MidTex Alliance BBO Virtual Club Schedule

The bridge clubs in Units 207 (Austin & environs) and 172 (San Antonio & environs) have formed a BBO alliance called the MidTex Alliance. This allows players from all of those clubs to play in BBO games sponsored by any of those clubs. Currently, there are 15 bridge clubs in the alliance (basically all clubs in those two units). The clubs in those units that are running BBO games are:

  • BCAustin
  • Fiesta
  • HI Bridge
  • Hill Country Bridge

Below is the schedule of these BBO games in which BCA players can participate. Remember that these games will not show up in the Virtual Clubs menu until two hours before game time. We welcome your feedback. Use the Suggestion Box above right.
