June Tournament Update

Hi all,

The big day is coming and is even now knocking on our door.

The First Ever Ft. Myers Go Club Monthly Rating Tournament
is tomorrow, Saturday June 9, starting at 9:30 for Registration, First games starting at 10:15, ending at 5 PM.

The three officers of the Ft. Myers Go club met yesterday to pound out the final details for the tournament. This is the final plans that we will use tomorrow.

All games will be dead time of 45 minutes each player. (We have a time limit in the Library meeting room and want all to have time for 4 game rounds.)

Pairing will be by PyTD software.

No prizes this tournament, but we will have them in future tournaments. We will have certificates for winners in each band.

We are following the AGA rules and will arbitrate any disagreements between players accordingly. Proper Go Tournament rules will apply, we will review them at the tournament.

Dan Moise, 4 dan from Sarasota plans on coming in the afternoon for support and will be available for teaching between games.

We will have the demo board, and have game problems posted for in between games.

If there are any problems during the tournament please address them to me, Kent Secor. I will be acting TD for this tournament, with Joshua Frye and Rob Cheyne assisting me.

Special notes, I suggest you bring a lunch as we only have time for a half hour lunch because of the time limit in using the meeting room.

As of now we do not have coffee supplies, (I apoligize for this last minute change), so bring your own thermos of coffee. If you would like to sponsor the event with coffee/tea making supplies let me know, thanks. Linda Ponader has offered to bring some snack items, thanks Linda for your support.
