Wednesday 12:15 PM, open, (Jim Johnson)

There is also a limited game on Monday, May 4, 3:15 PM, 0-50 MP limit (Sally Ann Rhea; this may or may not become a regular game).
Here’s how to sign up for our virtual club games:
Two hours before game (preferably no less than 30 minutes), both members of the pair should log on to BBO.
Click on Virtual Clubs, then click on ACBL Virtual Clubs.
Find (or search for) the game — it will be labeled “All Boulder Bridge” — click on it.
Click on Partner (it helps to decide ahead of time who is the inviter and who the invitee) and type in your partner's username.
Your partner should then accept.
Make sure you are logged in 10 minutes before the game.
The game will automatically pop up when it starts.
A few things to note:
The master director goes by the username vacb205500. Send them (or any BBO host — they have a yellow username and are under a special tab) a message if there are any technical issues.
When playing, use the menu on the top-left corner of your screen to call the director.
BBO nudges and then automatically logs you off if you are bidding or playing slowly. You will be re-seated at your table when you log back in.
Ideally, you should have a steady internet connection. You can use speedtest.net to find out how fast your internet is. It doesn't need to be stellar, but an unstable internet connection is liable to upset some players.
Again, make sure you are online 10 minutes before game time. If you are not online by game time, you might not be able to play.
