IAC News
Mon, 01-Feb-2021 BBO - NEWS
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

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.

Timezone & Daylight Saving Settings
Time Zone: This Site shows times in your local time. Select your Time Zone from the list.
Daylight Saving: If you observe Daylight Saving, select your Region from the list.


Help on "Using the Site"
This is the front page of the IAC Site.

The Menu down the left-hand side will help you to navigate to other parts of the site. The front page displays an introduction, Latest News items and the Teaching / Tourney Schedule for the current week.

If you see \"Guest User\" in the top right-hand corner, that means you need to register on the site in order to be able to take full advantage of what it offers. Just click on Register underneath, provide your details. You need to be registered and logged on to use certain parts of the time.

Changing Time Settings
The way this site works, times should be displayed to you in your own local time. For this to work, we need to know your Time Zone and Daylight Savings settings. Times are stored on the site in GMT/UTC and if you do not specify these settings, that is what you will see. For times to be displayed in your local time, you also need to be registered on the site and logged into the Site.

BabelFish Yahoo Babelfish is an automatic translation facility which will translate this Site into a number of different languages. Please be aware, however, that Bridge has a fairly technical and non-standard vocabulary so some of the translation might seem a little weird. Also, since the whole of the page is translated (ie: including some of the programming code), some of the pages will not display properly and/or may not function properly if viewed in anything other than English.
