CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 ACE OF CLUBS AND MINI-MCKENNEY WINNERS!

Mini-Mckenney

Kim Grant, Bob Enyeart, Dave Himmelhaver and Gary Chaney (from left above) are the 2018 first-place winners in their categories in these two Unit-wide contests, and we’re very proud of them. Bob Enyeart won the Ace of Clubs award as the Unit 154 player, of those starting the year with 20 to 50 masterpoints, who earned the most points in regular club games in 2018. Unit 154 includes players at all ACBL-sanctioned duplicate bridge clubs in Northern Indiana.

Mini-McKenney winners are players in Unit 154, one per ranking level, who earned the most total masterpoints at clubs and tournaments in 2018. Dave Himmelhaver won for players who started with 0-5 points; Bob Enyeart won for players who started with 20 to 50 points, Kim Grant won for players who started with 1500 to 2500 points; and Gary Chaney won for players who started with 2500-3500 points.
