Print out your entry form and mail it with your check right away! There are very inexpensive dorm rooms available for those who have a long drive so act now!
Rivier is a terrific place to play bridge and getting there from anywhere in New Hampshire is very simple. There is now a map and directions page on this website.
Rivier has dorm rooms available. Anyone who has a long drive can stay Saturday night for only $35.00 That's a difficult price to beat.
We are told that the quality of the food at Rivier is excellent but for those who prefer to eat elsewhere, there are dozens of good restaurants in Nashua. Some are downtown (go North on South Main St.) and others are in and around the Pheasant Lane Mall (go South on the Daniel Webster Highway).
Help! We Need New Tournament Sites!
We need your help! Some time ago, the Newington, NH, Town Offices informed us that the site is no longer available. Other than the October sectional in Grantham, we've scheduled the remaining 2016 tournaments at Rivier University in Nashua. We've been unable to find an alternative location.
If there's a site in your area that's available on weekends and that you think may be suitable for a sectional, please let us know! Contact Sarah Widhu, the President of the NHBA, at (603) 881-7518 or email@example.com or use the Contact Us page on this website.
