Essex Bridge Center is a participating club in the
Regional Event At The Club ‘House’ (REACH) event
held February 3 (in conjunction with the International Fund Game)
AND afternoon games on Monday, Feb 5 through Friday, Feb 9.
This event awards GOLD points.

REACH is an independent event that runs concurrent to the usual afternoon Common Game
at Essex Bridge Center.
Players will earn the usual black points in every Essex Bridge Center game during this week.
Only registered REACH participants are eligible to also earn GOLD points.

How Does It Work?

1. Players MUST pre-register at the REACH website no later than 11:59pm
on Friday, February 2.
The cost to participate is $30, payable at the REACH website:

Player Registration link in lower right corner

Essex Bridge Center has no ability to accept registrations or REACH payments.
Absolutely no late entries are accepted by the REACH administration.

2. Players then play a minimum of two afternoons starting on February 3
(International Fund Game – which also qualifies for REACH) through Friday, Feb 9
either an Open or a 499 Game. (Evening Open and 499 games do NOT qualify.)
Players are still required to pay the $13 entry fee for all Essex Bridge Center games
even if they are participating in the REACH event.

3. Scores from participating players will be compared across the field of all participating
clubs. Your two best scores from the week will be used. Gold points will be awarded by the ACBL.

NOTE: Only those individuals who have registered for REACH will be compared.
Registered REACH players MAY partner with a non-REACH player in
an afternoon game. Since it’s only the individual outcome that matters,
your partner is not required to register if he/she does not want
to register for REACH.
