We are the Maine Bridge Association. We have approximately 600 members in the State of Maine who are steady players of Duplicate Bridge. The Association is Unit 189 of the American Contract Bridge League (ACBL), which is the governing body for the game in North America.
Our purpose is to promote the game of Duplicate Contract Bridge in Maine. To that end,
* We run six tournaments called Sectionals annually throughout Maine, and an annual State Championship.
* We also support the operation of about 30 bridge clubs that hold games every week at various locations throughout Maine.
* Three times a year we publish our newsletter THE VOICE OF THE DUMMY
We have programs to bring bridge into the school systems to teach young people our fascinating game.
Our members compete in tournaments at the Regional New England and National levels, participating in the ACBLís masterpoint program for recognition of achievement in the game.
