NORTH AMERICAN BRIDGE CHAMPIONSHIPS PLAYING FACE-TO-FACE

Since the pandemic began, all Face-to-Face tournaments have been cancelled, including the North American Bridge Championships (NABC).  The ACBL will resume F2F tournaments later this year and the first post-pandemic NABC will be held in beautiful downtown Austin, Texas.  The ACBL negotiates special rates at the host hotels and other nearby hotels.  Given that this is the first NABC since November 2019, attendance is predicted to be high. If you think you might go, consider making a reservation.  Hotel reservations open JUNE 22 at noon and continue rooms are sold out.  Even if rooms are sold out, you can arrange to be on a waitlist.  For more information go to https://nabc.acbl.org/austin/

The tournament will be hosted at the J W Marriott and the Austin Marriott, one block off of Lady Bird Lake.  There are games every day for all skill levels, from newcomers to professionals.  There are free guest speakers daily.  There is entertainment after most games at night (usually with free refreshments).  There are over thirty miles of walking and hiking trails directly accessible from downtown.  Multiple restaurants are within a four or five block radius.  The Museum district and Texas State Capitol are about nine blocks away and an Austin shuttle can take you there.

We are trying to build a pictorial directory of our members and pictures will only be viewed in the Members Only area..  We will also be able to show your pair's pictures, and those of your opponents, when you view results.  If you don't have a picture on file and you would like it to be or if you don't like the picture that is posted, you have several options to add one.  If you already have a digital picture, you may post it yourself in your account area when you log in or send it to our webmaster, Kent Kraus (link on Home Page).  If you don't have a digital picture and know someone with a digital camera or smartphone, you can have a picture made and email or text it to Kent.  The final option is you can send a hardcopy picture to Kent.  His address is in the phone directory, which may be viewed in the Membership part of the website.  

Pictures help us get to know the names of other members of the club and make it a more enjoyable experience.  We hope you will choose to participate.  If you do not want to have a picture published, please let Kent know and he will add your name to the do not publish list.
