Entry Fees All players born in 1998 or later get free entry. All players born between 1993 and 1997 get a 50% discount. Accommodation The Gold Coast Congress offers heavily subsidised accommodation in high rise holiday units to youth(ish) players. The cost is only • $17 a night for those born in 1993 or later. • $27 a night for older youths (up to 32 years or so). The La Grande Broadbeach Holiday Apartments have air-conditioning in the living area and a fully equipped kitchen. The complex is a short 800 metre stroll to the venue, and even closer to the beach. It has a pool, BBQ, gym, spa and sauna, and the youth players who stayed there last year had an awesome time! For details or to book accommodation, contact Jessica Brake on 0414 134 888 or jessicabrake@hotmail.com. Accommodation places are limited. Preference is given to those born in 1993 or later, or “older” youth players not in full time employment. Other financial help Your state based bridge association or local bridge club may also offer a subsidy – it doesn’t hurt to ask!
