    A. Beth ReidDistrict 11 ACBL Director Report - A. Beth Reid: Spring 2016 Reno                     district11director@acbl.org
    The Reno Committee put on a great NABC. The playing areas were spread out among 3 connected casinos, but once you got the hang of it, getting around was easy peasy---and the signage provided by the “Ask Me” crew was fabu. The final table count was a tad short of the 12,000 estimated, but lower local costs assured a profitable NABC. I saw lots of District 11 friends and everyone seemed to be doing well and having a great time!     .MORE
