News/Announcements:

Mentor-Mentee Game this Saturday - UPDATE: We are still looking for a few more mentors (who can sign up here, but best to contact directly Kathryn Shannon at kathrynjshannon@gmail.com or Maryellen Gallo at maryellengallo@yahoo.com. It's going to be a great game!

Please arrive a half hour early (11:30 am), so you have time to go over your card with your Mentor or Mentee, and it's valuable if the Mentor can spend a few minutes after the game going over 1 or 2 things the Mentee might think about for the future.

Scores will be posted here right after the game. And, as a special treat, McBruce has prepared comments on the hands that will be available also right after the game concludes. Click here for a sample of what is to come! Hand analysis was provided for a couple of games in 2013, and was immensely valuable.
But it takes a ton of work, so many thanks to McBruce for putting this together!

Monthly Unit Game: The next MUG (Pairs) is Saturday, May 7th.

Spring Sectional: The Spring Sectional is May 20-23 at the Queensborough Comunity Centre in New Westminster.
Here's the flyer. Mark your calendars!
And, the Partnership Desk is now open.

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)
Yen Karro (5-20)


Unit 430 is in Zone VI and a number of Unit 430 players distinguished themselves as Zone winners! Congratulations to:

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.
