The Old Coach & Horses, Church Hill, Harbledown, Canterbury, Kent, CT2 9AB  (map)

Entry fee £10 (Money will be taken on the day)

Registration fee £3 (To cover trophies & bottles of wine)

£200 prize money (to be split between finalists - based on 20 players, all entry fee's go into the prize money)

Winner & runner up split the prize money & both receive small trophy

1/4 finalists receive a bottle of wine

Format: (dependant on numbers)

3 to 4 groups, Round Robin 5pt matches (aim for minimum of 4 matches each)

Winner of each group and best runner up play 5pt semi final, with the winners going through to the final.

There will also be a group auction:

The players will be chose at random into groups of players, the highest bidder for each group gets a chance to win all the money if the winner is within their group.

The last tournament their was a total of £95. 

Format may change depending on numbers. Although I aim to play at least 4 x 5pt matches.

Very Important

I will need confirmation if you are attending ASAP. 

Confirmation via e-mail only please so I can keep a record.

The tournament will be limited to a number of players to make the Round Robin format work. 

This will be advised once all confirmations are in or closer to the event.

Ideally this will be either 15, 18,20 or maximum 24 players. 

Any additional entries over these numbers means you will be held as a reserve player.

I need to control the number of players to make the teams even, otherwise it gets a little messy.

All match scores will be added to the UKBGF ratings 

Usual club rules apply (as per UKBGF) 

Based on the last tournament the mains finished about 6pm and the final finished about 7pm 

Look forward to seeing as many of you as possible. 

Any contributions towards additional trophies/awards will be greatly appreciated to help attract players. 

I organise this event purely for the love of the game and receive no money for doing so. 

The venue also receives no money for letting us play there. So please order drinks and food as this is their reward. 

They have offered to provide a buffet for a set amount per head, of which i will advise nearer the time depending on numbers of players.

Otherwise there is either a bar snack menu or restaurant menu to choose from. 

Local accommodation: Victoria Hotel, 59 London Rd, Canterbury CT2 8JY 01227 459333
