Spring Fling STaC Results


May 8-14, 2017


Thank you to all who participated in the Western Conference's Spring Fling STaC games.

Congratulations to the following Kona Bridge Club Silver Point winners.  Players highlighted in Red earned Overall points in addition to their KBC points.  Click Full Results to see all sessions.
