On Wednesday 1 October 2014 we are holding our first publicized and “formal” tournament. To accommodate players of all levels, the tournament will consist of two divisions: Fish and Shark. The tournament entry fee for the Fish Division will be $5. The entry fee for the Shark Division will be $50. All entry fees (100%) will be returned to the players.
The tournament will be a single elimination “playoff” bracket of 7-point matches, with the losing semifinalists playing for third place. To the extent possible, we will follow the Rules of the U.K. Backgammon Federation.
The tournament will start promptly at 7:00 p.m. Registration will begin at 6:30 p.m. Please bring your board . . . and your kids! The tournament director will pay the $5 Fish Division entry fee for the first five (5) young players under 18 years old who register for the tournament.
