Message from the District Director
By Carlos Muñoz
The ACBL Board just concluded its Fall meetings in Austin Texas, looking forward to the first NABC in two years. The few Regionals held so far have met with reduced attendance but enthusiastic players and we are hoping for a steady increase in face to face (FTF) play as we conclude 2021 and move into 2022.
Following an expected gain of over $1,000,000 this year, the 2022 budget was approved with an expected loss of about $800,000, based on expected lower revenues as attendance gradually increases, and significant investment in technology to support a cashless tournament environment, pre–registration for tournament play and migration away from older platforms. Highlights of discussions and decisions of the Board include:
Due to Covid, our next District 3 Regional will not be until Fairfield next year, but our GNT final will be held online in January and the Rainbow STAC represents a rare and excellent opportunity to earn gold points for those of you who may have been reluctant to return to FTF play. Tell your friends!
