Play Bridge Online Supporting Local Clubs

________________________

During this time of concern about our members' health and safety, when our local bridge clubs have temporarily closed, you may be feeling an urge to find a way to play bridge with your regular partners and other friends.

________________________


Bridge Base Online (BBO) is now offering daily games with black points awarded. Go to the BBO website information page by clicking here to learn how to use BBO and play in these new games supporting participating local clubs. (Note: the 2:00pm PDT game has been moved back to a 2:10 start time.)

In addition, some of our local clubs are now offering their own BBO virtual games, where play is just with players at that club. Check the news on the right side of our home page, and your local club's website for more info.

SILVER LININGS WEEK MAY 25-31
TRIPLE SILVER POINTS AWARDED
AT YOUR LOCAL VIRTUAL CLUB

So, if you are staying at home as recommended by health officials, this is a fun way to enjoy some bridge during these trying times.
