As part of the experiment to have a Section for people who wish to play at a faster pace we will try this variation for the next few weeks.
It will not apply to 2 week competitions or the CBAI Sims night.
The section will be limited to exactly 5 tables - no half table will be allowed.
The movement has to be a Howell to give a fair result.
8 rounds of 3 boards so you meet 8 of your 9 opponents.
There are SEATED POSITIONS at TABLE 1 N/S and 2 N/S.
If there are less than 7 tables for the rest of the members, the experiment will be suspended for that week and all players will play in one section.
For any further information on the above please contact Moya Murphy or Pat Cowley. Details of the Committee can be found under 'Information' button.
