Palm Springs Regional

Our next Regional is at Palm Springs, the 3rd largest Regional in ACBL! The Westin Hotel location is excellent and draws from the entire region encompassing several Districts! It will begin on Monday Dec 15 and lasts through Sunday Dec 21. The Tournament Manager, Mick Riccio, will again have an exciting Tournament and we hope to come close or even break 4000 tables this year! See you all there!


GNT dates for 1915

GNT final for flights Open/B will be held on April 11-12.

GNT final for flights A/C will be held on May 30-31.

Both events will be held at the Dana Harbor Bridge Center.


Ventura Regional

This Regional had over 1140 tables, up about 17-18% over last year! The Halloween spirit was in evidence all week and many wore great costumes on Halloween Day. Everyone likes the location and for a change, D22 made a slight profit. Congratulations to our Tournament Managers Teri Atkinson and Joe Conti for a Job Well Done!


Intermediate/Newcomer Bootcamp

I/N events were well attended, from around 30-40 people for Reception/free lesson on Monday through all the speakers (20-50 attendees, Tuesday through Saturday) and the free morning classes with Maritha (6-12 attendees, Tu-Sat). Speakers included Kitty Cooper, Lynne Newman, Roy Green, Paul Darin, and Robert Todd. Everyone enjoyed home-made cookies and a number of people asked questions of the "Ask An Expert" representative or got together over dinner to go over hands.
