Each NABC offers events for all levels of players including an intermediate/newcomer program for players with fewer than 300 masterpoints. There are trophies, masterpoints, special events, lectures -- and lots of non-bridge entertainment -- at all NABCs. For further information about ACBL tournaments, visit the national website.
