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.

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.
