JUNE 25 - STaC Game (Silver Points)
PRE-ARRANGED PARTNERSHIP RECOMMENDED
DIRECTOR CANNOT PLAY
After our first two qualifying sessions the Wachusett Bridge Club has qualified 36 players to go on to the District 25 Finals in November in Mansfield, MA.
The question now is, "Are any of you who have not yet qualified desirous of doing so?" If so, please let me know and we will hold at least one more qualifying game. If not - and quite candidly - the ACBL charges us an extra $40 for each such session, so I'd rather not hold too many more if no one remains interested in them. But if even a pair or two still wish to qualify we will hold another such event or two in either July or August.
For those who have qualified I can't emphasize enough the opportunity that you now have. Mansfield is about 50 minutes away (sort of around the corner from Gillette Stadium). You will only be playing against players with up to 500 masterpoints, and my honest appraisal is that most of those players are no more advanced than you, but have simply been at the game longer. Last year the event consisted of 14.5 tables and the winning pair received 10.0 masterpoints. They also received a subsidy to continue to the NAP Finals at the Spirng Nationals. In that event there were 26 tables and the ultimate winner received 40 masterpoints - half gold and half red. In 2019 the Spring Nationals will be in Memphis.
As a reminder, one must be an ACBL member to play in Mansfield. Players who were members on the day they qualified will automatically be shown in the ACBL computers as OK'd to play in the Finals. Non-members must bring their qualification slip to Mansfield even if having joined ACBL between now and then.
Come and enjoy our well-lit, modern club area at the Holden Senior Center. We hold the only ACBL-sanctioned and regularly-scheduled game in Central Massachusetts for players with less than 300 masterpoints.
