For partners or teammates contact Wayne Burt at A terrific lineup of events has been scheduled for the entire week, including the return of the very popular Super Point Pairs games.

The detailed results are here. The high finishers can be seen here.

This just in: Online registration for the Monster Knockout is now available here. Please sign up to make the planning easier. Incidentally, "bracketed" means that the participants will be divided into groups of nine to sixteen teams with similar masterpoints. Each team will play only teams in its group (bracket). "Not seeded" means that the opponents within the bracket will be chosen randomly, not 1 vs. 16, 2 vs. 15, etc.

There will be many educational opportunities in Nashua. On Saturday morning Bob Bertoni and a few veteran knockout players will provide tips on "Winning Knockout Teams."

The Monster Knockout on Saturday and Sunday will use preset boards in the top bracket in all four rounds. The hand records for this bracket will be available through the "Tournament Results" 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 June 4, is certainly incomplete, especially for the later months. 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 list of players who achieved a new rank in the month of May are listed here. The lists for previous months are available through the "Member Achievements" tab at left.

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.

Every month begins with a set of emails from District Director Mark Aquino congratulating the New England players who advanced in rank during the previous month. Some of the replies for the last two months can be viewed here.

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.

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.
