The Jim McKenna Cup is a traveling award which each year goes to the Unit 359 member who wins the most aggregate Masterpoints in our two annual tournaments -- the Bonanza Spring Sectional and the McKenna Fall Sectional.
The Cup was established decades ago as the McKenna Cup and was made a memorial award in memory of Jim McKenna following his death. Prior to 1994, the Cup winner could be from any Unit. At that time the rules changed so that the winner must be a Unit 359 member. Both McKennas were giants in Unit 359 bridge, being among our earliest Life Masters. Kay was in fact our Unit's very first Life Master. The "Kay McKenna Boulder Fall Sectional" tournament is named in Kay's honor -- she was a great supporter and benefactor of duplicate bridge in our area.
