SP Mini Full Details
This was supposed to be posted as an idea only, pending a survey on interest levels, but it seems to have been somewhat concretised by the SA email. Anyway, the tentative details follow:
Venue: Signature Park Condominium Function Room
Buses: 61, 66, 157, 174, 970, 985
Day/Date: Sunday, 30th November 2008
Entry fee: $15 including lunch (lunch venue is a bus stop away)
Format: likely to be 8-10 games, Round Robin followed by KOTH
Registration time: 8:30 – 9 am
The organisers reserve the right to change any of the details given above.
If you’re interested in playing in the above mini, please drop a comment here, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or text 92965786. The message should contain your name, contact number and email. Please further indicate whether you are bringing a complete set (board, tiles with tile bag, racks, timer), an incomplete set (if so, please advise on what you’re bringing) or no set at all. No score sheets will be provided, but contestant score cards and results slips will be printed.
This will serve as a good warmup for all Causeway/ WYSC players (who are very welcome to join!). The organisers will decide on the number of divisions and the prize structure on the day of the tournament itself.
International players who happen to be in Singapore at the time are welcome to play, although we will limit the total number of players on a first-come-first-serve basis because of the size of the function room (so tell me early!).
The details from this post and further information will be sent out via email a while later to all SA members, and perhaps to other Yahoo! groups.
I certainly didn’t expect the low turnout rate but it turned out well for me anyway. This is despite the fact that I had to wait a total of 3 hours between my games in order for Tony and Marcus to catch up on the games. Anyway, I have a position to consider (and several others which may require more thinking, but I’ll only post them upon request). I’ve shared this with some others already:
Find the best play.
Nope, I’m not playing this year in either the Premier division or the Open division for Causeway, in case you haven’t read the email on the Causeway teams. I might, though, be doing a little (maybe detailed) commentary on Causeway when I am available to blog. The commentary would probably only be on the annotated games, since I’d be in Singapore. I hope Ricky continues his exciting Causeway coverage this year, or at least I hope someone starts!
