Sectional Tournaments Cancelled
The ACBL has decided not to staff sectional, regional and NABC tournaments with ACBL tournament directors through February 2021 due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore all sectionals have been cancelled until this policy has been changed. The RIBA has also cancelled the January 2021 sectional as well.
