LENGTH OF MATCHES:   Matches will be of 30 boards.   You are reminded that ALL hands are dealt at the table.   A passed in hand constitutes a deal.

INCOMPLETE RUBBERS:    If only one side has a game they will be credited with 300 points.   If only one side has a part-score in an incomplete game they will receive 50 points.

TIE-BREAKS:   Ties at the end of a match will be broken by successive 2-board playoffs.

TRAVEL:   The committee has looked at the cost of running this competition across the region and has decided against implementing an entry fee. Instead, travel allowance will only be available if there is an east/west playoff at the rate of $15 per hour of return travel.

NATIONALS:  The winning pair of our competition will represent this Centre at the National Finals at Congress.   The Centre with the largest entry number will receive a second entry.   Should we qualify for a second entry (this will be known before we get to our finals) our finalists will both be entered in the Dan Gifford Competition.

Good bridging everyone!!
