D19 held the district finals for the North American Pairs at our fall regional in Leavenworth.  The following pairs will be representing us this spring at the National Finals in Louisville:

Best of luck to all and thanks to all who participated in this event.

It’s summer and that means it is time to play in your local club and qualify for the North American Pairs. In order to qualify, you need to play in a qualifying game at a local bridge club. For those of you on vacation, you can qualify at a club NOT in D19, but if you do, please let the NAP Coordinator (Ann Romeo) know. You can also qualify at an online NAP qualifying game.

If you qualify, you are eligible to play in the District finals, which will take place at our fall Regional in Leavenworth. And if you do well at the District finals (D19 is allowed to send 3 A pairs, 4 B pairs and 4 C pairs), you will get the chance to represent D19 at the National NAP finals this spring in Louisville, KY (March 13-14 for Flight A, and March 23-24 for Flights B and C). And if you do REALLY well, you’ll win a stipend to help defray the cost of the trip. For more information,  email the NAP coordinator at [email protected].
