EBC HIGHLIGHTS

Our Edmonton Bridge Centre reopened Tuesday, September 7th.
ALL people entering the club need to be FULLY VACCINATED.
See the September letter and calendar for details.

___________________________________________________________

 

Following the recent provincial mandates, our club remains OPEN for

FULLY VACCINATED players. We have to ask for proof of vaccination.

Please bring along your proof and we will add you to a list of approved

entrants, so you will not have to show it each time. Also, the mandate

to wear masks inside continues, so please be diligent in wearing your

mask and keeping us all safe. Thank you for your co-operation.

EBC ONLINE BRIDGE

Many of you have found ways to play bridge online. We now have a

VIRTUAL CLUB on Bridgebase Online (BBO). We are able to offer ACBL

 masterpoints and unlimited tables, but we have to charge a fee for this.

We offer many separate OPEN and INTERMEDIATE games.

In BBO, under Virtual clubs, then ACBL clubs, Scroll through pending games, look for or search VACB130096 and EDMONTON in caps. It may be easier to find next time, if you 'follow' or 'friend' our VACB130096 identity.

 

Current Schedule of ONLINE Games

Monday & Friday Afts 12:30pm Open IMP Pairs.
Wednesday & Friday Afts 12:30pm Intermediate Pairs.
Saturday and Sunday Afts 12:30pm Single Open Stratified
(
Starting January)Monday and Weds Eves 7:00pm Single Open Stratified
Thursday evening Expert IMP Pairs 7:00pm
(Back to Online for the winter)

 

See Calendar below:


Make sure you have BB$ in your account and register.
Both players need to be online to register.
The usual price is 4 $US per player.
(80% goes to supporting our club and directors)
Occasionally, the ACBL charges a higher sanction, which we have to add to the price.


Hand Records now available on EBC Results Page Calendars


You do not have to be an ACBL member to play

but you do have to attach your ACBL member number

to your BBO profile to receive masterpoints.

Do this by going to ACBLworld, click blue button <Update ACBL Number>.

The Bob Crosby Memorial Library

Robert (Bob) Crosby, who died in 2012, was one of Edmonton's most accomplished bridge players, as well as being a prolific coach and writer. Bob's insight, thoughtfulness, and clarity of expression are apparent here, in the almost 2,000 articles that he wrote during the last several years of his life.
