Stage 2 - Unit Qualification (Optional): Unit 164 has elected not to have a Unit Level Qualification game in 2012. Individuals who have received Club Qualification can proceed directly to Stage 3.
Stage 3 - District Qualification: A District Qualifying is the last stage that determines the top three pairs in each category, (Open/2000/500) who advance to the National Finals at the Fall NABC. Winners of each flight receive reimbursement for airfare and hotels, with other awards available. The District 11 Qualifying game is on Saturday, October 27th, 2012 at the Cincinnati Fall Sectional.
