Many District 19 players have never heard of the Kirkwood Trophy. Yet, they are all eligible to compete for this annual award. No need to register, simply attending one (or more) of the five annual District 19 Regionals will get you on the list. Of course, if you want to win, you had better do well in all five.
You can learn more about the Kirkwood Trophy by visiting our dedicated page on the website. Just click here. Or you can use the handy search box on the top left of the page (type in Kirkwood). You can also look under D19 Tournaments in the top menu.
Canadian bridge has lost a significant member and friend with the passing of Peter Herold. Peter died peacefully in his sleep after a long, optimistic and courageous battle with cancer.
Peter was a part of the lives of many Canadian bridge players. He was taught to play bridge at a young age by his grandmother, and always loved the game. He became a passionate, skilled, and highly regarded duplicate player.
His significant accomplishments included victories in the Canadian National Team Championships, the Canadian Open Pairs Championships, and the Australian National Open Pairs.
His sense of humour and love of life will be greatly missed by his wife, Alana, and his many friends. A big party will be planned at a future date in Victoria, to commemorate his passing.
This month, you have the opportunity to participate in not only one, but two D19 Regionals.
The Tri-Cities Regional runs from October 21 to 27. It’s being held in Pasco, Wa, some 200 miles SE of Seattle. Follow this link for complete information on the tournament.
A week later, October 28 to November 3, it’s time for the Whistler Regional, in BC, about 1.5 hours driving distance northward from Vancouver, BC. Go to our D19 Tournaments page for the flyer. More details will become available as the tournament draws near.
