The 4th Commonwealth Nations Bridge Championship will be held in Australia from 14th February to 18th February 2018 at Broadbeach, Queensland. The event will take the form of a Teams Championship with a qualifying event and Finals held over the five days.
The event is being organised by the QBA on behalf of the Australian Bridge Federation and the convenor will be Charles Page.
The event will be run as a precursor to the 57th Gold Coast Bridge Congress which will be held at the same venue from 17th February to 24th February and it is the intention to offer all entrants the opportunity who to play in both the Commonwealth · Nations Bridge Championship and the Gold Coast Bridge Congress. The Gold Coast Bridge Congress is regarded as one of the best Bridge Congress in the world so this is an excellent opportunity for the Commonwealth Nation Bridge players to take part in two great Bridge events.
At this stage we wish to advise you of the dates of the Commonwealth Event and seek an indication as to your Federation's or Association's interest and support of the event. The eligibility of players to enter the event as part of a Team will initially reside with you as the Federation or Association of a Sponsoring Commonwealth Nation Team or with the Convenor for Private Teams. As has been the case in previous iterations of the event there will be a combination of Private Teams and Sponsoring Nation Teams playing in the event.
The venue at Broadbeach is on the Gold Coast which is a one hour flight from Sydney or a one hour drive from Brisbane, with both cities having an international Airport. There is plenty of accommodation on the Gold Coast at very reasonable prices as it will be the home ofthe 2018 Commonwealth Games. The Broadbeach venue will also be an integral part of the 2018 Commonwealth Games which we have been very fortunate to have secured the use of for the Commonwealth Nations Bridge Championship.
I look forward to hearing from you and welcome your participation at what will be a truly fabulous Bridge event.
