D22 Board Decisions

At the end of 2013, preceding the Palm Springs tournament, the Board of Directors decided to terminate our relationship with a sub-contractor and purchase our own tables, teams playing boards and cards, bidding boxes, table markers, stanchions, etc. These items are stored in San Diego. At the end of 2014, preceding the Palm Springs tournament, the Board of Directors made an additional decision to buy enough new sets of boards and cards that would allow us to provide all the necessary duplicate boards for the pairs events. We hope these decisions and actions not only help us financially long term, but also allows D22 to be in charge of all five of the D22 regionals and improve the quality & experience for all those who attend our tournaments!

Palm Springs Regional

The 2014 Palm Springs Regional was a resounding success, with lots of free coffee, masterpoints, and complimentary $2 coupons. The table count was 3801, 190 tables more than 2013, and continues to be the third largest regional in all of ACBL! Kudos to our Tournament Chairpersons, Mick Riccio and Nancy Erickson!

Riverside Regional

The 2015 Riverside Regional will return to its regular time slot February 2-8, at the newly refurbished Convention Center. The three bridge hotels, Marriott, Hyatt, and the historic Mission Inn are all getting booked up so make your reservations soon. Teri Atkinson, our tournament chairperson along with co-chair Ken Monzingo always provide excellent tournament hospitality, awards, and a full lecture program. There are many fine eateries nearby. Maritha Pottenger and her popular Bridge Boot Camp will again be there all week for the newer and advancing players.

New D22 "Blog" Site

We are trying out a site where are district members can post questions, comments, complaints, read about conventions etc. Since this is new and we haven't done this before, there will undoubtedly be many glitches. Hopefully you will find it of some use. To access it there is a button along the top menu bar labelled "D22 Blog Site".

GNT dates for 2015

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.

What declarer does not know can hurt him | Jeff Lehman

Recognizing that declarer does not necessarily know what you know is a talent that can be used favorably by a good defender.  Here was an example where I was outdefended by an opponent at the other table of a club Swiss team event.  (Board 17, Reyim Swiss of January 29, directions reversed.) The opponents conducted […]
