Welcome to Gold Coast Unit 243's Website

Club Qualifying games during the months of
June - August

Each club can hold two NAP (North American Pairs) games per sanctioned session during each of the months of June, July and August. These games award 100% sectional rated half red/half black masterpoints.

The NAP event has been a major ACBL pair championship since 1979 and was originally known as the Grand National Pairs. This grassroots event is staged in qualifying rounds at the club, unit and district levels. It culminates in a final held in conjunction with the 2025 Spring NABC, in Memphis, TN. The contest is run as a flighted event: Flight A (Open), Flight B (fewer than 2500 masterpoints as of the June 2024 masterpoint cycle) and Flight C (Non-Life Master with fewer than 500 masterpoints as of June 2024). Please check your June 2024 Bridge Bulletin for your masterpoint total.

The Longest Day is an annual fundraising event held to support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease by the Alzheimer’s Association. The ACBL was an inaugural global partner for this effort, and after 10 years of participating, bridge players have raised more than $9 million! (Funds raised in Canada are donated to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.)

The Longest Day is a sunrise-to-sunset event to raise funds for the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer's Association. For 2024, face-to-face clubs can choose one day during the week of June 16-23 as their Longest Day for special fundraising games. Sanction fees from Virtual Club games during the weekend of June 22-23 will automatically be donated. The longest day of the year, this event asks participants to push themselves to complete approximately 16 hours of a consecutive activity, such as playing bridge. It's one day to honor the strength and courage displayed by people with Alzheimer's and their caregivers every day.  Bridge is uniquely suited for The Longest Day because studies have shown that playing strategic games, like bridge, help keep your brain healthy.

Show your support by registering your club as an official 'team', donating to a bridge club team, participating in The Longest Day games, or all three! You'll be honoring the more than 35 million people worldwide who are living with Alzheimer's and countless caregivers who face this disease. And by playing bridge, you'll show the world there is a fun game that may help slow the onset of this disease.
