Getting A Partner in SCBC vClub Games

Situation: You want to play in a SCBC game which doesn't allow robots but you don't have a partner.

  1. Sign up on the Partnership Desk at least 15 minutes before game time
  2. If no one shows up by 5 minutes before the game, you will be invited by U550_Sub
  3. After the game starts, the director will get you a suitable, real person to partner with you

You can see the steps here. Players on the Partnership desk have won games and finished high in others. No guarantees of course!

Friday Evening Game Adds San Jose Players

San Jose and Santa Cruz have teamed up to expand the Friday evening open game. On the 1st and 3rd Fridays, the vClub game will be sponsored by the SCBC; the 2nd and 4th Friday evenings will be held by San Jose. The games are drawing 9+ tables and a strong field.

The San Jose director is Trish Steele, VACB128702. Finding her game:

  • Click on Virtual Clubs
  • Click on All Clubs
  • Search for San Jose

Please email Trish before your first game so you won't get blocked. If you try to register and get the "blocked" message, just chat to VACB128702 and tell her you are from Santa Cruz.

Virtual Clubs on BBO

All games are currently conducted online as an ACBL Virtual Club (vClub) on BBO. Here's a document with details about our vClubs and how to register on BBO.

SCBC Temporary Closure

The temporary closure of the SCBC facility continues. The Unit Board of Directors' policy is to keep the SCBC facility closed until face-to-face (F2F) bridge is again safe. This period may extend far past the date local health directives allow most activities to resume due to the nature of F2F bridge and because most members are in a high-risk category.

ACBL Cancels All NABC and Regionals

As stated in an email to members, "Due to the ongoing risk posed by the coronavirus, the ACBL is canceling the 2020 Fall North American Bridge Championships, scheduled for November 26-December 6, 2020, in Tampa FL. The 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. It is the right thing to do. The safety of our members, the community most at risk for COVID-19, and our employees is of paramount importance to us. At this time, we cannot ask players or staff to travel and risk exposure...."
