Unit 147, Washington Bridge League
Unit Round Robin
WBL Unit Round Robin

The annual WBL Round Robin will begin on March 15, 2021. There will be two flights, A/X (Open) and
B/C (0-2500). This is a fun social event which can be played virtually. The entry fee is $50.00 for flight A/X
and $40.00 for flight B/C. Entries must be submitted by March 12, 2021. This is a great opportunity for
members throughout District 6 to participate in an event with fellow bridge players throughout the District. 
We invite all units in District 6 to participate.  We invite players in all District 6 Units to play!
First place in each flight will win their entry fee back!

Round Robin Coordinators Steve Robinson and Chuck Dearolf will gladly help you to form or join a team
of four to six players to play in the A/X or B/C Flights. In both flights, you'll play two 12-board matches
against each of the other teams in your league. B/C eligible teams (or players) may play in both flights if
they want to.

League play to determine qualifiers for the knockout portion of the event begins March 15; the end date
will be determined taking into account the number of matches to be played.
The deadline for entries is March 12, 2021. (Late entries may be accepted to balance out the event.)
Send team rosters Steve Robinson at robinswr@erols.com (open flight) or Chuck Dearolf at
dearolf@rcn.com (B/C Flight).

Checks should be made payable to the Washington Bridge League. Entries should include a team roster,
designated Captain and contact information for the Captain. You can mail your check and entry to Steve
Robinson, 2891 S. Abingdon St. Apt A-1, Arlington VA 22206-1329, or to Chuck Dearolf, 7131 Swansong
Way, Bethesda, MD 20817-1252.

Leagues normally consist of 5-7 teams with a playoff after completion of round robin play. The end date
for the RR phase will be determined from the number of matches to be played. All matches will be
conducted virtually. In-house matches are permissible if all players on both teams assent.
In Flight A (Open) there will also be an X-strat (the master point limit for X will be determined based on
the points held by the teams). Flight B is limited to players with 0-2500 masterpoints. There will be a C-
strat within the B/C event (the master point limit for C will be determined based on the points held by the
teams). Adjustments may be made to the masterpoint limits to foster competitive leagues.

Don’t have teammates? Don’t have a partner? Don’t worry. Contact the people listed above. We will
make every effort to find a team for you. There are many good reasons to participate and play against
other bridge players in a civil and social atmosphere. We hope that all teams who have played this event
and many new teams will play this year.

Any questions about Flight A should be directed to Steve Robinson. Steve can be reached by email at
robinswr@erols.com or by phone at 703-379-4371. Questions about Flight B should be directed to
Chuck Dearolf at dearolf@rcn.com or 617-412-9151.

The Conditions of Contest will be posted once we know the number and composition of the teams.
