ONLINE GAMES
SILVER LININGS WEEK
July 27 - August 2
All virtual clubs pay silver points at twice the usual rate.
 

We have changed our affiliation to Duncan Bridge Center for players who have played in the 750 games on Tuesday or Thursday. The reason is that DBC provides 399er games at 9:30 am and 750 games at 1:10 pm every day. If you played in the Fresno 750 games, you can play in any DBC game. Here is their BBO schedule:

ACBL Cancels 2020 Tournaments
The Fall NABC in Tampa is canceled. ACBL will not staff any face-to-face tournaments for the rest of the year.
Our August NLM tournament is canceled.

 

Club Games at Desert Cities Bridge Club (DCBC)
  We have not started virtual club games, but our clubs are now pooling with the Desert Cities Bridge Club (DCBC) so that you can enter their games if you have won any master points in our games last year or played this year. The DCBC has online games every day for $6.  Just get on BBO, be sure you have a payment account, find the DCBC game under Virtual Clubs, ACBL North America, click the game and invite your partner. You can find the DCBC schedule online at www.desertcitiesbridge.com.


 

BRIDGE CENTER TO REMAIN CLOSED
PLAY ON LINE 

The Fresno Bridge Center will remain closed until we believe it is safe to  reopen. When we do, we'll have masks, hand sanitizers and other precautions to keep you safe.

Bridge Base Online (BBO) now has masterpoint games to benefit clubs. The charge is $5 for pair games and $6 for robot individual games. If you register your ACBL number, four dollars goes to the bridge clubs that you normally play in.  Pair games are held at 7 am, 2 pm, and 4:30 pm. Individual games are held once each day. You can start the individual game anytime and take breaks as long as you finish 18 boards. Information about these games is available on BBO (www.bridgebase.com) and at ACBL (https://www.acbl.org/clubsupportonlinegames/). BBO also has many other games available at less than $2 which do not contribute to local clubs.

We are saddened to report that Fran Guagliardo who was the wife of Matt Guagliardo passed away. Matt was a former Fresno Unit president who almost single-handedly brought the NABC to Fresno in 1980. Fran was a talented artist who drew the cover of the 1980 NABC restaurant guide and several other items for us.

The Fresno Unit observes the Zero
Tolerance policy at all the games it sponsors.

Club owners have been asked to follow the policy as well, and most have agreed. If you are bothered by rudeness at the table, call the director immediately.
