From the Connecticut Bridge Association:

Breaking NOW!         

 Many of our players who have less than 200 points have told us that they need help to improve their game.  Unit 126 is sponsoring a Mentor Program at all its clubs.  The program will enable our newer players to play on a monthly basis with a more experienced partner and have someone with whom they can discuss difficult bidding and playing hands.

The mentors receive the satisfaction of sharing their love for the game and encourages creativity.  Mentors often say that mentoring keeps them sharp and think more about their own game.

   * If you are a life master with at least 500 points, you qualify to be a mentor.  If you are a non-life master with less than 200 points, you can be a mentee. 

   * This program is open to all members of the Connecticut  Bridge Association, Unit 126. 

 * Please check with your local clubs to see if they are participating and what you need to do to sign up.   If you are a club  manager and have questions, please contact Frances Schneider

In October,  we have the last Sectionals of the year.  The first is limited to those players with fewer than 200 Mastrpoints and is held in West Hartford at The Bridge Center on October 14.  The Connecticut Fall sectional will be held in Wethersfield on October 26-28.

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.
