The elections of Chris Cookson, Marv Norden, and Kathy Hoehne to the District Board for the 2020 to 2022 term were ratified.
It was clarified that responsibility for obtaining sanctions for District regionals lies with the liaison appointed by the Board for that regional--whether the liaison does it or sees that the tournament chairman or District Tournament Coordinator do it.
District 19’s National Director, Julie Smith, reported the following from meetings of the National Board at the Las Vegas NABC:
District Web Master, J.P. Weber, is producing a video that will be a virtual display of the Kirkwood Trophy which is presented each year to the District player who earns the most master points in District regionals. This virtual display and announcement of the winner at the District’s spring regional each year will replace using the original trophy. Board member Tim White was authorized to dispose of the actual trophy at his discretion.
The District Treasurer, David Schmidt, has elicited the help of an expert in the tax field to get a ruling from the state as to whether the District is liable for paying the Washington State gaming tax.
The District enacted a policy that movements for all events should maximize fairness for players. This is to include side games and events scheduled during non-prime time. Two sets of boards should be available in case a Web Movement is fairest. (Two examples: 1. For a 12 table side game to play all the 12 pairs of the opposite direction and for all to play the same 24 boards by using a two-board, relay and by-stand movement. 2. For a 15 table pair event to have all contestants play the same boards and as many of the opponents as possible through use of a Web movement instead of a 9 round, three-board Mitchell movement.)
After a discussion on whether to raise the subsidy amounts given GNT and NAP qualifiers going to the National Finals, the Board took no action on being informed that the District’s subsidies fall in the middle or average of what other districts do.
Entry fees at District regionals in 2020 will remain the same at $15 Canadian in Canada and $14 U.S. in Washington.
The following offices were elected for 2020:
Event winners Phyllis Rakevich and Ronald Woodard were ahead by almost one and a half boards after a 64.81% first session, and never lost the event lead. B winners Larry Leskiw and John Feo were second in B at the break and took the lead after the penultimate round, winning by about a full board. Don McKay - Denise McKay won Flight C by nearly five full boards and were fourth overall.
Two-session pairs event, scored in matchpoints. Strat limits (by pair average): A: 3000+ / B: 1500 - 3000 / C: 0 - 1500.
Average masterpoints for players in this event: 1364

Both winning pairs had big penultimate rounds to separate themselves from the rest; Donna Parkes and Normand Dominique followed up with a good final round, while David Orcutt and Patricia Curtis held their own in the last round to end up on the same score, Orcutt and Curtis grabbing the under 300 strat as well in the final round. Not enough pairs in the 0-100 range for overalls in the third strat.
