Entries are now open for the City of Sydney Teams which will be played online on the RealBridge platform, 3 Monday nights commencing June 21.
Congratulations to Jay Novak and Richard Carter the winners of the Online Restricted Pairs Championship and to Heath Henn and Mitch Dowling who will all receive the ABF grant to compete in the ABF Restricted Butler in Perth in July. Commiserations to Wei Zhang and Sherlock Shao who lost the tie-break for second place.
Announcement from Geoff Schaller, the Tournament Organiser
The VCC is rescheduled to the dates of Thursday 26 – Sunday 29 August.
That weekend is currently a bye in the AFL calendar but the Monday is otherwise a normal working day. Hence the event will end on Sunday night instead of the normal Monday lunchtime. We understand the new dates may not be suitable for some, while others who could not attend in June will now be able to join us. All withdrawals will be fully refunded.
All entries to the VCC need to be withdrawn or re-confirmed. Please consult the My ABF website ( www.myabf.com.au/events/congress/view/23 ) for details.

The Australian Bridge Federation has launched its new technology platform. The My ABF platform will support bridge across Australia for the ABF, state and territory organisations, clubs and of course all Australian bridge players.
First congress using the new My ABF entry system
The NSWBA Online Summer Matchpointed Swiss Pairs Congress on January 31 was the first congress in the country to trial the new My ABF entry and payment system.
My ABF will be increasingly rolled out across the country and allows any club to list a congress and accept online entries and payments. It also gives players a personalised login for your bridge activities from where you can:
- Manage your personal details
- View your masterpoints
- View, enter, and pay for bridge events
- See announcements from the ABF, your State and your Club.
- Participate in bridge discussion forums
- Run a “Bridge Credits” account with the ABF which you can put money into to pay for your bridge entries
To enter a My ABF congress you need to sign up to My ABF which takes about 30 seconds!
