John McAdam District
1 Wide Charity Game
participating clubs in District 1
For the last few years, District 1 has had a District-Wide Charity game which raises money for the Canadian Bridge Federation (CBF) Charity Fund. This game was very capably chaired by John McAdam. In December 2006 John unfortunately passed away, and the District 1 Board decided to honour his memory by naming the event after him.
John McAdam, of Ottawa was a bridge player and administrator who served in many
capacities on the District 1 and the Unit 192 Boards. He was a fine bridge
player and was a gentleman both at and away from the bridge table.

This Charity game is typically held in early November at all clubs in District 1 who are willing to participate in the event. The dates changes to different days of the week annually, so that more clubs can have the game on a regular bridge night.
Jean LaTraverse Jr. is now the District Charity Chair, whose responsibility is to work with ACBL to organize this game.
Letís try to raise a lot more money for the Fund! And the masterpoint awards arenít bad either.
Please ask your club if it is holding the game in support of this worthwhile cause, and plan to play in November !
