State Teams have been selected and congratulations to all representatives on their selection. We very much look forward to seeing you in Melbourne and wish you further success!

We are also keen to welcome players to the TBIB Butler Pairs Championships and any of the many side events. In conjunction with the Interstate Teams Championship we will be running the Bridge Fringe Festival. This festival has events for all levels and we have recently added a Novice event (under 50 masterpoints as at 31st March) to the program. Restricted players will have category prizes in all Fringe events some of which are ‘walk in’ sessions and, for those looking for more challenging bridge, there are one and two day events on every day of the program. Download a copy of the Fringe Festival Brochure to get full details.

Car parking at the venue will be abundant with spaces in the block adjoining the rear of the Bayview (Queens Lane) plus some neighbouring undercover in the hotel (all parking $14 per day).

The Victory Dinner on Friday 19th July will be a special occasion, celebrating success and enjoying good wine and contemporary cuisine - please book your place ($100pp).

Whilst our venue will be warm and inviting, Melbourne in winter can be cold!

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.  As invitations will be sent from Government House, names of representative team players are required promptly - early entry for all events will assist greatly.
