The latest report from District Director Mark Aquino can be read here or through the tab at left.

Mark Aquino congratulates by email everyone who advances in rank. A sampling of the replies for the last two months can be viewed here.

When you arrive at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Warwick for the Ocean State Regional (August 29-31), look for the Welcome Table. Ocean State bridge players will be stationed there to field questions about the tournament and the environs. Also, for the first time ever, you will be able to festoon your convention card holder with a cool domed sticker with the tournament's logo on it.

The experts' panel has also been announced. The lunch break on Thursday, August 31, will feature Lew Gamerman, Bob Lavin, and Harold Feldheim fielding questions about the hands played in the morning pairs session. On Friday morning at 9:15 Adam Parrish will defend his contention that “Pass is not a four-letter word.”

July saw 114 New England bridge players earn a new rank. They are listed here. The lists for previous months are available through the "Member Achievements" tab at left.

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. 

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.

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.
