2020 Rising Stars Sectional

The 2020 Rising Stars Sectional, Saturday and Sunday March 28 & 29 , is open to all players with less than 500 master points. The tournament is at the Mid-County Senior Center in Capitola. Here's a map. This fun tournament is organized for newer players; even those who have never played in a sectional before will find games at their level.

Co-Chairs Ken Gamble and Carol Avenmarg are putting together another great tournament. There will be terrific snacks and desserts besides an enjoyable tournament experience. The games start at 10A on Saturday and Sunday; The flyer with the complete game schedule and times may be accessed on our website by clicking here.

If you need a partner for pairs or players for your Swiss team, contact John Wesolowski via email or call him at (831) 332-4498.

Patience & Teaching

Trying to teach or give advice during a game is not effective and might even be seen as a violation of ACBL rules (see Law 74.A.2, Etiquette of Word and Action: A player should carefully avoid any remark or action that might cause annoyance or embarrassment to another player or might interfere with the enjoyment of the game.)

  • Don't teach at the table; waiting until the game is over is much more effective
  • Giving advice during the game is bad strategy, typically unwanted and could easily be wrong
  • Talking about a board/result often reaveals details of the board to other players
  • Even well-meaning advice might be taken as criticism, which is unethical, rude and a violation of the Laws

Unit 550 Mission: As the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL) of Santa Cruz County, Unit 550, we promote the game of bridge, support the bridge clubs at the Santa Cruz Bridge Center (SCBC), and provide a pleasant, fun environment for learning and playing bridge.
