Congrats to the winners! We had some of our players play in the first game of the new year at the Vancouver Bridge Centre, and not only did they hold their own in an open field, finishing close to average, but they managed 22 boards in three hours without too much trouble. Our growing group is getting better and closer to being comfortable with the veterans!

Didn't do as well as you hoped? Don't worry; it's 14 boards and there is a large luck factor in short sessions, so there are increased chances of scores outside the normal range of about 35-65%. Things tend to even out over time, but less time means less even-ing out!

Today's deals and notes are here.

Our game results are posted online here shortly after the main game ends.
