 Larry Weiss Trophy is Awarded to Mike Wavada
The Trophy
The New England Bridge Conference (NEBC), the ACBL's District 25, periodically awards the Larry Weiss Trophy. In The Bridge World magazine, the late Edgar Kaplan once said the late Larry Weiss was "the first gentleman of bridge." When Weiss, a longtime New England expert, died, his brother Stephen Weiss of Special Projects, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation in New York, donated the trophy, which is inscribed, "For Grace and Skill at the Bridge Table."

Three Criteria
Weiss listed three criteria for the award:
1. Some degree of success in contract bridge during the year for which the award is made.
2. Some degree of association with New England bridge.
3. Notably, superior behavior and gracious presence at the bridge table.
The first of these is not tied to any specific event or masterpoint achievements. It requires only subjective judgement that the candidate is a skilled player. The second requires a familiar face at NEBC events.  The third speaks for itself.

Sectional, STaC and Unit-wide Game Results

All of these results will be published on this website. It will no longer be necessary to go through Club Game Results on the ACBL site to find out how you (and your competitors) did.  STaC results will be a direct link to the ACBL.
 
Results from our Sectionals will be available on this site by the morning the day after the game. STaCs and special games that are handled through the ACBL will take a little longer. But they should be accessible far faster than before.
