The ACBL District 21 2016–17 North American Pairs will be played according to the ACBL North American Pairs Conditions of Contest, with District 21 electing the following options as allowed in those Conditions. Any changes to the ACBL Conditions of Contest and their allowed options take precedent over the items listed here.
The time has arrived to start planning for the 2016–2017 NAP club-level qualifying games during the months of June, July, and August. Your club may hold two NAP qualifying games per sanctioned session per month. The sanction fee is only $5.00 per table payable to ACBL. Your players receive 50/50 red and black masterpoints at sectional rating. Clubs do not need a special sanction — just use the NAP strata and random deals. Players are allowed to play with different players at a Club or a Unit NAP game. Unit and District 21 final NAP games are Gold and Red masterpoints at sectional rating.
Players must first qualify at the club level and then after you qualify at the club level you are allowed to enter into the Unit Nap Level = a Player can ONLY PLAY IN ONE UNIT GAME IN THE DISTRICT. A Unit can have only ONE UNIT NAP QUALIFYING GAME and the UNIT NAP game must be approved by firstname.lastname@example.org for the month of Sept., Oct., Nov. OR Dec. 2016. After approval then send to ACBL for an sanction. The fee to Units for the Unit NAP game is $7.00 per table. After qualifying at the Club and Unit Level NAP game you may now enter into the D21 finals with NO EXCEPTION TO QUALIFICATION. The top three finishers in Flight A and the top four finishers in Flight B and Flight C are invited to attend the Spring NABC in Kansas City MO in March 2017.
ACBL monetary awards will be given on site and players must play in the event until eliminated to receive the award. All players must be a paid member of District 21 in good standing.
