Summer Regional in Nashua To Have Well Lighted Playing Area and Greatly Improved Hotel Services
Helen Pawlowski reports: "I met with Chris, the Director of Sales at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua this afternoon. (Map and directions.) We discussed the actions that the hotel has taken to solve the list of issues I presented to the hotel management at the end of our tournament last year. 
Better Lighting
"The most significant complaint was areas of very poor lighting in the ballroom. Today the hotel had replaced the existing flood lights with higher wattage bulbs in one corner of the ballroom. This provided good lighting which spread into the entire corner of the room. They agreed to change bulbs in every ceiling light fixture prior to our tournament.
More Staffing
"We also addressed the insufficient staffing in the restaurant and at peak check-in and check-out times at the front desk. The hotel has hired many new personnel since last June. They have a new General Manager, Food and Beverage manager, restaurant manager and front desk manager along with additional support staff. I met with John, the new GM who is aware of our issues and assures me that staffing will not be a problem this summer."

Pro-Am Pairs in Nashua
The Summer Regional in Nashua will feature a brand new event for District 25 – the Pro-Am Pairs, Saturday, June 27. Every pair must include at least one player who is NOT a life master and has fewer than 500 points. The objectives are to promote fun and learning in a less intense environment and to give newer players a chance to interact more freely with the veterans.
