Bridge Manitoba hosted its Helen Shields Rookie Master game on April 2nd and it was a great success! 33 brave rookies came out to play with 33 masters, and a great time was had by all. Congratulations to National Champions Pat MacCrimmon and Gary Parker, who came in first across Canada with 68.86%! Congrats also go to E/W first place club winners John Lamarche and Gim Ong, as well as Paulette and Jacques Desaulniers, and Marlene Pontifex and Roxana Dragan, who all made it in to the top 20 nation-wide! You've done Bridge Manitoba proud.

Sincere thanks to all that came out, to Dave West for organizing and directing this event, and to Jacqueline Meyers for looking after snacks. We look forward to seeing you all again in our next Rookie Master game in the fall!




We have been cordially invited to attend the Minnesota Gopher Regional, being held at the Crowne Plaza Aire Hotel in Minneapolis from May 20th through the 25th.  For more information, click here.
