Spring Fling STaC Results
May 8-14, 2017
Thank you to all who participated in the Western Conference's Spring Fling STaC games.
Although many players feel that STaC means 'stacked' hands it actually means Sectional Tournaments at Clubs. Ans just like local Sectional Tournaments the winners earn Silver Points. These STaC games are held for one week three times each year by the Western Conference which includes Districts 17, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23 - Kona Bridge Club is in District 20.
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.
