Only NPA members can participate in these tournaments. NPA Chapters can also host non-sanctioned tournaments, in which ANY pinochle player can participate in, Please go to our Tournaments section of the website to check out all sanctioned and non-sanctioned tournaments upcoming

From the desk of Dorothy Ervin:
Amount of dues: Twenty dollars ($20.00) per person
Make check or money order payable to National Pinochle Association (NPA)
Dues accompanied by a current alpha roster (club name, member’s last name first, address, telephone number, email address and birthdate update) must be received by the Corresponding Secretary by 1 December 2018. Chapters that have not renewed by 30 January 2019 must be recertified by sending in addition to the $20.00 per person and $25.00 initiation fee.
I will be sending each chapter a copy of the current roster that I have on file.
If there is a change of information for renewing members, please highlight the change in your current chapter roster and email it back to me.
Please keep in mind that if a member’s dues are not received by me and post mark by the 21, December 2018, they will not be able to play in the Martin Luther King Sanctioned tournament 2019, due to the 30 Day restriction. (See Tournament Standard Operating Procedures dated June 2012).
Those who wish to do so may start sending in their renewals now, so that I will not be pressed for time with the November and December holidays coming up.
If you have any questions please email me Dotnlvly@gmail.com or call me at (904) 655-5623.
Thank You in advance for your cooperation.
