2013 Firecracker Sectional
The 2013 Firecracker Sectional promises to continue our record as one of the best and largest sectionals in the country. There will be pair and team games for all levels of players from beginners to pros, including 49'er games every day.
This year it will be held on June 26 through June 30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. This is the same location as last year and will again offer free parking. The Hyatt Regency Santa Clara hotel, in the same complex, is offering discounted room rates to our players. Reserve rooms early to ensure the special rate.
We will again be collecting donations for Second Harvest Food Bank. Your donation will help feed the hungry in our community.

Last year's Firecracker was another huge success. Once again we set a new record for attendance with 1058 tables! Many thanks to Tournament Chairs Steve Barasch and Allen Wolman and all of the other volunteers who helped make it such a success.
Second Harvest Food Bank
Once again, our players were very generous in their support of this charity which helps feed our needy children in San Mateo and Santa Clara counties.
Last year, $5,849.00 cash and food donations worth $1,950 were collected. This year we collected cash donations worth $6,335 and 9 barrels of food worth another $2,250. In addition, our cash contributions were matched by a corporate donor so $14,920 worth of cash and food went to this worthy charity.
Donations to Second Harvest Food Bank are tax deductible. Cash donations are acknowledged.
