When: Every Wednesday. Tournaments start at 7:00 PM. Players saunter in earlier to play chouettes and head-to-head until the tournaments start at 7:00 PM.
Parking: The hotel has a free parking lot on the West side of the main entrance. Park as close to the golf course fence as you can; this will minimize the distance to The 19th Hole. You can also valet-park at the hotel’s main entrance.
If you wish to play in the tournament, please arrive before 7:00 PM. We seed the brackets with players present at 7:00 PM. To avoid delaying play, we don’t add late-comers to the brackets.
If you have a backgammon board, please bring it (especially if it is one of those fancy ones you can show-off to the rest of us). From time to time we find ourselves in a situation where we have more players than boards for our tournaments, which results in play delays. So, even if you have and old, beaten-up board, bring it; it will be better than no board.
Should The 19th Hole be hosting a private event, walk to The Cascade Poolside Restaurant, which as its name implies, is right next to the big pretty swimming pool. Go behind the bar, to the well-lighted area next to the Bocci court.
We are not affiliated with the Biltmore Hotel in any way. We just play there, as we have in the past played in other public venues. If you need additional information, please contact Leo (305-669-5260; Leo@MiamiBackgammon.com), not the Biltmore.
