Rising Stars 500/NLM Sectional

The 2014 Rising Stars 500/NLM Sectional is open to all Non-Life Master players with 0-499 master points. Mark your calendars with the dates --- March 15 & 16, 2014. Silver Points awarded for all events, which makes it a terrific opportunity to win these elusive points. This year there is a new site for the Sectional, The Kirby School in Santa Cruz, in Harvey West Park near Costco. The sectional flyer may be accessed on our website by clicking here.

This year's honorees are Celia Z. Hait, Irene Hashfield's mother who taught her to play bridge and Jack Haeger a long-time member of Unit 550 who was a partner to many of the current players at the SCBC.

Complete results for the sectional may be found here when the results are available, typically within an hour of the end of a session.
