This event is open to all. There will be prizes for the top finishers (breakdown to be determined) with a minimum grand prize of $500. Entry fee to the tournament is $60.
Bridge Tournament: There have been several requests for a bridge tournament. To allow the Anniversary Office to make the necessary arrangements, it is essential we know how many people wish to partake in a bridge tournament. A tournament will only be arranged if there is sufficient interest, and it will be held at the Edmonton Garrison. Exact location TBD. Volunteers will be needed to help run the tournament. If you wish to volunteer, please contact the Anniversary Office.
