It is intended that the D20 GNT winning teams become eligible for an NABC Finals competition at the Summer NABC's in Chicago in July, 2023. If a National GNT Finals is not played in 2023, there will be no advancement in a subsequent year and this will be a stand-alone event. Subsidies for travel expenses in 2023 may be offered if approved by the D20 Board.
The initial cost for the Championship is $240 per team (four sessions at $15 per person per session). Fees for the KO matches, if any, will be charged at that same rate. See the Conditions of Contest for details.
Masterpoints for flight eligibility are set to the September masterpoint cycle published by the ACBL as of August 6, 2022. (note!)
During all matches, players should have an ongoing video or audio chat session with their screenmate (North and East are screenmates; South and West are screenmates). These sessions are required for all KO matches and recommended for Round-Robin and Swiss matches. The chat can be done in software of the players’ choice, or by telephone call; if none can be agreed, the default choice is Zoom. The Director in Charge will mediate any issue regarding these connections.
