Update From South Bay Bridge Club, March 22, 2020

Much has happened in the space of a week.  Last Sunday, we announced our decision to close the bridge club for two weeks.  Today, it is unlikely that we will be able to open on March 30 as we had hoped.  We are under government orders to stay at home, and we do not have an ending date for the order.  Public health authorities are requiring us to stay at home to protect ourselves and others.  

The ACBL has sent us a recommendation that all bridge clubs remain closed at least until May 11.  In short, we will remain closed until we are notified by the authorities that it is safe to re-open.

 

Mike Lawrence June 6 - 7 Canceled

With great regret, we are cancelling Mike Lawrence’s 2-day teaching event.  For those of you who have already paid, we have the checks at the bridge club.  They will not be deposited.  As soon as we can retrieve them, the checks will be returned.

2/1 Class Thursday 5:30 TBD

The date for Mark Raggio’s 2 over 1 class will be announced when we have more information about when we can re-open.

Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game

The ACBL and Bridge Base Online have started a program under which you can play in tournaments on BBO and most of the money will be returned to your local bridge club.  These tournaments award black points.  There are 3 tournaments a day, and you must register on BBO before the start time in order to play.  Registration opens 2 hours before start time.  This is information copied from BBO:

As of Thursday, March 19, daily at 7 a.m., 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pacific time, ACBL members can play with any other ACBL member in a specially created game on BBO and earn black masterpoints®. When you play in one of these games, the majority of your table fees will be given back to your club. This way, you can help to support your club while also having the opportunity to win black masterpoints. 


What: Support Your Club ACBL Black Point Game (18 boards)
When: Every day at 7 a.m., 3 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Pacific time
Awards: ACBL Black Masterpoints and BBO Points
Entry fee: 5 BB$
Limits: Open to all.

The ACBL looks at the player numbers of the tournament players and is able to assign money to their club or clubs based on how often they play at each one.  Accordingly, if you play 50% of the time at South Bay and 50% of the time at another club, the money is split 50/50.
