Sectionals and STaCs

Sectionals

Sectional tournaments, usually three days, are hosted by units and clubs given special allowances. While there are no restrictions on the number of sectional tournaments a unit may conduct, a District must approve the sanction application before it can be acted upon by the ACBL.

Currently, silver masterpoints can be earned online during Silver Linings Weeks held periodically throughout the calendar year.

Sectional Tournaments at Clubs

Sectional Tournaments at Clubs (STaC) are sectionally rated and staged at participating clubs in a specific geographical area. A STaC can last up to seven days. There are winners and overall places for participants. Silver points are awarded.

The Western Conference (Districts 17, 21 and 22) conducts three STaCs in May, August and December. Also, various units within D17 collectively sponsor STaCs.

Due to COVID-19, sanctioned club games and regionally-rated tournaments are being played on Bridge Base Online (BBO). Silver masterpoints can be earned online during Silver Linings Weeks held periodically throughout the calendar year.
