ANC 2021 PERTH, WESTERN AUSTRALIA

Following on from the decision of the Western Australian Government to introduce hard border controls with New South Wales, the Tournament Organiser has liaised with the ABF including the President, NEC and the Tournament Chair to announce

We are optimistic that the current restrictions on players from Victoria will be lifted before the event and that state shall attend

New South Wales will not be attending

The ANC Teams event shall be played with nonattending state(s) playing via Real Bridge with conditions of play to be detailed.

The ANC Butler will be played with reduced numbers. This event cannot be played online.

All other events including the Swan River will take place as scheduled.

Issues caused by the non attendance of staff have been discussed and planned for.

If conditions deteriorate further a decision will be made on the 30th June as to the possibility of postponing the event until later in the year as the calendar permits.

The TO is available to discuss any matter.

VCC Rescheduled

Announcement from Geoff Schaller, the Tournament Organiser

The VCC is rescheduled to the dates of Thursday 26 – Sunday 29 August.

That weekend is currently a bye in the AFL calendar but the Monday is otherwise a normal working day. Hence the event will end on Sunday night instead of the normal Monday lunchtime. We understand the new dates may not be suitable for some, while others who could not attend in June will now be able to join us. All withdrawals will be fully refunded.

All entries to the VCC need to be withdrawn or re-confirmed. Please consult the My ABF website ( www.myabf.com.au/events/congress/view/23 ) for details.

My ABF launched

The Australian Bridge Federation has launched its new technology platform. The My ABF platform will support bridge across Australia for the ABF, state and territory organisations, clubs and of course all Australian bridge players.

First congress using the new My ABF entry system

The NSWBA Online Summer Matchpointed Swiss Pairs Congress on January 31 was the first congress in the country to trial the new My ABF entry and payment system.

My ABF will be increasingly rolled out across the country and allows any club to list a congress and accept online entries and payments. It also gives players a personalised login for your bridge activities from where you can:

  • Manage your personal details
  • View your masterpoints
  • View, enter, and pay for bridge events
  • See announcements from the ABF, your State and your Club.
  • Participate in bridge discussion forums
  • Run a “Bridge Credits” account with the ABF which you can put money into to pay for your bridge entries

To enter a My ABF congress you need to sign up to My ABF which takes about 30 seconds!
