The New Year – 2013– has arrived and is full of adventure and possibilities to enjoy even more bridge !
The exciting event that the Women’s Committee has created for women players wherever they are – one that they can play in their own homes, at very little cost- is already in its 6th edition!!
I had the total support of José Damiani, President Emeritus of the World Bridge Federation, and the WBF Executive Council, and also now from the WBF President Gianarrigo Rona. I am very pleased to attach a special message from Gianarrigo to you urging your support for this event, and asking for your help and co-operation to ensure its success!
The 2013 Women’s Online Bridge Festival
Organised by the World Bridge Federation and Bridge Base Online
15th – 21st April 2013
An online week of bridge, just for women players. Pairs and individual tournaments throughout the week, played at different times to allow competitors in any time zone to join in.
The important objectives are:
1. To help the Women Players who wish to compete in a National and international Championships, giving them the opportunity to train, playing with their partners against Players from all over the World.
2. To provide a social event with a good atmosphere
3. To promote in general the « Women’s Bridge » in the World.
And now a very important question:
What does the WBF and our Women’s Committee, ask of you ?
Just to put our banner and a link on your website ! And even better, if possible, to contact as many of your women players as possible to inform them of the event.
We have created four banners in different sizes which you can find if you click here – just choose the size that suits you and put it onto your site. Or I can email them to you if you prefer. And link it to www.wbfwomensbridgeclub.org where you can find information letters in five different languages.
It is as simple as that.
Without you we cannot achieve our Festival, this is for sure!
If the women Players of your Country cannot read about this Festival on the WEBSITE of your Federation, our initiative and the Festival itself will not be a success and will not be useful to anybody.
I thank you in advance also on behalf of our President Gianarrigo Rona.
Best wishes for your Bridge Activity and success in 2013
Anna Maria Torlontano
Chairman, WBF Women’s Committee
