All vClub games which started at 12:15P are rescheduled to 11:45AM beginning Friday, June 26. We have been requested to make this change by BBO and The Common Game. The online Game Calendar has been updated to reflect this change.
The reason for this change is technical; contact Ken Llacera for details.
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...."
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.
Here's a link for special "senior and vulnerable people" shopping days and hours at major grocery stores in Santa Cruz County. You can order online at many grocery stores as well.
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 our members are in a high-risk category.
