Each year, ACBL units present the Ace of Clubs and Mini-McKenney awards to unit members. The Ace of Clubs certificates are awarded to players in each unit (one per ranking level) who earn the most black (club-level) masterpoints during the previous year. The Mini-McKenney medals are awarded to players in each unit (one per ranking level) who earn the most masterpoints (any color, including online/colorless) during the previous year. Within Unit 446, it's traditional to announce the winners at the Sweetheart Sectional.
This year, the announcement was made on February 27th, and unit president Tim White was on hand to congratulate the winners on their achievement.
The 2015 winners of the Ace of Clubs award for Unit 446 are Tony Marshall, Chien Yuan Chang, Tony Alberts, Mary Greeniaus, Victor Magruder, Paul Evanoff, Karen Hudesman, Diane Felure, Mike Christensen, Alain Schreiber, Stanford Christie, Barbara Nist, and Patrick Dunn.
