Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
RIGHT! When there is a free use of the playing area, there is a guaranty of a specific minimum number of rooms booked. That guaranty is not the same as the room block. When you pay rent for the playing area, there is no guaranty, but there is a room ...
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
I don't think so - Ray. There are 6 hotels in Montreal and the Fairmont is something like 18 blocks away. ACBL contract with the ACBL Hotel service, ConferenceDirect. I doubt ACBL has any liability if some number of rooms has not been booked in any of the six hotels ...
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
IMHO this will only START getting back to Normal after there is a vaccine. Getting back to normal will take 1 to 2 yrs. So - we may be looking at 2 years at the earliest
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
That is because, unlike Columbus, Montreal, and Tampa, the NABC was played at the Hilton in Honolulu!!! There is a HUGE difference between playing at a hotel where the playing area is FREE if a certain number of rooms are sold. When the playing area is in a convention center ...
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
Convinced of what?
There probably WILL be a Montreal NABC
Barry, your assumption re the coronavirus may be correct. However all the other financial calculations are baseless, in my opinion. Montreal, like Columbus (and Tampa) are not played in a hotel; thus ACBL has a contract with a convention center. That contract, we hope, has all sorts of cancellation provisions ...
Time to make a plan B for Montreal
The EBL just came out with its "Plan B" for the European Championship that is currently scheduled for June 17, 2020. They announced the Alt date, at the same location in Madeira. You can see the link in the Corona forum. ACBL should follow in the next few weeks.
Time to make a plan B for Montreal
I read this morning that the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is, indeed, cancelled :( We have to be realistic! We need some plan going on. We need to announce a date of decision time for our summer NABC. There is no need to live on pins and needles until early July. I ...
Time to make a plan B for Montreal
Richard - Sure it is better to use the current date location. Yes it is a big effort/planning to set up. Next NABC is 4 month ahead. I didn't suggest cancelling -- I suggest an Alternative plan
Time to make a plan B for Montreal
Right Donald. Also have doubts that an on-line substitution will occur. That is why I hope we can have an Alt date/location. Maybe a smaller NABC can take place at the end of Summer - who knows. Just hope there is some plan instead of just a cancellation.
