MABC Entry Vouchers will be available at the Augusta, Norfolk and Charleston Regionals
The MABC is launching a trial run of a new convenience for bridge players - the MABC Entry Voucher. For the first time at MABC events, you can purchase multiple entries in advance using your credit card. We encourage you to try this out and let us know what you think.
What is an MABC Entry Voucher? An MABC Entry Voucher is good for one entry to any event, and can be redeemed like cash or MABC scrip.
What convenience does this offer me? (1) The convenience of credit card purchase. This will allow you to leave your checkbook and cash at home, and still be able to buy entries. (2) Entry-selling lines move faster when players don't need to write checks or count change for a cash transaction.
Can I buy entry vouchers with cash or check? At this time, we are selling these vouchers through credit card sale only. Please use the normal entry line if you do not wish to use a credit card.
Can I use this entry voucher at future MABC events, like scrip? No - this voucher is only good at the Regional where purchased. If the service is popular, the MABC and/or District 7 may consider future options to allow such vouchers to be good for multiple tournaments, but at this time, it's use it or lose it.
Can MABC Entry Vouchers be purchased for the entire tournament? Vouchers will be sold only through Saturday afternoon. Be sure to tell us if you want more!
What if I don't use all my vouchers? We want to stay out of the ATM Business so don't buy more vouchers than you are going to use at this tournament. In emergency cases only, refunds will be given with the approval of an MABC Official.
Questions? Please contact Chris Moll MABC Vice President chris26bridge@aol.com cell (504)495-7485

MABC Developments:

On May 24 and 25, committees from District 6 & 7 met to develop plans for the transition to running their regional Tournaments. In summary they agreed to:

1-      Start running the tournaments and assume financial control at the conclusion of the Charleston Tournament on Jan 5, 2015

2-      Continue to have a smaller MABC organization to handle issues where it makes economic and practical  sense. Items like tables, Bridgemates, consumables, flyers, etc.

3-      The new MABC would develop a budget and be funded based on usage by Districts 6 & 7.

4-      Districts would develop capabilities within their organization to handle the Regional tournament in their respective Districts after the Jan date.

To that effect, D7 has formed a Tournament Operations Committee (TOC) to handle our Tournaments. It will be chaired by the District VP-Dick Myers, and is already working on contracts, schedules, advertising and procedures for tournaments after January, starting with Callaway Gardens.

We will be having a District wide open meeting on Saturday morning July 12 at the Columbia regional to share information and solicit input from the members of the District. Look for details in the daily bulletin.
