FWDBC IS CLOSED THROUGH SEPTEMBER 1

PLEASE HELP US FIGHT ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE IN 2020

 

 

 

This year we couldn’t hold our Longest Day event, but those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias and their families need our help even more than they always have. Please join FWDBC players (below) who’ve helped us raise $7,575--and keep the momentum going by donating now!

ONLINE GAMES FOR FWDBC PLAYERS SET UP

The FWDBC is now partnering with the Indianapolis Bridge Center for Bridge Base Online’s Virtual Club Games. This means that our players are welcome to play there and if they do, our club will receive a share of the entry fees. We are financially healthy, but this income will help offset our fixed expenses until we get back to playing in person.

To play in the Indianapolis Open or Limited online games (times/cost), you first need to be registered (free) at Bridgebase.com with a username and ACBL number. (If you don’t know the latter, contact Kim Grant at (krfgrant@gmail.com). Also please send Kim your BBO user name. Click here for more details on how to register, find a game, and play online bridge for lots of masterpoints. Enjoy!

Please monitor your email and this website www.fortwaynebridge.org for updates. Those without email service can call Club Manager Gary Chaney (419-438-2175).
