Helen Shields Rookie-Master Game - Tuesday April 17 2018: This event is designed to introduce newer players to duplicate bridge. Each pair must have at least one person (aka the "Rookie") with less than 50 ACBL masterpoints. Contact Ron Duplisea if you want to be paired up with a Rookie, or if you are a Rookie that wants to be paired with a Master (someone with greater than 50 masterpoints, or equivalent experience.) Note - use of conventions limited to ACBL Yellow Card. Two years ago we had 17 tables in this event - can we beat that record ???
