Results slips will be placed on each table, and it is the responsibility of the winning player (the player who took the most coins) to hand this to the Umpire (Sid).
Time will be called 15 minutes before the end of the round when the present player will finish the turn, if that player had taken the first turn, then the player who went second will then complete their turn.
After a long discussion, it has been decided that only cards and not chits will be used during the tournament. Cards will be gathered and shuffled for both players at the end of each players turn. This is following recent best practice at SELWG and the EUROS.
There will be a banquet/feast/meal on the Saturday night, this will be at the wonderful Indian restaurant Mogal-E-Azam, just across the road from the venue. Great food and according to our chums from down South, good value.
