New for 2019
Partners may now award KBFNC Qualifications to top 10% of the field at meet-up tournaments with 30+ registrants.
Qualifications may be awarded only to competitors who were KBF Members prior to start of competition, with no roll-downs for non-KBF Members and competitors previously qualified. For example, a club meet-up tournament (no “virtual,’ on-line event) with 37 registrants would be authorized to award qualifications to the top 4, assuming they are KBF Members (having paid their KBF membership dues prior to the event) and had not already qualified in earlier competition.
Partner qualification awards kick in when the number of event registrants reaches 30. Three for 30-34, four for 35-44, five for 45-54, etc.
