BBO Upgrade 12 May 2020
BBO has upgraded Casual bridge area operation onto a separate BBO site. When playing Casual bridge with friends, they all need to be on this upgraded version (5.6.0) and you must click the Casual button before setting up your table or inviting to a set game. You will not see players connected to the main BBO site, nor will you be automatically taken to your tournament. Remember to be in the Competitive area with a few minutes before your tournament is scheduled to start.

ONLINE BRIDGE A SUMMARY OF APRIL

The first month of online bridge has been a great success. Bolton Bridge Club has now 132 of its members registered on Bridgebase Online. There have been 26 duplicate tournaments played, two with Bolton players only , and the remainder in conjunction with Preston and Southport bridge clubs. 109 members have played in these tournaments. In addition many members have set up social games on private tables with their friends. It is pleasing to see a number of members from the last lessons cohort playing online and practicing what they have learnt.

The table below shows a summary of average percentages by Bolton players where they have played in 4 or more online tournaments during the month of April.

KEEP IN TOUCH WITH FRIENDS FROM BOLTON BC

Stay in touch with friends, have a chat and let us know how you are going on.  New telephone chat group starting.  All you need is a phone :)

Are you missing that chance for a chat with your friends from the Bridge Club?  Let them know how you are going on, find out about them and see how many jigsaws they have completed so far.

On Wednesday morning this week we tried  our first group telephone chat, giving the chance to catch up on the phone with a number of other members at the same time.  It was a success and we swapped stories with members who were abroad at this time.   We plan another group telephone chat early next week. 

It only costs the same as phoning Edinburgh or London or any UK city.   A great way to stay in touch, keep up to date with the local news, and just pass an hour hearing from others.

Please help spread the word to people not on the internet, but who might really appreciate the chance to have a chat for an hour.
