Important note :-
This year the hotel have organised a private buffet for hotel residents only; this will give players on the Saturday evening the opportunity to be flexible between 6-30pm and 8-30pm should games finish early or run late.
You MUST pre book this by midnight June 1st with hotel or by contacting us. NO bookings will be allowed on the weekend.
Because we have such a great IT department (MC) we will be introducing a new way to see your personal matches and the draw as a whole. Because of this we intend to no longer announce the draw verbally.
You will be able to see it on your phone, iPad, or laptop here :-
And here for individual players’ matches :-
Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with this system.
We also intend to show the latest draw on the screen.
All matches will be given a table number and rather than seek out your opponent you simply have to take a seat and he or she will either already be there or duly arrive.
We hope you are patient with this new system 🙂
Any questions please fire away,
The best reasons to attend ?
Its simply a great social event and all profits go to our chosen charity which this year is MIND.
Don’t forget to read that email 🙂
