Hello Members, all the information listed below is current at this point in time. If there are any changes, this information will be updated as soon as I am aware of it. The best way to keep up to date is by logging in to our Bridgewebs site every so often and also by looking at " The Racquet" which is published and sent out to all members on a regular basis. Other websites include the NIBU and the various Bridgewebs of the clubs involved especially Kelvin Malone and Derryvolgie.

If you wish to play in any of these, you and partner must be online at same time and at least 10 mins before but I would recommend registering an hour before. Once registered, you can log off but return at 10 mins before the start.
If a board is timed out, in most of these, an adjusted score will be made according to what the director believes what the final result would be. This is to stop deliberate slow play
To find a particular tournament, this depends on if it is free or not
Free Tournaments. Go to Competitive>Free>Pending> search for relevant host
Paid Tournaments. Go to Featured Area>Virtual Clubs>Other Countries>Pending>search for relevant host
BBO $ can be purchased on BBO main page
Undo's are not always allowed so it is recommended that you go into your personal account and under settings, turn on "confirm bids". This ensures every time a bid is made, you have to confirm it first
. I expect from 1st August, no free tournaments will be allowed. I would also recommend our members to play in the NIBU tournaments. If anybody needs any further help in this matter, please don't hesitate to contact me
