The ACBL District 2 NAP multi-site final will be held Sunday, November 5th at the Dakota Lawn Bowling Centre at 1212 Dakota St (1.8 km south of Bishop Grandin & next to Jonathon Toews Arena). Ideally, the event will feature separate A, B, & C flights, each according to masterpoint level & Life Master status. Click here to see the list of Unit 181 qualifiers from the club stage.  Please note that if you have qualified for a higher flight than the one you're eligible to play in, you can still play in your eligible flight. You may have received an email from ACBL District 2 telling you that you qualified if you get regular email from the ACBL. Pre-registration is required because we need a minimum of 5 full tables in each flight in order to compete in the District final. Should a flight not have enough tables registered, pairs would have the option of playing in a higher flight.

 

Game times are 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM with a pizza lunch in between. The entry fee is $50 per pair, which includes $5 per player for the pizza lunch (players wishing to provide their own food can get a $5 reduction provided they give advance notice).    At the same time we are playing, pairs throughout Ontario and Bermuda are competing with the same cards. The top four pairs throughout the District qualify to compete in the NAP Final at the North American Bridge Championships in Philadelphia next March.a call Ray Hornby at 204-996-0025 (This email address is being protected from spambots.

All pairs that qualify have their card fees covered and the top two pairs receive a subsidy of $700 to help cover expenses for travel or accommodation to the Final. There is no commitment that you need to play in Philadelphia and if a pair does not accept the offer, then it goes to the pair with the next highest score in the NAP finals.
 
Please consider competing in this tournament to make sure we can hold the event. You never know – one or more of you may qualify to represent Canada in Philadelphia!
 
Thanks for supporting this initiative and please let me know if you will play on November 5th and who with.

Gerri Hewitt (who organized the event), and the entire board of directors of Bridge Manitoba would like to extend a special thank you to all of the volunteers (too numerous to mention) and participants who helped make the Harvest Fling a big success. The success of this organization is directly linked to volunteer participation and that participation was very much in evidence at Thursday night's event.  Thank you again to everyone for helping us run this very successful get together.
