The North American Bridge Championships have begun in Toronto. The detailed results can be found here. The Daily Bulletins can be read here.The list of high finishers is posted here.

National Champs! On Sunday Barry Bragin's team won Flight A of the Grand National Teams. Congratulations to Barry, Weiling Zhao, Gary Miyashiro, Michael Hess, Susan Smith, and Mike Smith.

A new tab has been added at the left: "Tips for Tournaments." It contains links to short articles about playing in tournaments sponsored by District 25. Two of the articles are new. One serves as an introduction to playing in Regional Tournaments. The other concerns the new Continuous Victory Point Scales that will be used in some Swiss events. 

Each time that you advance in rank, at the end of the month you will receive an email from District Director Mark Aquino congratulating you. A sampling of the replies for the last two months can be viewed here.

Fourteen New Englanders became Life Master in June. They – and the other players who earned a new rank in June – are listed here. The lists for previous months are available through the "Member Achievements" tab at left.

At the national tournament in the Spring the ACBL holds a special championship called the North American Pairs (NAP for short). Each district may send representatives in three categories—A=Open; B=Under 2500 Masterpoints; C=Under 500, Non-Life Master. The district will hold its qualifying tournaments in the fall. Players who participate in these tournaments must qualify at a special club game during June, July, or August.

The webmaster has asked New England's club owners/managers to provide a list of the qualifying games that have been scheduled. The responses can be seen here. This list, which includes all games reported to through July 20, is certainly incomplete, especially for August. As new games are scheduled, the list will be updated. It is always a good idea to check with the person who runs the game.

The latest letter from NEBC President Bob Bertoni contains very important information. You can read it here.

The standings of the Best in Class awards can be viewed here. The charts include points won through the Cape tournaments. Some results in the Flight A GNT may need slight adjustments.

District Director Mark Aquino's report from the Spring NABC in Kansas City can be read here.

Minutes: Carolyn Weiser, District 25's secretary, has provided minutes for the most recent meeting of the Executive Committee, the body that makes the most important decisions about the course of bridge in New England. You can read them here. The minutes for the latest Board of Delegates meeting are here.

Minutes from all recent meetings as well as lists of members of the Executive Committee and the Board of Delegates can always be found under the "Officers & Admin." tab at left.

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.

District 25 is definitely social. To keep up with the bridge news and gossip in New England check out our Facebook (NEBridge) page or follow us on Twitter (@NE_Bridge) or both. Twitter is very easy and non-threatening; for instructions on how to use it, just email

New England Youth Bridge, Inc. has been working hard to showcase this great game to the video-game set. They urgently need our help. Details can be read here.

We strive to keep the website informative and easy to navigate.  Please  “Contact Us” if you have any questions or suggestions regarding District 25, the site, or anything else.
