Club History

Ted Boyd, the club's founding president, has written this history of the club's first five years.

We recently had to move from our first home on Gage Street to our new home on Kingsway Drive. Here is a description of that long and winding road.

Trillium Grant

In 2013, we received a Trillium grant.  To date we have used that money to purchase a dealing machine to make it possible for us to offer hand records to our players and students, along with remote scoring units that made scoring easier, and the results faster, a new computer and a sound system and projector to aid our teaching program.
