SummerFest is Now The Valentine Regional!

Make plans now to come to the CCBA's VALENTINE REGIONAL


Wyndham-Glenview Suites
1400 Milwaukee Ave.


Saturday, February 18, 2017-Friday, February 24, 2017


In 2015 the CCBA ran its Summer Regional Tournament in February because the Summer NABC was being held in Chicago.  In 2016 we couldn't match a suitable site with available dates in June, July, or August.  The Board of Directors therefore decided to move the Regional to February and make it dovetail with the annual District 13 Grand National Team Games.  (However, they are being held up the street at the Hilton)

The schedule offers many options -- Swiss Teams, Gold Rush Pairs, Choice Pairs, more -- to win Red and Gold points. Hospitality will be in the friendly hands of Adrienne Cohen, and Bob Young is Tournament Chair.

Help our players!

Many people have serious, and even life threatening, allergic reactions to scented lotions, perfumes, colognes and other scents. The CCBA and club owners seek your cooperation to avoid these situations by coming to all bridge events "scent-free."

Please help us by abiding to our new policy. Thank you for your consideration.
