This event, early in the season, is for players of all standards; it is suitable as a first tournament for less experienced players. New names particularly welcome! 

PLAY will start at 9.30am.  The day will finish at the latest about 5.15pm after the prize giving; this will be as soon as possible after the last round finishes.

TIME CONTROL is 30 minutes per player per game; there will be 6 rounds. All players will play in all rounds (except for byes).  E.P.S.C.A. Rapidplay rules will apply: http://www.epsca.org.uk/rules/epscaquickplayrules06.pdf
