    Facebook Unit 124 Updates

    This is a new event for Unit 124. All clubs are invited to participate. Finish in the top half of qualifiying games for your strata (Opne 2500/500) and qualify for the finals week in October.  Pays more than STaCs and is run at your club.  For more details, check out the Progressive Sectional Flyer.

    The Unit Wide Championship Pairs Game resumes Tuesday January 16, 2018 with Tuesday Morning games at Anderson, the CBC and the NKy Bridge Club participating. This is a Unit sanctioned game (and not run under the usual club sanction). Earn extra masterpoints (63% sectional rated black points). Master Points for overall results are awarded according to the top % game finishers across all (3) participating sites. (Note to club managers the ACBL fees are $2.25 per table for the UWCG). The UWCG will run every third Tuesday Morning each month (12 times per year). There will be one stratification plan across all three participating games for the entire calendar year. The stratification plan might be different from the usual strats used by the club game.
