Partnerships

Need a Partner for one of our BBO Virtual games? Here are some people to contact. They will do their best to put partners together.

  • For partner help in a 99er game, please contact Jim Solomon, lsju63@gmail.com
  • For all other Limited games, contact Jack Phirman, jrphirman@gmail.com
  • For Open games, contact Deb Cameron at debcameron@verizon.net
  • One more option. On tournament day, when you see a tournament listed, click on it and you’ll see the usual tournament registration screen. At the top of the window look for a tab named Partnership Desk. Here is where you can post your name if you are looking for a partner, or see names of others who are seeking a partner.

Note: The following information is not current since Covid and will only apply when we return to face-to-face bridge. Thanks for your patience.

SLO (Monday 12:30 & Friday 12:30):

Please be certain to email Don Alderman directly for all partnership requests for SLO.  He gets your email immediately on his “smart phone.”

Contact Don    dald10@charter.net

He has the group email on his phone and can send your partnership request out immediately.  This could be especially beneficial if it is “last minute.”

When you need a partner and see the group email partner request, if you click on reply or the reverse arrow, no one will see your reply.  You must compose a new email or just call the requestor.

The body of the email needs to include how you wish to be contacted (email, phone, telegraph).  It is desirable to add your mp total or special conventions you like to play.  That way Don merely copies and pastes this information into the group email partner request.

Please do not omit the contact info so that Don does not have to hunt for that information in a previous email or find your email in the sender’s email drop down.  It wastes his time and he may have to send you an email asking for more information, thus causing delay.
