Dear President,

 

17th BFAME CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013 (4th to 11th June 2013)

            AT HYATT AHMEDABAD, INDIA

 

Further to our BFAME Circular-3 of 13th instant, I wish to inform all that the organizers have succeeded in negotiating an attractive deal with a five star hotel, Hyatt Ahmedabad, located in the heart of the city adjacent to Vastrapur Lake and the popular Alpha One Mall which has all the amenities which one would expect.

As such our 17th BFAME Championships venue shall now be at Hyatt Ahmedabad Hotel instead of the previous Gulmohar Greens which was in the outskirts of the city with insufficient number of rooms as per our requirements.

The room rates as negotiated are much lesser than the published rates and are inclusive of all taxes with full board like breakfast, lunch, high tea, dinner and complimentary airport transfers.re

 

The rates will be as follows:

Hyatt King/Twin: Single occupancy US $ 120/- Double occupancy US$ 150/-

Hyatt Suite: US $ 190/- Single occupancy US $ 230/- Double occupancy

All bookings can be made directly to Mr. Satish at Hyatt. His cell no. is +91 82380 22543 and his email id is [email protected].

All bridge players are requested to mention BFAME Bridge Championships 2013 while doing their bookings as this is a special rate for the bridge players only.

 

Kindly let us know the number of teams your country would be participating so that we can finalize the format and other arrangements.

We shall appreciate if you could mail us their names, photographs (scanned copy to be attached with e-mails) for Identity Cards and the souvenir followed by their convention cards latest by_25th April’13 to any of the following addresses. The organizers have specially requested to provide passport copies in order to apply for permit for serving alcohol with dinner (at no extra cost) as Gujrat is a dry state for Indian nationals.

17th April 2013

To the Presidents of BFAME members NBOs of

Bahrain, Bangladesh, India, Jordan, Kuwait, Nepal, Pakistan,

Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria and UAE.

 

Dear President,

 

17th BFAME CHAMPIONSHIPS 2013 (4th to 11th June 2013)

            AT HYATT AHMEDABAD, INDIA

Further to our BFAME Circular-3 of 13th instant, I wish to inform all that the organizers have succeeded in negotiating an attractive deal with a five star hotel, Hyatt Ahmedabad, located in the heart of the city adjacent to Vastrapur Lake and the popular Alpha One Mall which has all the amenities which one would expect.

As such our 17th BFAME Championships venue shall now be at Hyatt Ahmedabad Hotel instead of the previous Gulmohar Greens which was in the outskirts of the city with insufficient number of rooms as per our requirements.

The room rates as negotiated are much lesser than the published rates and are inclusive of all taxes with full board like breakfast, lunch, high tea, dinner and complimentary airport transfers.re

 

The rates will be as follows:

Hyatt King/Twin: Single occupancy US $ 120/- Double occupancy US$ 150/- 

Hyatt Suite: US $ 190/- Single occupancy US $ 230/- Double occupancy

All bookings can be made directly to Mr. Satish at Hyatt. His cell no. is +91 82380 22543 and his email id is [email protected].

All bridge players are requested to mention BFAME Bridge Championships 2013 while doing their bookings as this is a special rate for the bridge players only.

 

Kindly let us know the number of teams your country would be participating so that we can finalize the format and other arrangements.

We shall appreciate if you could mail us their names, photographs (scanned copy to be attached with e-mails) for Identity Cards and the souvenir followed by their convention cards latest by_25th April’13 to any of the following addresses. The organizers have specially requested to provide passport copies in order to apply for permit for serving alcohol with dinner (at no extra cost) as Gujrat is a dry state for Indian nationals.
