Registration opens 2 hours prior to the start of the game.  Please be fully registered at least 15 minutes before the game starts.    Call me at 970-471-3076 if you need help.  I will be online monitoring registration. Depending on the size of the game we will try to play 18 boards allowing 7 minutes per board.  The games will last just a little over 2 hours.   If we find we have ample time, this will change to 21 boards at 6 minutes per board.   (21 x 6 is the same as 18 x 7!)
There are 2 ways to register.  Make sure your partner is also online when registering.    
  1. The easiest was, beginning 2 hours before the start time, is to select Virtual ACBL Clubs under FEATURED AREAS.  (The contents of this window have changed.)  The select ACBL - North America.   Enter Vail in the Search box in the top right of this window to find our game.  
  2. The second way is to Select Competitive.  What previously said "ACBL Virtual Clubs" has been changed to "ACBL North America".  Select that.  The title of the next window is "ACBL Virtual Clubs."  Enter Vail in the Search box in the top right of this window to find our game. 

Vail Valley Bridge Club, operated by Marcia and Tom McCalden, is dedicated to providing high quality friendly ACBL sanctioned games.
