Monthly Medal

 

Monthly Medals are awarded to the best performed pairs over a calendar month for each of our master-pointed sessions. Currently this means that we have Monday Monthly Medals and Friday Monthly Medals on offer. To qualify for a particular medal you and your partner must play at least three sessions in a calendar month. No substitutes are allowed. If you play more than three sessions your three best percentage scores will be used. By the way, there aren't any actual medals. Instead, there is a stylish certificate you can frame (to view it, click on the winners' names) and you and your partner get bonus masterpoints. It's not just the Monthly Medallists that get bonus points - over half of the eligible pairs will receive some fraction of a green point. Find out if your partnership has collected any bonus masterpoints by clicking on the "Mon" and "Fri" hotspots to see that session's monthly masterpoints report.
