NAP ľ North American Pairs
Each club can hold two NAP (North American Pairs) games per sanctioned session during each of the months of June, July and August. These games award 100% sectional rated half red/half black masterpoints.
The NAP event has been a major ACBL pair championship since 1979 and was originally known as the Grand National Pairs. This grassroots event is staged in qualifying rounds at the club, unit and district levels. It culminates in a final held in conjunction with the Spring NABC, which will be held in St. Louis, MO in 2013. The contest is run as a flighted event: Flight A (open), Flight B (fewer than 2000 masterpoints as of the June 2012 masterpoint cycle) and Flight C (non-Life Master with fewer than 500 masterpoints as of June 2012). Please check your June 2012 Bridge Bulletin for your masterpoint total.
