A Note about Convention Cards & Multi Defenses

You will need to complete the WBF convention card to play in any of the World Bridge Series events. You can find Word & Excel templates to use to complete the card at Anna Gudge's excellent site (where there is lots of additional information about the WBS. There is also a link there to the WBF Convention Card Editor, but if you choose to use that, please don't complain to Jan about all the problems you encounter, she stopped using it years ago and doesn't have any idea of how to do anything with it.

Although players are not required to provide you with a recommended defense to Multi, you are allowed to bring your own defense to the table with you and refer to it during the auction. You can bring either of the ACBL recommended defenses, or one that you have developed on your own or found someplace else.
