North American Pairs (NAP)

Masterpoints are 50/50 red/black at 81.8% sectional rating.  AB and C level winners who qualify may move on to district and finally national championships!  Good luck to all.  Check schedule for the dates.

Second Thursday I/N Mentor Night Change

Due to popular request the format of the 2nd Thursday Night of the month I/N Mentor game is changing.  To make it more of a mentoring experience less boards will be played to allow more time to discuss the hands and no master points will be awarded. 

Looking forward to seeing our regulars on this night and all the newcomers. 

Have a great time everyone!

If you are interested in playing in the second Thursday 6:30PM I/N Mentor Game please email: bridgementorgroup@gmail.com
