CNSC 2005 Late Bird
On Sunday, June 12th, Craig Rowland will direct a one-day seven-round open late-bird tournament at the Port Credit Arena, 40 Stavebank Road, Mississauga.
We've added the Late Bird this year because of our change in schedule. At Hasbro Canada's request, the main event will run from Thursday to Saturday, which we hope will give easier access to the media and to senior Hasbro staff. However, since we'll have all the best players in Canada in one place and we would be wasting an excellent opportunity if we sent everyone home in the middle of the weekend, we're holding a separate "Late Bird" event.
The Late Bird is separately (and self-) funded, and will operate in all respects as a regular one-day tournament, which just happens to be scheduled conveniently for CNSC players. The entry fee is CAD 30.00, which local players are encouraged to pay to John Chew or Craig Rowland at their convenience, and which out-of-town players may pay at main event registration. There will be two divisions, split at 1400, with no playing up. Prize return will be at least 60%, most likely slightly more depending on player numbers and expenses. Because of our difficulty in finding a suitable venue, our seating capacity is limited to 44 players, so interested players should e-mail John Chew right away.
