Marathon Bridge  (September to May)

The Probus Club of Old Oakville Marathon Bridge season runs from mid September and ends with a windup Luncheon in May.  Games are played between two bridge pairs twice a month on a mutually agreed date. The games provide an excellent opportunity to get to know some of your fellow Probus members better. It is also great fun and interesting to play when different conventions are used ranging from basic point count to Goren and the latest conventions.


Members interested in playing from the start of the session beginning in September should contact Kim Shikaze by email kshikaze@cogeco.ca  or by ?phone 905-825-9554 by September 1

.

Couples may be member and spouse or other, or may be two Probus members. No advanced skill level required, only a basic knowledge of the game. If you want to be spare during the season, or register for a place should one become open, you are also welcome.
