The Open Butler will be run in two stages:

  • Stage I - Sat / Sun 13-14th November
  • Stage II - Mon / Tue 15-16th November

The Restricted Butler (open to players with less than 300 masterpoints as of 1st January 2021) will be run as a stand-alone event on Sat / Sun 13-14th November

The starting time each day is 12:00 AEDT (or 09:00 AWST)

The anticipated finishing time on the weekend is 18:30 AEDT (Restricted), 19.00-19.50 AEDT (Open)

There will not be any Seniors', Women's or Mixed Butler pairs events.

The Open Butler will award PQPs to 6th place (23, 20, 18, 13,10, 8). 

Both events will award Gold Points.

NOTE:  Because the event is now being run directly by the ABF and is no longer associated with BAWA, all session times are given in Australian Eastern Summer Time (AEDT).

Location - Real Bridge (Online)
