From Diane Henson, via Steve Gaynor, some news alerts about upcoming events and games. Plenty happening, folks! Hope you are able to enjoy these fine bridge opportunities!
GNT QUALIFYING GAMES
Only a few weeks left to qualify before the district finals on March 7-8. Check out your local clubs for their finaly qualifying games.
People can compete in four flights:
Flight A: 2000-5000
Flight B: Life Masters up to 2000
Flight C: Non-Life Masters up to 500 points
If you qualify in a local qualifying game, you are eligible to play in the district finals. The winning teams from each flight will earn the right to compete at the summer NABC in Washington DC in the GNT finals, and receive a subsidy for their trip, too! With the flighting, you do not have to be an elite player to win! Just beat your peers. Qualifying games are sectionally rated, 1/2 red, 1/2 black points. Overall winners at the district finals earn gold points!
A concurrent Swiss Team Sectional is also available this weekend, if you prefer to play in that event. Need teammates? Contact Tony Ames and he can help.
