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.
