In addition to a fun town - Memphis is a great spot for a North American Bridge Championship! And next year - Memphis is the spot for our Spring NABC.
It's also the place where North American Pair contestants can compete against their peers from all over ACBL-land - and perhaps end up THE winner in their field.
Diane Henson, our District 14 coordinator for NAP's has given us a wealth of information about the 2018-2019 North American Pairs. A flyer for the coming season, a fact sheet and District 14's Conditions of Contest are all posted below. Be sure to read through Diane's overview - and check out all the extra info, too!
