In light of the recent spike in COVID cases, the Board of Directors has decided to cancel the LVBA Sectional originally planned for October 15-17.  We can only hope that next spring’s tournament will be viable.

In the meantime, please find a partner and a team for the upcoming OVER/UNDER 300 Swiss Team game planned for Saturday, October 2, at 1:00 PM.  This will be an online game with similar restrictions to that of the 2019 Swiss event.  Each pair within the 4-person team must have at least one player with fewer than 300 points.  Eligible mentor/mentee pairs are especially encouraged to participate.
