Playing in an NABC+ pairs game? Buy your entry early!
In an effort to speed up the start of all NABC+ pairs events – which require time to allow for proper seeding – the ACBL asks participants to please buy their entries at least 15 minutes before game time. This is especially true if you expect to be a seeded pair.

Entries for the Vanderbilt Knockout Teams and the 0-10,000 KO Teams are required before 6 p.m. on Sunday, March 23.

Electronic Device Policy
The electronic device policy at NABCs allows players to bring electronic devices such as cell phones into the playing area provided that such devices are turned off. Further, any such equipment must not be visible during the session.
A violation of the policy will result in an automatic disciplinary penalty of one full board (or 12 IMPs in that form of scoring) for the first offense. A second offense will result in disqualification from the event.
