Ifti Baqai made Grand Life Master! Ifti was District 23 leading point winner last year. I'll have a complete write-up when I get to a real computer.

Results from the Santa Clarita 'Swiss' sectional may not be posted to the big ACBL computer in the sky, or in Memphis, by January 6th. While the results are final, they are on ACBL Live and detailed results are on this website. The boss computer rejected the report and I can not resend it until I get home. Sorry, I guess I'm not the geek I thought I was. 

You can see detail results from the section in the 'RESULTS CALENDAR' of this website.

A Message from District Director Kevin Lane

Welcome to District 23 of the American Contract Bridge League.  District 23 is one of 25 Districts of the ACBL.  District 23 includes all of Los Angeles County.  The District is divided into nine geographical areas.  They are:  Pomona-Covina; Glendale-Verdugo; Santa Clarita-Antelope Valley, Long Beach; Pasadena-San Gabriel Valley; San Fernando Valley, West Los Angeles, Downey-Whittier, and Torrance-South Bay.  The District is governed by the Association of Los Angeles County Bridge Units (ALACBU).  ALACBU meets three times a year at our local regional tournaments.

Using the features of this site, a person can find out about anything happening with bridge in Los Angeles and throughout the ACBL.  You can find Regional and Sectional tournaments, local bridge clubs, bridge instruction, special events like the Grand National Teams, North American Pairs and Sectional Tournaments at Clubs.  Our award-winning bridge newspaper, The Southern California Bridge News, can also be accessed from this site.
