Join Bridge Winners
ABA Summer National in Lombard, Illinois

We would like to see bridge players (if able) attend the 2017 Summer National at the Westin in Lombard, Illinois due west of Chicago. The tournament starts on Thursday, August the 17th and ends on Saturday, August the 26th. There are pair games and team games for all levels.

Of particular note we have the Rex Watkins Men's Pairs and the Christine Jones Women's Pairs Saturday, August the 19th. After the memorial service we have the Pauline Taylor Mixed Pairs on Sunday, August the 20th. Just like the Spingold that started today, every summer ABA has the Victor Daly knockout. However, that knockout is double elimination the first day with the "Second Chance" knockout that starts if your team gets knocked out the first session. That event runs Monday, August the 22nd and Tuesday, August the 23rd. There are 2 other knockout events as well as the Will Richardson Swiss Teams.

Best of all, we get to have the annual awards brunch for players who advanced. One day during that tournament is known as Greek Day where fraternity brothers and sorority sisters get dressed up in their attire.

Who can forget any Chicago tournament without remembering Chester Johnson? There will be a tribute to him at that event. I do understand that George Jacobs and Claude Vogel will give lectures at that national. So, come one, come all to Lombard for a chance to meet up with some of the nicest people. We know everybody will have a great time.

Thank you very much.Smile
