The VP scale in use is as follows :
1. As soon as you get notification please contract the other pair to found out their BBO names and to arrange a day and time to play. Note that BBO is much less busy morning and afternoon than it is evening. To make it easy to arrange matches, you could keep 1030 every Monday morning as free time for this match?
2. To create the match on BBO follow the following steps (all players are assumed to have a BBO account - if not here's how to sign up https://youtu.be/KrY6ZqVGvX8)
5. If a match cannot be scheduled within the week then it will be declared an 8-8 draw. If someone has to sit out the system gives them a score of 14 VPs. Cumulative results will appear on the GCBA website.
6. Do your best to support the principle of FULL DISCLOSURE, being profuse in your explanation of bids and your carding agreements. You can create a BBO convention card - video showing how is here. And there is a nice video also available on alerting your own bids. You are also encouraged to make your profile honest and complete - so that your opponents can tell against whom they are playing.
