Hope this finds you all well in these strange times. As it looks as though we won’t be playing bridge for a while I have had the chance to train as an online BBO Tournament Director so we could run pairs bridge nights out of the Elgin Bridge Centre. To be able to do this I need to run a match pointed pairs event on a Thursday night which is the night that John Copeland can train me at 7 pm which everyone is welcome to take part. First night would be 6th August .
Instructions on how to take part and register will be sent to all registrants.. Each entrant will have to pay One BB$ per match on registering. An attachment on how to purchase BB$ will be sent to registrants. This is the arrangement for our first events & may change.
We will not know how many pairs have registered until the start and will have reserves in place in the event of a half table. The number of boards played may vary 20-24 depending on numbers but all pairs will play the same boards like we used to do in face to face bridge. Members can have different partners weekly if they choose (if their regular partner is away or can’t play for one reason or another or they fancy a change). We need to have a list of all usernames in order to pre-register them. Masterpoints will be awarded by SBU in the usual way.
The details I need are
You BBO handle name
SBU Number (if you have one)
If this works out we can then maybe get other people trained as Tournament Directors as you can’t play pairs on BBO without a TD.
Could all secretaries please let as many people know of these arrangements and maybe put something up on their website.
If you have any questions please get in touch.
