The complete text of NEBC President Bob Bertoni's latest letter to New England's bridge players can be viewed here.

Winners Boards: publishes photos of the winners of every strat in every event of every tournament sponsored by the district. Sad to say, the pages that contained the photos for 2014 and the first half of 2015 were lost in last summer's hardware catastrophe. However, the pages for all tournaments beginning with Hyannis in 2015 are available. The indexes have now been reconstructed.They are both available in the "Tournament Results" tab at left. The index by player can also be reached here. The index by tournament, date, and event is here. Please notify if you find any mistakes or want to submit a photo. It is never too late.

New England's most popular event, the Ocean State Regional in Warwick, RI, is just around the corner. It begins on Tuesday, August 30, and ends on Sunday, September 4. The flyer can be viewed here.

The expert panel on Wednesday will consist of Phyllis Chase, Joyce Regan, and John Malley. Phyllis will also present the lecture on Friday morning. The title is "Bidding after partner rebids 1NT."

Have you asked anyone to play in Saturday night's Pro-Am game yet? Each pair must have at least one non-Life Master with less than 500 masterpoints. This event is a great time to teach, learn, make new friends, and have fun.

The ACBL sponsors three national pairs championships at the "grass roots" level. Flight A of the North American Pairs is open to all. Flight B is limited to players with up to 2500 masterpoints. Flight C is for 0-500 Non-Life Masters. The Conditions of Contest can be found here.

Each district is allowed to send three or four teams to compete in the finals at the spring NABC in Kansas City in March. District 25 will select its representatives at tournaments this fall. Flight A will be held in Watertown, MA, Oct. 8-9. Flight B and C will both be in Mansfield, MA. Flight B will be on Nov. 12-13. Flight C will be on Nov. 12. Winners will receive cash stipends to play in the event in KC.

The first step is to qualify at a special club game. The list of the games currently scheduled is here. This list, which was last updated on July 21, is definitely incomplete. It will be updated throughout the summer as more games are scheduled.

85 New England bridge players achieved a new rank in July. The list, which includes new Grand Life Master, Victor King, is posted here.

Every month District Direct Mark Aquino congratulates via email players who achieve a new rank. You can read some replies he received in August here. Bonus: a rant (complete with selfie) from the webmaster.

The Best in Class Awards are back! District 25 will once again honor the player in each masterpoint category who earns the most points in the eight events sponsored by the district. The standings through the Summer Regional in Nashua can be viewed here.
