       THE HOST PROGRAM      

The HOST Program for F2F Games is Back - Guaranteed Partners

This program is designed to benefit our members, new players and visitors to find a partner.  This is how it works:   

  • Any Club Member can volunteer to HOST.  One may HOST as often as he or she wishes.  
  • You choose the game and the day that best suits your schedule.
  • To sign up to be a HOST, on our website calendar you can click any game that has “Host Wanted” in the game slot.
  • A window opens and you will need to sign in as a member.  
  • Once you sign in your name will appear on the calendar as the HOST for that game. 
  • On your designated day you will arrive 15-20 minutes prior to game time and be prepared to partner anyone who shows up without a partner.
  • Each "two singles" that show up will be paired up to play together, and if we have only even #s show, they are paired and the HOST goes home.
  • If the HOST is required to play, then they play for free, and if they are not needed they receive a Free Play to be used at another time.

NOTE that this program is for F2F Games only.

If your plans change and you cannot HOST, please let the Club know so that your name can be removed and another has the opportunity to HOST. 

Only the Web Administrator can remove the HOST.

Second hand low?  Third hand high?  Cover an honour with an honour?  Return partner’s suit?  Duck?  Unblock?  …

  • Be back at Registration Desk 5 minutes pre-game time.  Click on "something / anything" to verify that you are still logged in.  You may appear to be but if you have had no activity on BBO Site for 20 mins. or so, you may not be logged in.
  • Remember that Slow Play affects everyone in the game.
  • Remember that once you hit the 3 min. mark, any unstarted boards will be taken away and averages assigned.
  • Remember to self-alert/announce your bids - giving a FULL explanation.
    • Pls. type your explanation of your bid on the line provided, before clicking on your bid.
  • Use the 3 Bar option to call/speak to the Director.

AND please check that your CC is an actual CC, not Table Text.  As always, we thank you for your cooperation.
