Don Berman, President of District 6 and Jim Villanueva, President of District 7,
would like to announce that after continued cooperation and planning between the two districts, just as there has been throughout a half century of the Mid-Atlantic Bridge Conference...
 
The Mid-Atlantic Bridge Conference (MABC) will be reborn on January 5th, 2015 with new bylaws and a new purpose.
The MABC will now be a support organization to District 6 and District 7 for hosting the best Regional Tournaments in the ACBL, only now each district will spend its time and energy focusing more on its own substantial territory. Tournament attendees should notice improvement in the their tournament experience. We will be embracing a new player-friendly event structure for pair events just approved by the ACBL board that includes additional strata for those with 750 to 3000 master points. We will also be able to run Gold Rush games six days every tournament. MABC tournaments still offer great hospitality and a philosophy of giving as much back to the player as possible, a famous intermediate/newcomer program, first class properties with the attempt to keep room rates as reasonable as the market allows, and being among the lowest of all regional card fees. MABC script for overall awards will still be given and honored in both districts.
 
We are predominately a group of VOLUNTEERS and are always looking for more, and people should contact their unit boards to become involved.

MABC Developments:

On May 24 and 25, committees from District 6 & 7 met to develop plans for the transition to running their regional Tournaments. In summary they agreed to:

1-      Start running the tournaments and assume financial control at the conclusion of the Charleston Tournament on Jan 5, 2015

2-      Continue to have a smaller MABC organization to handle issues where it makes economic and practical  sense. Items like tables, Bridgemates, consumables, flyers, etc.

3-      The new MABC would develop a budget and be funded based on usage by Districts 6 & 7.

4-      Districts would develop capabilities within their organization to handle the Regional tournament in their respective Districts after the Jan date.

To that effect, D7 has formed a Tournament Operations Committee (TOC) to handle our Tournaments. It will be chaired by the District VP-Dick Myers, and is already working on contracts, schedules, advertising and procedures for tournaments after January, starting with Callaway Gardens.

We will be having a District wide open meeting on Saturday morning July 12 at the Columbia regional to share information and solicit input from the members of the District. Look for details in the daily bulletin.
