Championship Teams of Four (MAJOR EVENT)
General. A straight knockout event, with the draw being made at the County AGM. Winners (or runners-up or combination of winners and runners-up) qualify for Pachabo. (Eligibilty for the Pachabo; players must have their County of Allegiance as Cumbria). Green-pointed event. Scoring by IMP's. Entries consist of a team of 4-6 players with only 4 players playing in any one round.
Eligibility. Bona fide county club members including those whose County of Allegiance is other than Cumbria or Direct members of the EBU whose County of Allegiance is Cumbria. A Bona fide member is one who has paid their membership subscription to a Cumbrian club for the current year of competiton.
Systems and Treatments Scoring IMP's. Ties broken by playing four extra boards until there is a winner
Sponsorship. Pachabo (entry fee and some expenses).
The first (top on the draw) placed team will be the HOME TEAM. The captains of each team are encouraged to contact each other and attempt to agree a date and venue for their match at as early a date as possible. In the event that the captain's are unable to agree a mutual date the HOME TEAM captain shall formally offer three dates which shall be on different days in different weeks including one weekend date. If none of these dates are suitable to the opponents the captain of the AWAY TEAM shall offer three dates on the same basis as above. In the event of any dispute the matter should be referred to the Tournament Organiser who will form a sub-committee consisting of the Chairman, Secretary and Tournament Officer which will consider the matter and whose decision is final. The matches must be played on or before the due date specified for each round on the draw - no extensions will be made except if the sub committee deem that there are exceptional circumstances. The current draw & results will be displayed on this page.
Normally the home team will be responsible for providing simple refreshments. If a club or other venue is chosen as a half-way point then each team will be jointly responsible for any charges. If the home team chooses its own club as the venue and the opposing team has to travel more than an average of 15 miles per player the home team will be responsible for any table charges, otherwise these will be borne equally.
Each match will be played over 24 boards in two sets of 12 boards. The home team will change polarity for the second stanza. A victory by 1+ IMP will constitute a win. In the event of a tie a further four boards will be played (and so on until a result is obtained).
Matches will be played without a Tournament Director present. It is hoped that any problems arising will be able to be resolved between the players at the time. In the event that this is not possible you may seek resolution of the problem by phoning one of the EBU Tournament Directors listed on the EBU website. If for some reason this is not possible a full report of the circumstances together with details of the hands should be made to the Tournament Officer immediately after the match.
The winning captain will be responsible for transmission of the result to the Tournament Officer.
