The RBA will host the Flight B&C North American Open Pairs (NAOP) finals, Saturday and Sunday, September 23-24 at the Clarion Hotel. Flight B (0-2500) will have a two-session qualifier on Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. with approximately half the field qualifying for Sunday’s two-session final. Flight C (0-500 NLM) will have a two-session final on Sunday only.
But first, you have to qualify. The Bridge Center ran qualifying games in June and July and Friendly Bridge ran two games in July. If you haven’t qualified, check the schedule for additional qualifying games in August. Entry deadline is September 15, and the cost is $50.00 a pair for both sessions. Winners qualify for the Nationals in Philadelphia in March 2018. You and your partner can earn up to $700 each for expense money. AND, you can win Gold and/or Red points.
