    Pacific Southwest Regional

    Also known as the San Diego Regional, this event will be held April 14-20, 2014 at the Town and Country Resort Hotel. It is held during Easter each year and Easter occurs late this year! San Diego is a World Class destination due to its excellent climate, beaches, world renowned Zoo, plentiful restaurants and shopping! There will be outstanding programs for newcomers, intermediates, and advanced players so plan on coming. For complete information, visit the Tournament website:pacificsouthwestregional.com for details. District 22 will again be showing off its new tables, table markers, boards, cards, stanchions, and supplies as in Palm Springs.


    Platinum Life Master

    Last month, the Grand Life Masters in D22 were featured. This month we will feature the Platinum Life Masters. To achieve the Platinum Life Master rank in ACBL, players must have over 10,000 masterpoints and >2000 colored point requirements, including >750 Gold and >100 Platinum. There are now 10 Platinum Life Masters in the D22 area, listed alphabetically below. Some of these will be future Grand Life Masters and all of them will likely be in San Diego for the Regional in April. So if you want to play against any of these Platinum or Grand Life Masters (from last month's list), come to San Diego to play against one of these bridge legends!
