Thank you Valerie

We send our best wishes to Valerie Mathers who has just retired from CBAI Head Office after 20 years as the voice at the other end of the phone.  Thank you for looking after us all so efficiently, politely and patiently.  You were able to help everybody from club member to CBAI president and you did so with just the correct balance of humour and frankness and always with the best interests of Irish Bridge at heart.  Thank you for making yourself available to us all 24/7 (way and above the call of duty).  Hopefully you will now be able to enjoy your bridge without being bombarded with questions and jobs to do.

We are delighted to announce that we will be running this year’s Yeats Country Bridge Congress (Sligo) as an Online Event. We will be donating all proceeds from the congress to the following 3 Charities:  North West Hospice (Sligo), Milford Hospice (Limerick) and Blackrock Hospice (Dublin).

Entry Fee BB$5 per session per person.

The entry fee is payable at registration time at the start of each session.  It is a good idea to buy your BB$ in advance and you do this by logging into your BBO account and clicking on the BB$ icon.  Half of this entry fee is retained by Bridge Base Online and the rest will be divided out to our three charities.
