RESERVATIONS & REGISTRATIONS

We have simplified the booking process by splitting it into two parts:

Reservation:  players (and non-players) will complete the RESERVATION form to tell us they are coming to the tournament, to book and pay for the events they intend to play in and any social events, and to reserve one of our hotel packages if required.  We will reply by email with the total price to pay, and an ID CODE for each person included in the reservation.

Registration:  once you have your ID code, you can complete the REGISTRATION form for the Open Pairs and/or Open Teams with your partner, provided he or she also has an ID code. This step will register your entry with the Directors.  If you do not already have a Madeira International BRIDGEMATE NUMBER, it will be allocated at this stage; if you have played in the tournament before, we will use the same BRIDGEMATE NUMBER as last time.

Hence, players will have two numbers:
          Reservation ID Code, which identifies you for hotel bookings and payments
          BridgeMate number, which identifies you for scoring purposes.

You will not have to remember these numbers:  everyone will be issued with a barcoded badge at the Welcome Desk, and will need to wear or carry their badge for every bridge event or social event in which they participate.

(This will avoid the situation a few players experienced last year, in which one player had told us the name of their partner, but the partner had not made a reservation, or had not paid.)

HOW TO ENTER

1.

ONLINE RESERVATION FORM

To enter in advance of the tournament and secure your place, please complete the online RESERVATION FORM (available from 1st June).

This form will tell us you are coming to the tournament, book and pay for the events you intend to play in and any social events, and reserve one of our hotel packages if required.  We will reply by email with the total price to pay, and with an ID CODE for each person included in the reservation.

2.

ONLINE REGISTRATION FORM

Once you and your partner/team-mates have their ID CODES, please complete the online REGISTRATION FORM (available from 1st June).

This step will register your entry with the Directors.  If you do not already have a Madeira International BRIDGEMATE NUMBER, it will be allocated at this stage; if you have played in the tournament before, we will use the same BRIDGEMATE NUMBER as last time.

To register a PAIR both players must have their ID CODES.

To register a TEAM in advance of the tournament, at least four players must have their ID CODES.  (Teams registration forms will be issued during the Pairs tournament, so if you do not know who your team-mates will be, you can still RESERVE and pay in advance but REGISTER for the Teams once you arrive.)
