The Western Conference is an association of three ACBL Districts (17, 21 and 22) in the Western United States. They collaborate to issue the monthly Forum Newsletter, organize Sectional Tournaments at Clubs (STaC), and provide information on upcoming Western States bridge events.
District 21 sponsors STaC Games three times per year. Each tournament lasts for one week and has morning, afternoon, and evening sessions. Hundreds of tables from several ACBL districts play the same hands. You can win upwards of 20 silver masterpoints in one session of bridge.
