GNT Unit Qualifyer Returns in 2017

The unit qualifying events for the Grand National Teams (GNT) for flight B and C return in 2017.  Last year there were no unit qualifiers but this year in order to play for the District championship in Houston in April you must qualify at the unit level.  
The dates are as follows:
Flight B - February 26 at Dorsey's
This is a 2-session event.  Game time is 1:30 PM and TBA.

The unit will qualify 60% of the field, or 60% of both fields if held jointly. You technically qualify as an individual rather than as a team, even though you are qualifying in a team event.
You do not have to qualify in your unit. You may qualify at any unit event in the district.
The Super Flight is unlimited, Flight A is 0 - 6000, Flight B is 0 - 2500, Flight C is non-life master with less than 500 masterpoints.

The district finals for all four flights; ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘super flight’ will be held at the Houston sectional April 8, 9, 2017 at the Marriott Westchase, 2900 Briarpark Dr., Houston, TX.
The sessions will run at the same time as the sectional sessions, Saturday morning 10:00 and Afternoon 2:30. Sunday at 10:00 and TBA.
