Draws and Schedules Published; Some Start Times Have Changed, So Consult Your Draw!!!
All draws and schedules for tomorrow's Big-Little tournament are now published and viewable. NOTE: a few minor time changes were made after Carol sent her email to you. These adjustments were necessary to assure fairness and to assure that every player received a comparable amount of playing time. PLEASE RELY ON THE MATCH TIMES LISTED ON THE DRAWSHEETS.
Also note that for the G12 event only, which is divided into flights "Red" and "White,"each player will have one more match than currently displays in a yet-to-be-constructed "Blue" flight, where the winner of flight Red will play the winner of Flight White , #2 Red will play #2 White, and #3 Red will play #3 White. The 3 "Blue" flight matches will play at 12:00 (Red #1 vs. White #1) and 12:20 (Red #2 vs. White #2, and Red #3 vs. White #3).
CLARIFICATION -- ALL READ!
Players -- You will receive an automated confirmation message when you register. Some players have found it misleading. To clarify, this is not a limited draw event. Your credit card will not be charged until the draw is posted. Player "selection" entails a review of the applicants' brackets to be sure enough players have registered to run that bracket. Normally, 2 players will be enough. We will contact you individually if we have other solutions to propose. Always watch for more details from tournament officials.
