BBO - NEWS (Mon 01-Feb-2021): BBO is now only available on the newest (non-flash) version. ~~~~~
In the new version our "bbo_iac" user can neither call out privately to members OR more importantly, add new members to our private club. What this means, is that any teaching sessions held in the IAC private club area cannot be reached by our new members. Therefore, IAC mentors have been asked to open their sessions in the Public Club named "Lesson" that has the description of "Intermediate and Advanced Bridge Club" until further notice. ~~~~~~~~~~
In the meantime, please check these sources for information about our club activities - ~~~~~
* The IAC Website weekly calendar~~~~~
* The IAC Forum at IAC Forum ~~~~~
* Our YouTube site at IAC YouTube Site~~~~~
* IAC 2/1 Standard System notes at https://tinyurl.com/jyw73px~~~~~~~~~~
We will keep members informed of any changes to this procedure.~~~~~~~~~~
Sunsetting the MP Reward Program ~~~~~~~~~~
As many members are aware, when IAC first started doing competitive events; an incentive program to award Monster Points was devised to reward members for participating in IAC tournaments and team games. The goal was to increase member activity and it was quite successful -- especially when we were able to hold 4 or 5 team games in a day. At this time the Admin group has decided that the need for this program is outweighed by the effort necessary to maintain it. As such, Monster Points for tournaments and team games will no longer be tracked. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
