STaC

District 16 STaC Week

June 10th – 16th is StaC week! STaC stands for Sectional Tournament at Clubs. Sectional Tournaments at Clubs (STaC) are ACBL tournaments with sectional rating staged at many clubs in a geographical area (in this case District 16) over a period of up to seven days. Events are played at several clubs, and results are transmitted to a central office manned by the director in charge. The director combines the results to determine the winners and overall places for participants. Masterpoints awarded are silver. $9 entry.

Paul Tobias will teach a free lesson on Saturday, June 22 at noon.  Topic: "Counting Your Way to Better Bridge."
