HK Backgammon April tournament

Please note the location - we are alternating locations from month to month.

This is Our Main Monthly Gathering:
During our gatherings, we organize 3 different groups for play; no matter what your level you can enjoy an evening of good gaming:
1) EZ Play Group : Designed for social players who want to enjoy a few social games without the stress of a tournament format.  Ideal for beginners and for those looking to be coached in order to improve.
2) Championship division: Our most popular draw where experienced players try to out roll each other in  a double elimination fashion.
3) Open division: Open for our top end players featuring clock-enforced fast play and strict rules resulting in some exciting matches.

Please arrive by 7pm so we can do the draws and start promptly at 7:30 for an evening of exciting Backgammon. If you have one, please bring a board along though if you don't, we do have a few extra boards available. New members: please dont be shy and come introduce yourself to any of the organizers and they will help get you started.

For those participating in the Championship and Open divisions, we normally play Double Elimination Tournament and we follow these Tournament Rules and Standards

We go to 7 points on the winners rounds and 5 points on the consolation rounds.  If you are lucky enough to have a bye round, you can watch or seek out other players for a bit of practice.  We support 2 divisions.  A masters one with a clock and a Championship one which is a bit more relaxed without a timer.

If this is the first time you are signing up to attend an event, please drop a note to Dale Brunton along with which group you wish to play in.

We do NOT pay anything for our venue: Please have your dinner and order a drink or 2 during the evening (dont forget to tip our hostess too) so our group shows consideration for the great space and time that is being provided for us this week by http://www.jacksterrazza.com
