Diane Henson does a marvelous job with an "Upcoming Events" schedule for Minnesota. Please see below for the wide variety of bridge activities that are available in the coming months.
Of particular importance is qualifying for North American Pairs. The NAP is held at every Spring NABC. In 2018, this will be Philadelphia; a fine site for a nationals.
NAP presents a super opportunity to compete at the national level, in your own flight against your peers. You receive a subsidized trip in addition to the opportunity to win a national title!
Please note that there are still many dates available for games, and in different locations. But - the qualifying period ends at the end of August! If you want to play and have not yet qualified, you need to do so soon!
This is a great event and loads of fun!
Of course, many other excellent bridge events coming up, too. Avail yourself of as many as possible!
