Jim Villanueva, District 7 President and Don Berman,
District 6 President, wish to give you an update on the ongoing reorganization
of the Mid-Atlantic Bridge Conference (MABC).
In Gatlinburg, District 7 voted to take primary responsibility
to execute its own regionals and tournament finances while passing another
motion asking the MABC to continue in its current duties while an orderly
transition process is developed.
The MABC is fully functional and Tom Dow has assumed the
presidency for the remainder of the year. Chris Moll was elected by the MABC
Executive Committee to become MABC VP for the remainder of the year. The
scheduled elections for next yearís officers will take place during the Atlanta
Labor Day Regional.
A committee of members from District 6 and 7, who have been working on
preliminary restructuring plans, will meet in Raleigh to discuss the future
role of the MABC and forge detailed plans for an orderly transition.
Players will continue to enjoy our tournaments and notice subtle
improvements in their operations. All MABC prize coupons and free plays will be
honored in both districts.
