Ramey Farah (50-100), Deborah Goldsmith (300-500) and Elaine Chan (2500-3500) convincingly won their Mini-McKenney brackets. Deborah Goldsmith also won her Mini-McKenney bracket at the district level, well ahead of Wayne Gorski from Mission Viejo.

Several San Diego unit members placed well in the district rankings. Patrick Chen won the 0-5 bracket Ace of Clubs and was second in the Mini-McKenney. Davis Bennett easily won the 100-200 bracket in both races. Tom Herzog won the 1000-1500 Ace of Clubs bracket and was second in the Mini-McKenney. Larry Sherman was second in the 1500-2500 Ace of Clubs bracket. Joe Houde from U531 won the 3500-5000 Ace of Clubs bracket and was second in the Mini-McKenney race. Paul Darin won the 5000-7500 Mini-McKenney race and Mac Busby won the 7500-10000 Mini-McKenney race.

The Mini-McKenney counts total masterpoints earned for the year and the Ace of Clubs counts only masterpoints earned at clubs as opposed to sectionals, regionals, and nationals. There are multiple brackets for each race based on the number of masterpoints a player has at the start of the year. Starting this year the ACBL split the former 1000-2500 and 2500-5000 brackets into two separate brackets.
