District 25 Schedule for 2020:
Winners Boards: NEBridge.org publishes photos of the winners of every strat in every event of every tournament sponsored by the district. Sad to say, the pages that contained the photos for 2014 and the first half of 2015 were lost in last summer's hardware catastrophe. However, the pages for all tournaments beginning with Hyannis in 2015 are available. The indexes have now been reconstructed.They are both available in the "Tournament Results" tab at left. The index by player can also be reached here. The index by tournament, date, and event is here. Please notify webmaster@NEBridge.org if you find any mistakes or want to submit a photo. It is never too late.
District 25 is definitely social. To keep up with the bridge news and gossip in New England check out our Facebook (NEBridge) page or follow us on Twitter (@NE_Bridge) or both. Twitter is very easy and non-threatening; for instructions on how to use it, just email webmaster@NEBridge.org.
New England Youth Bridge, Inc. has been working hard to showcase this great game to the video-game set. They urgently need our help. Details can be read here.
We strive to keep the website informative and easy to navigate. Please “Contact Us” if you have any questions or suggestions regarding District 25, the site, or anything else.
