When to be there
Arriving too late to participate? Hate baseball? Let Jim know. As club treasurer and social director, he's gauging interest in a an open-game night at the venue. There's also an opportunity to go watch Tournament Director Bryan Pravel perform improv at Chicago's legendary Second City comedy club. That will be from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. And no one hates laughing, right?
Regardless of which option you prefer, chances are great that all groups will link up for late-night drinks. Off the board, we Weasels aim to show our guests a great time! On the board, well, cover your vulnerable parts and watch your back!
Round 1: Saturday, September 1, 9:00am (registration closes at 8:45am). No end time. Lunch provided. Yay!
Round 2: Saturday, September 1, 6:00pm (registration closes at 5:45pm). No end time. Dinner on you own. Boo!
Round 3: Sunday, September 2, 9:00am (registration closes at 8:45am). Round will end between 3pm and 5pm. Lunch provided. Yay!
Awards: Sunday, September 2, 15 minutes after the end of Round 3 (followed by a group dinner at a local restaurant to be determined).
How the tournament will work
All games will be scored using the sum of squares scoring system, and players will be ranked by the sum of their top 3 scores. Awards will be given to the top 3 finishers and the top single-game scorer for each country.
