FWDBC IS CLOSED THROUGH SEPTEMBER 1

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).

FWDBC RAISES MORE THAN $12,000 FOR FOOD BANK

CHFB

On May 15 Club Manager Gary Chaney delivered $12,394 in checks, donated by 109 club players, to the Community Harvest Food Bank's Executive President Carmen Cumberland. The challenge began when players were asked to donate what they would have paid (or more) to play since the club has been closed in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Most donated much more, in amounts ranging from $20 to $1,000. Using a purchasing statistic provided by Bob Gasser, our players have enabled the Food Bank to purchase 65,231 pounds--almost 33 tons--of food to be distributed to our fellow citizens in their time of need. To all who gave, a big THANK YOU!
