Mid-Atlantic STaC success


The Mid-Atlantic's fifth annual Sectional Tournament at Clubs, with all proceeds used to
supplement player hospitality at North American Bridge Championships, was a resounding success on Dec. 8-14.

Last year's tournament was a record-breaker, and this year's surpassed that one.
Some numbers: There were 7,412 participants, 4,638 of whom won masterpoints. There were 3,486
tables at 143 clubs, and 9,858.68 silver points were awarded.

After all the bills are paid, around $10,000 is expected to go into the NABC funds shared by
Districts 6 and 7. Southerners, for whatever reason, were the biggest supporters of the event: There were
3,161 players from District 7, compared with 1,885 from District 6. Further, a great deal of the
event's success is owed to the 1,327 participants from District 10, the Mid-South. Those players fared
quite well in the masterpoint race (see below).

Participants at the Summer 2005 NABC in Atlanta will benefit from the proceeds, just as those at the
Summer 2002 tournament at Washington did.
