In addition our pool partner clubs will be available.
The Vail Valley Bridge Club has established a "pool" arrangement where players  - in addition to playing in Vail Valley Virtual games on Bridge Base Online (BBO) - can play in Virtual BBO Games with Maggie's Club in Summit county, the Steamboat Bridge Club and the Aspen Club).  If you have played in the Vail Valley club in the past year, you can also play in Virtual BBO games in their clubs.

InterMountain Challenge Games: A joint venture for Vail, Steamboat, Frisco and Aspen clubs: Hosted in sequence each Saturday at 3pm
 
BBO will list every game that you are eligible to play. So, check-in to BBO and select Virtual Clubs and then ACBL North America. All games that you can participate in will be displayed. This list will be updated 2 hours prior to the game start time. Registration opens 2 hours prior to the start of the game.  Your partner must be online at the same time for you to select a game. Please be fully registered at least 15 minutes before the game starts.    Call me at 970-471-3076 if you need help.  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!)

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

Partnerships

If you need a partner, send us your name, dates you want to play, your bridge level and contact information.  

Directions to our games 

Directions to the Vail Christian High School.   31621 US Highway 6, Edwards, CO 81632

Bridge Etiquette
  1. Greet opponents as they arrive at your table.
  2. Make your opening lead face down before writing down the contract  and ask your partner if there are any questions to prevent you from making a lead out of turn.
  3. For any irregularity, call the director.  "Director, Please."

NEWS Feb 2021: The  Aspen Bridge Club has joined our pool relationship. Games Tuesday at 1pm, Thursday at 1pm and Saturday at 12.30pm. If you join BBO 2 hours before these start times you will be allowed to register for these games. ALSO - The Aspen and Vail bridge clubs have merged our Thursday games at 1pm. Thus every Thursday at 1pm there will be a joint Aspen/Vail game with alternating directors from the two clubs.
