From the New England Bridge Association:

From the 199'er Sectional:
The 199'er Sectional held in Stamford on May 5th, was a great success, with 77 total tables in play.  

Renee Clift did an outstanding job of putting this all together.  She had great assistance from Joe Grill and Karen Barrett as well.  But this was her baby and she nurtured it from the very beginning.  There were a lot of players with less than 5 points.  Indeed, one man who said it was the first time he played cards with 13 cards in his hand.  He had been playing exclusively online.  This was the first tournament for a lot of players as well and I hope we can entice them to continue coming to our games. 
 
There were many smiles.  The venue was cheery, bright and very well run.  Thanks to all.

Sectional, STaC and Unit-wide Game Results

All of these results will be links to the ACBL Live website.  STaC results will also be a direct link to the ACBL.  

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.
