NAP It's time to get your Q. Everyone should be getting serious about qualifying for the North American Pairs at a local club. The qualifying period ends in August. Finals for three flights (Open, 0-2500, and 0-500 Non-Life Master) will be held in Sturbridge on October 11-12. For details click here.

This just in: Four pairs will qualify this year in the C flight! What a great opportunity this is for non-life masters to represent New England in a prestigious national event.

The list of qualifying games that have currently been scheduled can be viewed here. This list, which was last updated on July 21, is NOT official; you should check with your local club owner/manager.
