Bridge Base Online ACBL Tournaments to SUPPORT OUR CLUB

♠                          Attention LRDBC Members

For public health reasons, the club is currently not holding games. But all is not lost!

The ACBL is now hosting daily on-line tournaments which award black points, and our club receives the bulk of the table fee.

These 18 board tournaments begin at 9:00 a.m., 4:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. CDT each day.

Tournament fee is only $5.00.  $4.00 of this amount is returned to your home club.

The link below provides guidance in three areas:

 1. How to register as a BBO player (free)


 2. How to play in regular BBO games (free)

 3. How to sign up for ACBL "Support Your Club" tournaments

 Thanks for supporting LRDBC while you have fun playing bridge with your favorite partner!

LRDBC: COVID-19 Update Friday, April 3

 

Arkansas health authorities are advising a continuation of strict measures to reduce transmission of the coronavirus.

With this and advice from the ad hoc medical committee, the LRDBC Board has cancelled all functions through April 30

At that time there will be a careful reevaluation of the risk of reopening and a consideration of strategies for further risk mitigation.

Meanwhile, play some bridge online (try BBO or another online service).

The club's website (click here) has a list of members with BBO names. If you want your name added to that list, contact Cheryl Floyd (floydowen@gmail.com).

BBO has opportunities for solitaire, pairs, and teams play. There is also a daily tournament ($5 per entry) that awards black points...and $4 of every entry is returned to your home club.

Most important thing: Stay healthy and stay safe

The common sense guidelines haven't changed: protect yourself and others stay the same.

• Washing hands frequently
• Using hand sanitizing products
• Avoiding direct contact with others
• Keeping your hands out of your face.

Traveling to a Tournament?

The Little Rock Duplicate Bridge Club encourages its members to attend tournaments and recognizes that travel to tournaments can present problems for some players.  With that in mind, a sign-up sheet has been posted on the bulletin board at the club where players can post their travel plans.  Players can list tournaments they plan to attend, indicating whether they can offer a shared ride with others or need to obtain a ride, or want to meet up with others at the tournament location for dinner or other social outings.
