In Case of Rain:
Please check email frequently as it will be my primary mode of
communication if we need to make adjustments on the fly. I will always
do my best to make the right call based on the most up to date info I
have access to, but please be patient in possible rain-out/rain-delay
scenarios as the weather in our little coastal bubble can change in a
Scheduling: Due to a smaller than usual turnout all play will be
at Seascape Sports Club (SSC), and the tournament is scheduled to finish on
Sunday night. Please keep in mind that I do my best to avoid big gaps
between matches while still respecting rest periods. With Family
Divisions many draws become conditionally scheduled based on other draws
which sometimes can cause larger than desired time gaps between
matches. There is food across the street, free-wifi, and all the
facilities including the pool are open to tournament participants!
