A visitor is defined as someone who is not in TBC include list. The include list is built by ACBL, containing the BBO usernames of people who "be;ong" to our club. If you would like to play with a visitor, please discuss with the Director well before the start of any of our games. Michael can be reached online as vacb185736 30 minutes before the game. His cell number is 343-262-4063.

  Results display on our web site

Some videos on looking at the results on our website:

  1. Have a look here to see where/how one can view results for a board, similar to that which you now see on the Bridgemate after a score has been accepted by E/W. 
  2. An intro to the results engine available on the web site can be seen here.
  3. Discussion of goings-on at the table that detracts from the ability to play all the boards in the 3 hours alloted time can be seen here.
