Gold Coast Entry Form link https://www.qldbridge.com.au/entryforms/3073_qba18Feb2022.pdf.  Please note that it is vital that players enter earlyish so we can get an idea if the event will be viable or not.  You must enter via the MyABF and to do this you must be registered with MyABF https://www.myabf.com.au/view.  The Queensland Bridge Association has appointed a MyABF Officer and coincidently this person is also the Gold Coast Entry Co-Ordinator Pele Rankin.  If you have any problems with MyABF give Pele a call on 0439949060 or email her on gccentries@qldbridge.com.au.  Any other enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact me on 0412064903.
