CHANGE IN COVID VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS - Effective May 15, 2023, tournament sponsors will be responsible for deciding whether Covid-19 vaccination is required for their tournaments. This is per a decision made by the ACBL Board of Directors. Please ensure your vaccination policy is clearly stated on your tournament flier and that you have given a copy of this flier to Bridge Administration for the ACBL website. The ACBL will continue to require Covid-19 vaccinations at the NABCs. A new member survey will be offered in April. (March 14, 2023 eMail).

ACBL Tournament Vaccination Requirements - ACBL Member Survey Results
The Survey results are in. The results suggest strong sentiment for retaining the vaccination requirement for ACBL Tournaments. The ACBL updated its Covid Protocols 30 DEC 2022.
ACBL Introduces LOCAL SECTIONALS - These tournaments replace the previous "downgraded" sectionals. Local Sectionals award Masterpoints at full Sectional Rating; the points are 80% Silver and 20% Black. Local Sectionals may be run by a certified Club Director or Tournament Assistant. This makes a small sectional tournament more affordable by eliminating (large) fees for ACBL Directors. There are additional limitations. ... READ MORE
Louisville NABC Fundraising - The District 11 Board voted unanimously to approve the following fundraising to support the work of the 2024 Louisville NABC Committee:
1) Beginning October 1, 2022 through March 1, 2024, all Regional and Sectional tournaments (but not Sectional Tournaments at Clubs - STaCs) will be assessed a $1 per person surcharge. This includes NLM and progressive tournaments.
2) Clubs wishing to offer special fundraising games may do so during the following weeks:
April 23 - April 29, 2023
3) All funds raised by tournaments and clubs should be sent promptly by check payable to: Louisville 2024 NABC and mailed to: Chuck Fassler, Louisville Bridge Club, 9870 Linn Station Road, Louisville, KY 40223
In normal times, fundraising starts 3 years in advance of the NABC. We are starting 18 months late because of the covid pandemic. Please participate fully and play often. Help the committee raise the funds it needs to provide the welcome everyone should experience at an NABC tournament held in District 11.
