THE "TIM STECKER PLAYER OF THE YEAR" AWARD

 May 23, 2022

The Unit's Player of the Year Award was renamed the "Tim Stecker Player of the Year Award" in honor of our board member and statistician for the award, Tim, who passed away in June, 2020.  The award was suspended due to COVID preventing in-person bridge, but has now been reinstated now that we are back at the tables!.

The award is based on the number of master points earned at our Saturday Unit Games and at our  tournaments (Piedmont Triad NLM Regional and Open Sectional, Greensboro Sectional and Winston Salem Sectional).  In order to win you have to be a member of Unit 169 and play in at least eight Unit Games.  The person with the most master points at the end of the year wins our Unit’s most prestigious "Tim Stecker Player of the Year Award."

DISTRICT 7

VACCINATION AND MASK POLICY

May 1, 2022

District 7 is following the ACBL policy of requiring all tournament attendees to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. “Fully vaccinated” means that it has been at least two weeks since you received the second Pfizer or Moderna shot, or since you received a single-dose vaccine. Please do not plan to attend any District 7 regional or sectional unless you can provide proof of vaccination. No exceptions will be allowed. In addition, District 7 encourages, but does not require, each eligible individual to get the booster shot when it becomes available to you.

Whether at the NABC or at a sectional or regional, attendees should be prepared by bringing masks to the tournament playing areas in the event the Community Level rate changes to “High.” Masks are still recommended for attendees who are at high risk for severe illness or otherwise are a member of a vulnerable population. We also ask attendees to be courteous and wear a mask if seated at table with a high-risk player who asks for tablemates to wear masks.
