NZ has been invited to
send a team to the World IBSF 6 Reds competition in Hurghada, Egypt in August 2017. A number of players have expressed an interest in going. Because of this we need to have a 6 Reds qualifying tournament to select the team(s). This is a first for NZ but will probably be an annual event.
There is some sponsorship available for a few players to go, but players who wish to go must be prepared to fund themselves for the whole trip.
If you would like to go to the Worlds 6 Reds championship then you must attend this selection championship. Prior to the start of play you must indicate if you wish to be considered for selection. Ie you can still enter and play if you do not wish to go. The selection will be made at the conclusion of the tournament so players can have time to fundraise for themselves. The NZBSA has had no success in fundraising for national teams overseas travel in the recent past. It appears that regional associations have more success.
The CBSA is aiming to billet all out of town players for this tournament. If you wish to be billeted, let us know. Motel accommodation is available. See separate sheet.
