New 99er Game Available Daily

A new daily game is available for those players who have under 100 masterpoints and who have played in BCAustin games. This game is not part of BCAustin; it is run by a Florida club but is available to all 99er's whose ACBL districts and clubs have "opted in" - which we have. The game is at 6 p.m. CST and consists of 18 boards. To get to the game, after logging in to BBO, click on Virtual Clubs and look for VACB901280 99ers Nite Club East.

This game will not show up until 4 p.m. on game day, and also will not show up if you have more than 100 masterpoints. Game fee is 6.00 BBO$. A portion of the fee is returned to our club. Each day there are pre-game and post-game lesson sessions; you can learn more about these when in the game.
