The Bridge Club currently meets virtually every Monday from 1:00 - 3:00pm. We are a friendly group of members that range from beginners to intermediate in terms of skill range. We use Zoom as our communication tool and the "Bridge Base" app is the forum we use. We often have one table set up and share who sits at the table throughout our two hours of play.

When one is not playing they are in the role of 'Kibitzing" which allows one to see all the hands being played and follow along with the play. The app also allows for a review of the hand played in its 'history' section which lets us review our bidding process and how we fared with others who played that same hand. We have an avid bridge player who joins us when she can and provides us with great guidance / lessons as related to the hands played. We would love to have you join us and only ask that you have the ability to run the Zoom platform and the Bridge Base app at the same time - whether that means two devices (a computer, an I-pad, or your smartphone) or the ability to have two screens open and running on your computer. Our overall goal is to learn and play bridge but even more so it is to have fun while doing so. a description here.

This Club was formed to provide Retirees of George Brown College interested in live theatre a variety of theatrical performances to attend as a group at theatres within Toronto as well as at the Stratford and Shaw Festivals. 
In past years we have also attended  student performances at the Soulpepper Theatre which also houses the George Brown Theatre School.

We are pleased to announce some exciting additions to our upcoming performances that we hope  will enhance your theatre experience.  To enrich your time with us, we will be introducing optional activities that aim to create an opportunity for members to get to know each other prior to the performance, gain some insights into the performance and have an opportunity to reflect on the performance.   Several weeks before the event, we will be organizing an informal gathering where attendees can mingle, savour a beverage, and take part in an insightful introduction to the play. On the day of the performance, join us for a delightful group lunch before the show and a stimulating discussion session afterward to share your thoughts and reflections.

These activities are entirely optional, designed to complement and elevate your theatre experience, but they may not suit everyone, so feel free to opt in or out of all activities. We believe that these gatherings will not only add value but also foster a sense of camaraderie and shared appreciation for the arts among our members.

Contact either of our convenors for more detailed information.
