Web Site

Welcome to the Unit 216 & Des Moines Area web site - bridgewebs.com/unit216. We have ACBL sanctioned duplicate bridge games running most days. (Check the Information and Calendar items). We also have a variety of instructional classes (See Bridge Classes item) and several times a year hold ACBL Sectional tournaments at the center.

Be sure to check out the Using the Site section (under the News Page menu item) for first time users.

There is a section under News Page for Older News Items (over a year old or so).

Live Playing Update:

ACBL will not staff any sectionals or regionals with tournament directors for the remainder of 2020. This removes any possibility for face-to-face tournaments during the balance of the year.
They now also announce no live tournaments through at least February, 2021.

NOTE: In order to get Results for any BBO game uploaded, I need the BBO credentials of someone who played in the event. I do not have many for the 0-300 group.


Concerns for setup and/or parnerships should be directed to Nancy Wilson (515)710-0808.

Or Rich Newell (515)518-0029 can help with BBO questions/issues.


How To Use BBO:

Here's a thorough tutorial on How To Use BBO. (11+ minutes)

The self-alert method used on BBO is often confusing for newcomers.
Here's a short video that helps explain how it is used.
If you're still unsure how to alert on BBO, please view this (2+ minutes).

Want to know what those numbers are on people's BBO profile?
Here's the explanation.

BBO Usernames are now shown on the Members Details (listing) in the Members Only Section
They are sortable here too! (So you can order by BBO Username to find out who's who easier!)

BTW, if results only show your BBO Username and are not converted to your real name, you need to modify your profile in Members Only -or- contact Bud and let him know.
