2024 Regional Championship Finals
NZ Bridge is moving this event to Wellington. It is scheduled to run from 29-Nov to 1-Dec. Regions have the choice of sending teams of either four or six players. See the attached advice from the Board.

Please note that the Finals have a huge impact on our finances. We will apply for a grant towards the costs, but there is no guarantee we will receive any funding. Therefore, please be aware that the region will only be able to fund accommodation on a twin-share basis.

NZ Bridge normally announces a travel subsidy for this event.
