Team captains from last year: check with your team mates and see about signing up against this year. For those who didn't play last year: you missed out on a lot of fun and some great bridge (so seriously consider taking part this year!)

If you want to sign up a team for B and C or A/X, contact Peter Morse.

Matchpointer: Here is the on-line version of the Fall Matchpointer.

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.
