NEBridge - Best in Class 2018

District 25 recognizes the players in each rank at the beginning of the year who have won the most total masterpoints in the eight tournaments held in 2018 that were sponsored by the district (five regionals plus the Rainbow Weekend, Grand National Teams, and the North American Pairs). Points of all colors are treated the same. The levels of rank are identical to those used by the ACBL for the Mini-McKenney and Ace of Clubs awards. Here are the final standings.
