A highly prestigious "grass roots" event, the North American Pairs starts at the club level in June, July and August. Club-level qualifications may be earned at any club in any unit in any district. A player may qualify as often as desired and with as many different partners as desired. Unit-level qualifiers are optional and held after Sept. 1 and before the district final, which may be held after the unit final until the third week in January.  At the district final, both players must have qualified at the club level and must be members of the parent district.  A fixed amount prize will be awarded in all flights as follows:


  1. District 1 is entitled to 3 qualifiers.  District 1 consists of TWO divisions; the Eastern division and the Western division.  In the Even years the Eastern Division will receive a subsidy of $700.00 per player for their 1st place finisher and the Western division will receive  a subsidy of $300.00 per player for their 1st place finisher.  The third place qualifier will be allocated to the division with the greater participation.  In the Odd years the Western division will receive the $700.00 subsidy per player and the Eastern division the $300.00 subsidy.
  2. Invited defenders will receive $700 per person.
  3. No individual may collect two concurrent prizes.

The monetary award will be available on site.  Qualifiers must play in the national level event until eliminated to receive the award.

There will be no entry fee for the national level of the event.

Check with your district to learn whether it provides additional funding.  Some districts provide additional funding.  

The winning pair of EACH flight will receive a subsidy from Unit 194-230 which will be from the net proceeds from the District finals after expenses.
