It's 2015, and we're excited at seeing you at some of this year's upcoming tournaments.
First up is the Sweetheart Sectional, at Vasa Park from February 13-15. This features our once-a-year 1-session BAM, along with a Swiss and plenty of pairs events.
Next is our Newcomer's Sectional, which is March 7-8 at North Seattle College. This event is specifically held for newer bridge players, and no player who has attained the rank of Life Master is eligible. There are events for everyone here. If you haven't been to a bridge tournament before, this is the one to start with.
Over Memorial Weekend we have our longest tournament of the year: the Knockout Sectional. This year it is Kent Commons from May 22-25. This is a great event to compete as a team; we are offering a two day knockout and a one day board-a-match event.
You can find details on the tournaments at the links above. If you have any questions please let us know.
