ACBL District 5


135 District members have not yet won any masterpoints.

Rock & Roll Regional!

The Cleveland Rock & Roll Regional was a great success as players continue to come back to face to face bridge. We had 411 tables in play so play is picking up.

Phil Becker, Beachwood, OH, and his long time partner Fleur Howard, Gates Mills, OH, were the overall masterpoint winners with 83.02 masterpoints along with their teammates from the Dayton area. The Northern Ohio Unit enjoyed its home field advantage and it had six of the top ten masterpoint winners!

Jim and Sue Knirsch from Chagrin Falls, OH did a great job chairing the tournament. This was their first time as chairs of a Regional, but we hope it will not be their last!
