Presidents Message

A belated Happy New Year to you all. 2019 was a good year for Connecticut Bridge. We had great turnout for our Sectionals, driven by our new players. The response to a survey conducted by Director Joe Grill highlighted the friendly atmosphere at all our games. The Board is working hard to find ways to make our tournaments even more user-friendly. Please feel free to contact me with any suggestions –

Congratulations to the winners of the 2019 UWL 1st Place - Four Guys: Doug Thompson, Ron Kahan, Scott Hutchason and Ken Shafarman. 20 Teams participated. Many thanks to Renee Clift for developing and running this program. It was great to see new partnerships being formed. I hope everyone enjoyed the event. Our mentoring program is continuing. It was well received last year, but we need more help from the great players in Connecticut to guide our less experienced, but very enthusiastic players.

Lastly, but certainly not least, Congratulations to Richard DeMartino for several amazing milestones in 2019. He earned over 1000 masterpoints, to bring his grand total to 30,000 masterpoints. Over his bridge career Rich has won one World Title, 5 National Titles and 292 Regional Tournaments. And Rich gives back to our unit by his active participation in the mentoring program and many classes. Rich won the Governors Cup in 2019 (we have no record how many sectional tournaments he has won, let’s just say, a lot!)

Starting in 2018, New England regionals, Connecticut sectionals, and unit-wide games will be stratified based on AVERAGE masterpoints.
Results from our Sectionals will be available on the ACBLLive site by the morning the day after the game. STaCs and special games that are handled through the ACBL will take a little longer. But they should be accessible far faster than before.
