Please, check the â€Œclub news â€Œor call ahead to verify the playing site for any special event played at a time other than a Monday evening.
Bridge at the Village Special Events
Club Appreciation Team ChampionshipÂ§
* Club Championship: Masterpoint awards are larger than
the awards at a normal club tournament. The larger
awards sometimes attract more players. When that
happens, both the award size and the number of places
earning awards increases.
â€ ICCG: Many ACBL clubs play the same boards during the
same session. Aggregated scoring assigns stratified winners
as though all participants had played in a single event.
Overall winners can earn very large masterpoint awards.
Local club winners earn increased masterpoint awards for
â€¡ STaC: Sectional Tournament at Clubs. These special games
award sectional rated ACBL silver masterpoints to local
club winners. An â€œaggregationâ€ process treats players from
many clubs playing during the same session as though
they actually played in a much larger game including
all the tables at all the clubs playing at the same time
on the same day.
Â§ Club Appreciation Championship: Masterpoint awards are
larger than the awards at a normal club tournament.
Team championships award Gold masterpoints
normally awarded only at regional tournaments and
NABCs. The larger awards sometimes attract more
players. When that happens, both the award size and
the number of places earning awards increases.
Special events offer advantages a normal club game cannot deliver. Different special events offer different special benefits. Typical advantages include the following:
- Larger masterpoint awards for winners
- Silver, Red, or Gold masterpoint awards normally available only at tournaments
- Hand analysis booklets
- Charitable donations
- Participation in a larger, multiple site game
