Tournament Cancellations
The District 13 Regional at Lake Geneva WI has been officially cancelled (I am told unofficially :-) by someone who knows).
Tournament Cancellations
I had planned to attend the District 13 Regional at Lake Geneva April 13-19. I got an email from the hotel/lodge acknowledging cancelling my reservation. I called and the hotel said the event had been cancelled, but I see nothing on the ACBL website re cancellation and have heard ...

Dennis Bilde is 2020 Lazard Sportsman of the Year
Great choice!! Congrats, Dennis!!
Junior USBC Champions
you probably can guess the answer to that. Our funding for international travel -- the only recurring funding the USBF has -- is sufficient for 5 teams; 6 is a stretch; more than 6 isn't feasible.
Another huge finish for 15-year old Finn Kolesnik
a great accomplishment indeed! Congrats Finn and John!
