Just a reminder that places are now filling up for this Congress that was such a success last year. We have made a few changes this year:
We have booked more space in Citywest to allow for more comfort for our players.
Our new team of Tournament Directors, headed by Fearghal O’Boyle, have a new plan in place to make your experience more enjoyable.
We are introducing Swiss Teams for all Congress teams to allow for a fairer and more equitable tournament.
The committee hope to encourage players at every level to participate in the fun that congresses usually generate on so many levels. To this end, they are hosting separate Novice Pairs, Intermediate A Pairs, Intermediate B Pairs, Area Master Pairs and Congress Pairs on the Saturday and separate Novice Teams, Intermediate A Teams, Intermediate B Teams, Area Master Teams and Congress Teams on the Sunday.
The event kicks off this coming Friday evening with a Mixed Pairs competition. For those of you who would prefer not to play in the formal competition, there will be an Open Pairs competition on the Friday night and on the Sunday also, where pre-booking is not necessary.
The Bridge venue in Citywest Hotel in Saggart, County Dublin has been extended to accommodate the huge interest generated by last year’s competition and there will be a prize fund of over €9,000 to be enjoyed.
