Updated Website More Secure

SCBC Web version 2 is now "live" featuring a fully secure site that can be trusted with your data.

Unless you are using the secure portions of the site, you will see no difference in your SCBC web experience. Activities such as checking game results, looking at the calendar or checking News are unchanged.

Secure applications, such as "Member Query" or "Updating Your Information", require a login. There is a Create Account link to establish a secure account with login credentials. This capability is restricted to registered members of Unit 550 with a valid email address on file. Click the Create Account link at the top of a page. Your ACBL# is your "userid".

The election results will be announced during the Annual Meeting and Holiday Party on Saturday, December 14th.
