Rules of the Competition

For quarter-final matches:

Option 1. Match of 24 boards played in two 12 board stanzas against the two other pairs. If match is tied then play an extra 4 boards to find a winner.

Option 2. By agreement between Captains, match of 32 boards. Played in stanzas of eight boards. Toss a coin for seating rights for even and odd stanzas. If match is tied then play an extra 4 boards to find a winner.

For semi-final matches:

Option 1. Match of 32 boards. Toss a coin for seating rights in odd or even stanzas. Play match over four 8 board stanzas. If match is tied then play an extra 4 boards.

Option 2. Play match over 40 boards, by agreement between Captains. Toss a coin for seating rights. If match is tied play an extra 4 boards.

For the final:

Option 1. Play match over 40 boards. Toss a coin for seating rights. If match is tied then play an extra 4 boards.

Option 2. By agreement between Captains, play match over 48 boards. Toss a coin for seating rights. If match is tied then play an extra 4 boards.

These rules are such that quarter-final matches are short enough to be played on a week day. Other matches are more suitable for playing at a weekend. I would suggest that a reasonably early start is made for these matches.

Winners of the competition are eligible to go forward and represent the County in the Pachabo competition next June. If required, a team can be selected from the winners and the runners-up. Any problems, contact the Competition Secretary.
