Purchase of entries for two-day NAOBC+ and NAOBC events will cover both the first and second days’ sessions. After the first day, those who finish in the top half of the field will automatically be entered into the two-session final. Those who finish the first day in the bottom half of the field will automatically be entered into the next day’s two-session Regional event. Regardless, participants will be charged for one day of NAOBC+ and NAOBC entry fees and one day of Regional entry fees. Those who qualify for the finals of their event will have earned a discount.
Entry to the Three-Day NAOBC+ and NAOBC events work similarly. Participants will pay for one day of NAOBC+ entry fees and two days of Regional entry fees. However, players finishing in the bottom half of the three-day NAOBC+ and NAOBC events will also have a free entry to the NAOBC+ or NAOBC Two-Day Pairs that start the next day.
