Monthly team games have been moved back to Thursdays in the afternoon (12:15 pm) according to the schedule on the calendar, but generally on the second of each month.  The first of these team games is on October 10 and is a Jane Johnston Memorial Game.  The game will be run by Jon Preston concurrently with the usual Thursday Pair game.

Welcome to Island Bridge Club

Located in Victoria, B.C., we are an ACBL sanctioned club that runs four games a week on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons at 12:15 p.m and at 9:30 am on Friday mornings.  All 4 games are Open Pairs with a special D-Lite game for players with under 20 masterpoints on Wednesdays in addition to the Open Pair game.  On the second Thursday of every month, there is a team game that runs alongside the usual pair section.  Debbie Wastle will be giving lessons from 11:45 am to 12:10 pm before the Monday game.  All pair hands are computer generated courtesy of the Common Game.

Correcting Scores at Table

I have activated a setting in the bridgemates that allows players to erase boards at the table without calling me.  If you press the far right arrow key (4th in the top row) you will get a list of scores and you will see a new option to correct (4th button top row).  This will allow you to erase your mistake and re-enter the board.  East-West pairs should make sure that the bridgemates are displaying the next round when they leave so as to prevent any possible tampering.  After the machines are on to the next round, you must call me to make corrections.  Hope you like this new feature.

TD Button on Bridgemates

Starting in November, I will be using a feature on the bridgemates that allows players to page me if I'm not responding to verbal calls.  There will be a TD "button" (the 3rd function key in) that you can press which will send a note to the bridgemate scoring program.  This will page me anywhere in the church with the table number needing assistance.  If you have any questions about this or any other feature of the bridgemate II's, feel free to ask.
