For detailed, round-by-round schedule information (and directions), please see the more detailed full schedule. We have scheduled rounds as per an adult tournament, which is a tighter schedule than usual for a school tournament, because everyone involved is an experienced competitor who would like to play as many games as possible. Please show up early for the day, and be ready to start each game promptly.


For qualification information, please contact event organizer Vera Bigall.
