Scoring, Flighting--How does it all work?

There are many events with different levels allowing players from all levels the ability to participate.  Understanding flights, stratas and all the bridge lingo can be confusing.  Check out this link for definitions or feel free to ask one of the board members or event planners for more information.  You can reach us as tournaments@bridgemanitoba.org

Special Events--Are they for me?

There are many special events throughout the year.  These events are usually for everyone and we'd encourage you to come and play in them.  Some require prequalification, some are specifically for new players, others for seniors so check out this section for more information.
