Two D19 Regionals in October!

If you’re looking for gold (but might settle for red), this is your month!

District 19 is hosting not one but two Regionals for your playing pleasure.

First, Capital City Regional is being held from Monday, October 16 to Sunday October 22 in Washington’s capital, Olympia. Read all about it in the tournament flyer.

As the tournament gets underway, this website will host a specific Olympia Regional page with results, photos and a link to McBruce’s ever-popular Daily Bulletins, henceforth only available on-line. Please go to our D19 Tournaments page for more information.

Next, the Western Canada Regional, in Whistler BC, will run from October 30 to November 5. Info can be found in this flyer.

Toronto NABC hotel rooms offer

Anne Farmer of Seattle Nextgenbridge is holding 2 extra rooms for the NABC in Toronto at the Intercontinental- host hotel.  These are reserved as triples- but whoever needs them can adjust down or up. One is from July 26-31 and the other July 27-31. First come, first served.

It’s apparently difficult to find rooms in Toronto as there’s also a medical convention being held at the same time. Anyone who is interested should contact Anne ASAP at (206)441-7244 or email her at  seattlenextgenbridge@gmail.com

Victoria Regional now in progress!

The 2017 Victoria Regional is currently being held at the downtown Conference Centre, adjoining the Empress Hotel.

Please go to the  2017 Penticton Regional Archive for access to scores, daily bulletins and photos as well as the tournament flyer.

The Tournament also features a comprehensive educational program, with an emphasis on enriching the tournament experience for bridge players who are “New to Duplicate”. We hope these players will find that tournaments are an exciting educational opportunity as well as a competitive adventure.

Kirkwood Trophy final standings for 2016

The Kirkwood Trophy is awarded by District 19 each year to the resident of District 19 who wins the most masterpoints.

This year’s winner is David Westfall of Spokane, WA.

Only open Regionals in Washington State and British Columbia are counted, and as with other masterpoint races one must be an ACBL member to qualify.

Standings are calculated at the conclusion of each Regional and placed in the Wrapup edition, as well as in the first Bulletin of the next Regional.

The current list reflects the final 2016 standing after November’s Whistler Regional. It can be found under D19 Tournaments in the top menu or accessed directly by clicking here.
