Welcome to Bridge On The Edge

Web Site

Welcome to the website of Bridge on the Edge, based in St. John's, NL, Canada.  In 2016 we became a player owned bridge club.  We support a respectful culture, both at the bridge table and in all BOTE communications, for the enjoyment and growth of all members.  Due to Covid -19 all our games are presently online.  

Please check with any Board member if you need additional information.

Congratulations to Marilyn Walbourne

REMINDER----BOTE online Monday

Reminder! Next BOTE online game April 12th @ 1:35pm (open)

How’s your preparation going?  

Have you signed up for BBO?  

Got your bridge bucks? 

Had a practise game to get used to the interface?  

Lined up a partner, (who will have to be online when you register after 11:35 am for the afternoon games and 5:00 pm for the evening)?

If you need a partner, try using the partnership tab associated with the BOTE game on the BBO website.
This is only available two hours before the game. Another option is the BOTE website but that depends on people checking there and a third option is to play with a robot! They are extremely good declarers, smiley.

*Asked for help if you need it? *Please do it today, not the morning of the game.*

Looking forward to seeing you online.

To review results go to and open appropriate file date.

BBO Tips

Use "Search” (top right) in the ACBL Virtual club section to find the BOTE game easily.

If your bid should be alerted, then before you make your bid, type the alert and a full explanation into the space labelled "Alert”. Then bid. Only the opponents can see the alert so you are not telling your partner what your bid means. For example if you are bidding 3 clubs after a 1 spade opener, don’t just say ‘Bergen’, say '4 card support 10-12 pts

In ACBL games, the director can not "undo" an action. So if your concerned about clicking the wrong bid or selecting the wrong card, you can select "confirm bid" or "confirm play" in Account-Settings - just be mindful this will add time to your play!
