District 16

The 25 districts are being combined into 13 regions for governance purposes and representation on the ACBL Board of Directors. 

Dallas NABC 2027

By Tomi Storey, 2027 NABC Chair

In a previous Scorecard Paul Cuneo said in his Regional Director’s report from Atlanta that Dallas was approved as the location for the Spring 2027 NABC. I hope everyone saw that, but just in case you missed it, let me repeat – Dallas will host an NABC again for the first time since 2014! 

This September come and play with us in the Tequila Regional in Ajijic, JaliscoThe host hotel will be the Sol y Luna Spa Boutique Hotel.We are very grateful for the opportunity to be able to hold the regional in Ajijic after Hurricane Otis didn't  allow us to do so in Acapulco this year.Thank you to everyone who is making this possible. ️ We trust that Acapulco will soon recover and in the meantime, VIVA AJIJIC ️.
