PLAYING F2F on BCL

To Enter our f2f Club

From BCL home page, tap on MEMBERS, from the drop down menu, tap CLUBS, scroll down to Scout Hut Bridge Club.  Tap on Play Bridge (in green) on the left hand side. (If you don’t see this, you’re not associated).  Then tap Enter your F2F Club room.  In the room you will see Lobby on the left and SCOUTH (us) on the right.  You will also see any other club that’s playing.  You will stay here until the room opens.

Start time. 

The room will open at 7.00pm and play will start exactly 15 minutes later, at 7.15pm.  Be in the f2f area at 6.55pm.  If you cannot access the room when it opens press REFRESH on the top menu.

To sit at a Table
Once in the room one player only from a partnership taps the top left hand table which says Enter Tournament   That player is now seated North at a table in the room, his partner sees him and sits south at that table.  Agree the SSD and wait for start time of 7.15.  Remember to press READY in the centre of the table.

Play 

The system is totally in charge of play, it will place you in the correct seats and give you the correct boards to play.  When a round is finished you will either stay at a table or be whisked to the lobby.  The system waits for everyone to finish the round then play recommences.  If you seem to be waiting a long time, do not worry, the system has not forgotten you!   On the rh CHAT side the system actually tells you what’s happening, but in the early stages it’s easy to overlook this.  When you are ready to play, tap READY in the centre of the table.

If at any time you appear to be stuck, press REFRESH

SLOW PLAY

In a real life club the Director can chivvy along the slow players, far more difficult online.  If you are a slow player, remember please that you are holding everybody up.  If a player at your table is slow, POLITELY ask them to increase the pace.  The reason there can be a long wait between rounds is invariably due to slow play.

CAR PARKING
CAR PARKING

it can be difficult when everyone arrives at once, but would you please try and park tight to the car already parked, or to the top fence.   At the moment a lot of us are playing on a Saturday, and if everyone improves their parking, we can get all the cars in!

Thanks.

***Coronavirus***

IN VIEW OF THE GOVERNMENT RECOMMENDATIONS OF 16th MARCH  ALL BRIDGE AT THE  SCOUT HUT BRIDGE CLUB WILL CEASE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  
 

 

The Scout Hut offers a good game of bridge played in a friendly atmosphere.  We have players of all abilities, and, whilst not affiliated to the EBU, play as much as possible in accordance with their rules without getting too pernickety.  Visitors are always welcome, but as we are a small club we do not have a host system, please see 'partners' on  our 'information'  page.

ONLINE BRIDGE

For anyone wanting to play online, I have found two options (so far).  

BBO, BridgeBase.com,    And

BCL, Bridge club live,  bridgeclublive.com.   This one is English.
