Message from Joan Kushner:Joan Kushner

Welcome, everyone, to, once again!

I want to thank the Board of Directors for re-electing me President. The new Board of Directors includes Margaret Devere as Vice-President, Bonnie Smith as Secretary, and Phil Debus as Treasurer. Shirley Heinsohn, Jeanne Achziger, Jim Calhoun (yes, a new Life Master – hooray!), Al Kane, and Pat Henke are the other active members. A terrific Board for an exciting 2015!

Fall NABC 2015 Info

The Fall NABC 2015 is coming to Denver!

As always, the ACBL website ( has a lot of information to support the NABC. However, there is local information that won't be available on ACBL's website, so we have set up a page on this website (Unit 361) to provide whatever extra information we can.

It's here: Tournaments>Fall NABC 2015.

Right now, this page has information on:

  • Transportation and parking
  • Volunteering

We'll add information as we get it, so be sure to keep checking.

Use Power Ratings to Prep for the NABC

Chris Champion from Colorado Springs developed the Power Ratings system, and maintains it with input from hundreds of clubs and units around the country. Chris recently sent us this insider tip ....

The secret to forming a winning KO team is finding good teammates that have low Masterpoint totals. When you look at the “Most Underrated Players” list you will find these players. MPs will tell you what bracket you will play in. PR will tell you how strong your team will be. UR is a summary of these. UR is the difference between the player’s Power Rating and the Power Rating of the average player with this player’s number of Masterpoints.

The “Most Underrated Pairs” list is another good source of potential teammates. The MP column shows the Masterpoints of both partners combined.

To find these lists, go to Click on Other Units in the upper right of the Power Ratings website, then select your unit.
