BridgeBase Online Operators

The National Viewgraph Unit requires BBO operators to assist during events such as the SFOB, Australian Team Playoffs, the GCC, the ANOT, the VCC, the ANC, the SNOT and the GNOT. See below for a list of events in your state.  Consult the ABF Calendar for exact dates and venues. Working as a BBO operator is now a paid position and full training will be provided prior to the event.

If you are interested and able to help out at any time during these championships, please contact Traian Chira (from Victoria) or Ray Ellaway (from Queensland) at vugraph@abf.com.au.
