2021 Leroy Lake Award Winner

Lucia Carlisle has been selected as the Leroy Lake Award winner for 2021.  David Lawrence, chairman of the selection committee, in his presentation remarks, cited how Lucia had met the three crteria of the award. Lucia had a notable presence in New Hampshire bridge events during the year. Lucia, as NHBA treasurer, has been heavily involved in the unit both managing its financial affairs and working on many other necessary tasks that no one else seemed to want to do. Throughout the year Lucia exhibited superior behavior and a gracious presence at the bridge table and in the performance of the many tasks she stepped up to perform for the unit.  


This is the first ACBL National tournament held in New England since 2014.  All New Hampshire bridge players are encouraged to attend.


The Unit 150 2022 Sectionals will be held Aug. 20-21 in Portsmouth, Sept. 24-25 in Grantham, and Nov. 5-6 in Portsmouth.


The 2022 NH State Tournament has been moved to spring. It will be held on-line on BBO on May 14-15 with award ceremonies to follow on Zoom. Click here:
