This tournament is by invitation only - you're invited unless you're uninvited.
Restricted means anyone not an Open player.
If you're unsure, just ask one of the director's.
We may limit either division to manageable bracket numbers (i.e. 16, 24, etc.) To ensure your spot, please RSVP. However, to assist in creating reasonable brackets for a smooth and timely tournament experience, the director's may move players (based on their skill level) up or down divisions, as necessary.
We use ABT rules. This means dice on checkers are good and legal moves. For further details, see http://usbgf.org/docs/rules.pdf
Mickey's opens at 11:00. There is often a Chouette before and after the tournament.
* Match lengths are based on 16 person brackets. The directors may adjust them to suit the actual number signed up. For example, an 8 person bracket might be 2 points longer.
