Our Next Sectional Tournament

Our Palm Coast Summer Sectional Tournament is coming soon, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, August 10th, 11th, and 12th.  We will be asking for your help with preparations and attendance.  Our May tournament had a good turnout of 499er players and a so-so turnout for Open players; we hope everyone will play as often as possible to make this our best tournament ever.

SPREAD THE WORD.  We listened to our members and guests and changed the Swiss format back to two sections; Stratified Open Swiss and Stratified 499er Swiss, so let's have a nice turnout for this event.  It was too late for the Sunshine Bridge news to change the ad, but the ACBL approved the change, so let everybody know from Daytona, St. Augustine, Jacksonville, and beyond that we have made this change back to the Swiss format you requested.

Sylvia Caviggia, our Chairperson, is busy getting ready and Jeff Claus, our Partnership Chairperson, is waiting to assist you with your partnership needs.

This week, we are back to charity club championship games.
