The Senior Regional in Falmouth runs from April 26 through April 30. It combines regional events that are limited to seniors (born in 1958 or earlier) with sectional events that are open to all. Games limited to players with under 300 points and Senior Gold Rush events are scheduled for all five days. There will even be “Extra Points Open Pairs” games — more points for the same entry fee — on Friday and Saturday evening.
The Experts Panel on Thursday during the lunch break is an interactive session based on the hands played that morning. There will also be an expert lecture on Friday morning. Details will be posted on NEBridge.org as soon as they are available.
This year's tournament is special -- it's a return to the Sea Crest and the room rate is only $99 per night, including parking, wi-fi, flat-screen TV, a pillowtop bed, and a refrigerator.
Help Us Find New Tournament Sites
Rivier University in Nashua and the Grantham Town Hall are terrific places to play bridge but the NHBA has been unable to find tournament sites in other areas of New Hampshire. If there's a site in your area that you think may be suitable for a tournament, please let us know! Contact Sarah Widhu, the President of the NHBA, at (603) 881-7518 or firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact Us page on this website.
This site now includes an In Memorium page. We will publish obituaries of Unit 150 members when published in the ACBL Bulletin or when provided to us at the discretion of the Unit President. You can use the Contact Us page for this purpose.
