North American Pairs

In June, July, and August, about half of our games will be club-level qualifying games for the North American Pairs. All of these games award half-red, half-black masterpoints at about triple the level of regular games (82% sectional rating).

Players who qualify in at least one of these games (look for a “Q” next to your name on the results) may play in the New England District Finals (Flight A: October 8–9, Watertown; Flight B: November 12–13, Mansfield; Flight C: November 12, Mansfield). The top three or four pairs in each flight will qualify for the North American Finals at the 2017 Spring North American Bridge Championships in Kansas City. The top two pairs in each flight will receive subsidies to attend the NABC.

(Note that most of our non-NAP games in June, July, and August are Club Championship or Special Fund games, which award masterpoints at 64% sectional rating—about 2½ times the level of regular games.)

The annual Worldwide Bridge Contests will be held on Friday evening, June 3, and Saturday afternoon, June 4, at clubs around the world, including Westwood. It’s your chance for a worldwide top and recognition for your big games. These games award sectional rated half red/half black masterpoints at clubs. District-wide winners will earn extra masterpoints. Commentary by the famous Canadian player, writer, and coach, Eric Kokish, will be available after each game. Westwood’s game times are 7:15 p.m. on Friday, June 3, and noon on Saturday, June 4.

The Longest Day Monday, June 20
The Longest Day Monday, June 20

Join us for the ACBL’s fourth annual The Longest Day fundraising event supporting Alzheimer’s disease care and research! In the last three years bridge players have donated more than $1 million to help fight Alzheimer’s in both the United States and Canada.

At Westwood, we’ll celebrate The Longest Day on Monday, June 20, with bridge from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. In addition to our usual noon and 7:15 p.m. games, we’ll have fast pairs games at a.m. and 3:30 p.m. The fast pairs games will be paced at 16 minutes per three-board round, so we’ll play a full 24-board game in about 2¼ hours.

All four games will be charity games (64% sectional rating), with $1 per player per session going to the Alzheimer’s Association. Additional donations are welcome, either at the game or online.

Summer Sectional Tournament at Clubs June 27–July 3

Please join us for the New England (except Connecticut) Summer Sectional Tournament at Clubs (STaC). All Westwood games Monday through Sunday, June 27–July 3, will be STaC pair games. All masterpoints will be silver at 82% sectional rating (about triple the awards for regular club games) with extra awards for the top scores across all participating clubs. Overall awards will be posted at <http://www.acbl.org/tournaments/schedule.php?tourid=23672#schedule>.

Grass Roots Fund Month

May is the ACBL’s annual Grass Roots Fund Month, and all Westwood games benefit the Grass Roots Fund.

Masterpoint awards are about 250% of regular games (64% sectional-rated).

The Grass Roots Fund returns all money raised in our New England district to our district to support the two annual “grass roots” events: the Grand National Teams and the North American Pairs. The district uses these funds to run qualifying events and to support district winners in all flights in attending the North American finals.
