You can always find us with our host name which remains the same: vacb267120

To make it easier to find the games you should go to the “people” tab and type in vacb267120 and then “follow” vacb267120. 

Among the many benefits of this alliance is that you can now play with partners from any of these clubs. The money from your entry fee after the ACBL and BBO take their cut will go to support each of these clubs. Many of us continue to have expenses while the business is closed. 

Join us for our Virtual Club Games on BBO

Closings

Stay safe, stay healthy...we'll miss you and look forward to seeing all your smiling faces in the future. At this time, I'm not sure when we'll be reopening. Please check back here for updates. Play online when you can and support local bridge clubs. We're hoping to be able to host our own tournaments in the near future. Miss you all...Julie 

 

Important Information

As the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation continues to develop, please see below an update in relation to Palm Beach Bridge Club's interim procedures being implemented effective Monday March 9. I wish to note at the outset, that there are currently no reported or suspected cases of the virus at PBBC.

1) Players regularly sneezing or coughing:  We are asking that all players who have symptoms of cold or flu to please stay home until these symptoms have subsided.  We recognize that these symptoms most likely are unrelated to coronavirus and may also not even be cold or flu related.  However, as a courtesy to other players and in line with what most businesses are doing these days, players with any cold or flu symptoms  (such as sneezing and coughing) will not be admitted to play, and if inadvertently admitted, will be asked to leave with a refund. A player who happens to sneeze or cough, should, as recommended by medical experts, do so in a tissue (which is then immediately discarded) or in the crook of the elbow and away from the table and other players.

2) Also as recommended by medical experts we encourage all players to regularly wash their hands with soap and hot water and to use hand sanitizer if possible. Hand sanitizer has been placed at every table.

3) Finally, to maintain the cleanliness and overall hygiene of all playing areas, until further notice, no food will be allowed in the playing areas after the game begins.  This includes pretzels, crackers, cookies, brownies and fruit. Each player is responsible for discarding his or her own plate/napkin and utensils PRIOR to the commencement of the game.  There will be no exceptions, including if you happen to check in late.  We will allow 15 minutes for a hospitality break after round 4 to partake in the afternoon refreshments. We will again ask for all paper goods to be discarded before round 5 begins. Coffee and drinks will continue to be allowed in the playing areas during the game-however, each player must discard his/her own cup and not rely on PBBC staff to do so.

Thank you for your cooperation!

Julie, Rich, Debbie and Don
