Grand National Teams(GNT) Bulletin

At the Unit meeting last Sat it was suggested that there needs to be more information for players to understand how the GNT works, maybe an article in the News Letter and/or email blasts.  I think I offered to send Pat information on the GNT, so I have attached the Conditions of Contest.  Refer to the C of C for details.  Please let me know if I need to provide any more information or answer any questions or to assist in any other way.

Flight Eligibility or Stratification levels are: Open = unlimited, A < 6000, B <2500, C = Non-life master with under 500.  Flights may be combined at the club or District  levels depending on field size.  Everyone that plays in a club is qualified for the Unit level game, everyone that plays in the 2 Session Unit Level game on Apr 21 at 10AM at the Bridge Center is qualified to play in the District game on June 8-9 in OKC.  Players that did not play in a lower level game can still play in the Unit or District final by paying the Buy-In fee.  Refer to the C of C for details on other restrictions, and player substitution rules.

Thanks

Welcome to Wichita Duplicate
REACH for GOLD @ Club Games

The following link provides access to the main web page that explains what REACH is and links to other information like FAQ, Conditions of Contest and how to register as a player or your club:  REACH at Club House.

Any club that already uses TheCommonGame is registered.  This would include the Mon, Wed, Fri and Sat afternoon clubs at the Bridge Center and Orchard Park's Tues afternoon game.    The REACH game at clubs can run on top of other events with gold or red points added to your local club awards.  For example Feb 3 is also a STAC game but can also be a REACH game provided the SAT session is a Common game and TheCommonGame hands are used.  Note that registration for players and clubs that are not already Common Games closes at midnight, PST, on Feb 2.  The afternoon sanction can be an Open, Restricted or Invitational game.

How do players participate?  ACBL members will play as they normally would for a club game but must pay a one-time fee via an online form in addition to the club entry fee. They must play in a minimum of two sessions out of the six.

The following link is an example club flyer that could be posted on our web page, news letter and/or within the Bridge Center:  Example Club Flyer.

 Why should clubs participate and promote the REACH event? REACH helps your club members get pigmented points and should also boost your attendance (clubs who participated in the first REACH saw 10%+ more players show up per game). Also, excess fees will be contributed to our National Bridge Organizations.  About 20% of REACH fees will be shared with ACBL Districts, based on the number of members who participate from each District. The net of the fees received for the REACH, after paying the share to Districts and deducting costs for the event, will be contributed to International Bridge. The extra fees charged for the ACBL-wide International Game on Feb 3rd will also go to this cause.
