The 2018 Rising Stars Sectional, Saturday and Sunday March 10 & 11, is open to all players with less than 500 master points. The Sectional location is The Kirby School in Santa Cruz, in Harvey West Park near Costco. This fun tournament is organized for newer players; even those who have never played in a sectional before will find games for their level.
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.
The 6PM lessons on Wednesday review and reinforce the basic conventions covered last year. Besides the lecture, there's handouts and quizzes to sharpen your game.
The game is open to pairs whose total masterpoints are less than 200. This allows advancing players to mentor newer players.
