In welcoming you to the ANC 2019 we are delighted to confirm plans are progressing extremely well and as promised Melbourne will come up trumps. Personal results are up to you! Every day will be filled with bridge, including events for those looking for a one or two day competition. Four new one session walk in congress events have been added on Wednesday 17 July and Friday 19 July.

Deals for accommodation with the nominated hotels have been confirmed and all four have been very generous with the rates provided. Don't forget to quote Bridge, the ANC or the code mentioned. Each property is quite different. 'The Bayview Eden' is the venue for the ANC, 'The Blackman' just around the corner is part of the Art Series Hotel Group (entrance on Arthur Street), 'The Quest' at 478 St Kilda Road is a brand new apartment hotel and 'The Mantra', also on St Kilda Road, is another fine establishment.

Lastly, we are able to confirm a very special function at Government House as guests of the Governor of Victoria; the Honourable Linda Dessau AC. This function will take place on Thursday 18 July from 6 pm until 7.30 pm following the final of the ANC Teams. It will be 'showcasing' our game with the assistance of two of our best personalities - Michael Courtney and Bill Jacobs. As invitations will be sent from Government House, names of representative team players are required promptly - early entry for all events will assist greatly.
